Course Description

Feed and food safety are critical elements of animal production. The feed industry has a responsibility to ensure the feed they manufacture meets a high standard.

Also learn about the FeedAssure® program, Canada’s gold standard in ensuring the safe production of livestock feed.

This module introduces the Feed Assure® program, the gold standard for feed safety in Canada.
