This year Schothorst Feed Research will organise the Feeds & Nutrition course for the 9th time. The Feeds & Nutrition course is a yearly recurring coursethat is specially designed for animal nutrition specialists. The 9th edition will be held 3-7 June 2019 at the Inntel Hotels in Zaandam, near Amsterdam.
From science to practice
The goal of the Feeds & Nutrition course is to share scientific knowledge in such a way that the participant can implement this knowledge in daily work. To achieve this, 16 different modules are offered from which the participants can compose their own program. Besides the species-specific modules (basic principles, nutrient evaluation, applied nutrition and feed formulation for poultry, swine and ruminants) also species transcending topics are offered (feedstuffs, feed quality, feed processing, mycotoxins).
All modules are given by researchers and consultants from SFR, together with experts from the field. More than 120 participants from all over the world working in the feed industry are expected. The setting of the course stimulates participantsto share experiences in combination with theoretical background. For each animal category, an excursion is organised to relevant Dutch companies to provide a glimpse into Dutch livestock farming.
The course is designed for nutritionists, purchasing managers, product managers and quality assurance managers of feed and feed additive producers or others involved in the feed and allied industry.
The modules will be held over the course of one week and will be given in English. Registration is required before May 10, 2019. More detailed information can be found at the company’s website: www.schothorst.nl.
