Identifying opportunities for continued improvements to the on-board live export feed ration

Providing the correct quality and quantity of fodder and feed to livestock during export voyages is a significant and fundamental part of ensuring the welfare of the animals.

This project aimed to analyse previous research, existing livestock export and stockfeed standards, scientific literature and observational and anecdotal evidence from within the industry to identify changes to improve feed ration requirements applied to livestock exports, in terms of quality and quantity. The project specifically considered how best to address the issue of pellets breaking apart into fines.
