SFR intensifies collaboration with FeedValid

Schothorst Feed Research (SFR) and FeedValid are intensifying their collaboration on a number of issues including additional research into new and existing animal feed ingredients, consultancy and training and education programmes

According to Wilfried van Straalen, senior researcher and ruminant advisor at SFR, the experiences and insights into the world of circular raw materials and animal feed ingredients that FeedValid brings are valuable to SFR, giving them a broader perspective on developments in the feed ingredients market. 

Jannet de Jong, head of Innovation and R&D at FeedValid highlighted that the company would be sharing their knowledge about circular raw materials through SFR training, while also contributing to research to help stimulate innovation within the sector. In addition, SFR's expertise could be harnessed for FeedValid's existing ingredients for various issues such as the digestibility coefficients of circular feed materials or the rumen resistance of their sugared protein sources.

"At FeedValid we specialise in processed animal feed ingredients. We have a wide range of ingredients with a low CO2 footprint and always anticipate emerging raw materials," nutritionist Anouk Hagens of FeedValid said. He also emphasised that their close collaboration with SFR would help provide up-to-date information and knowledge to their customers.
