Feed Testing

Through our Food Testing Division, AGAT Laboratories can identify all components in feed to assist you in making the best decisions possible when selecting the feed types for your animals.

We have the ability to conduct analysis on feed for the following:

  • Identification of contaminants
  • Medical additives
  • Nutrients
  • Vitamins
  • Fiber content
  • Fat content

Feed analysis can help you protect the health of your livestock and can assist in makiing sure your livestock and crops are safe for human consumption. Feed can be scanned for harmful heavy metals which can remain in the animal’s tissue over time and for bioaccumulation which can cause health concerns to both livestock and humans. 

Additionally, monitoring the vitamin and nutrients of your feed can ensure you are providing your animals with the best product possible for the promotion of growth in your livestock. Some feed components may also contain additives or antibiotics that are beneficial to some animal species but could be harmful to others. Analyzing feed for these parameters can help you protect your investment.
