A Perspective On Mixing And Mix Uniformity: Part 6 - Summary


Nutrient uniformity is the common objective of every feed manufacturer. A great deal of emphasis is placed on uniformity because of regulatory compliance, animal performance, and the satisfaction obtained in producing quality feeds. It is surprising how few mixers are actually tested in any manner, let alone on a routine basis. It is hoped that mixer testing will become more commonplace and will be a part of the quality control procedures of every feed producer.

Further research is needed in the design of mixing equipment and additional animal experiments that will result in a better understanding of the value of uniformity and the cost of non-uniformity in livestock production.
