Livestock Event: The Feed Science Forums

A series of Feed Science Forums designed to offer practical science based advice to all farmers as well as for consultants and feed advisors will be held at the Livestock Event to be staged at The NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 8 and Thursday 9 July.

Staged by event organiser, the RABDF Events and the British Society of Animal Science, presentations will be delivered throughout the two days by some of the UK’s leading nutritionists and technical specialists. Subject areas to be covered include automatic feeding, feed conversion efficiency and crude protein nutrition.

The Feed Science Forums will be staged in their own open discussion area with visitor seating, enclosed by glass panels. Visitors will be encouraged to participate in the sessions using voting keypads. Selected presentations in the Forums qualify for CPD points under The DairyPro scheme for professional development. 

BSAS’s Mike Steele commented: “Once again, we are pleased to be working with RABDF on the Feed Science Forums with speakers who are experts in their fields. Farmers will find they will offer really useful advice and simple ‘take home messages’ on some of the latest research findings which can be used, in discussion with their advisors, to take a fresh look at improving feed efficiency and subsequent farm profitability. The Forums also provide an opportunity for scientists and farmers to talk so they can work together to solve some of the challenges facing the livestock industry.”
