Animal feed quality is not only a vital matter of animal welfare. It is also essential for food quality and safety – being the key to growth and health, and thus to the economic success of the entire agricultural industry.

In a live webinar event, Cargill Animal Nutrition and Bruker will talk about two complementary, non-destructive technologies which enable comprehensive composition analysis for organic and inorganic constituents: near infrared (FT‑NIR) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF).

Time: 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
