The following represents a summary of the present principal features and capabilities of Roslin Nutrition:
Using our 5-stage process we will work together from initial contact, to the creation of a detailed protocol, through feed manufacture to live phase planning and implementation which culminates with a final comprehensive and detailed report.
Within our animal technician team, we have members of staff who have experience working with pigs and poultry, this ensures that the animals we have on study are monitored constantly by experts in their field.
We currently operate seven units capable of hosting broilers, layers and turkeys. Each unit can be customised to fit any client requirement that aligns with European and UK regulations. In addition to this we have two cabins capable of running piglet studies with each cabin having 32 pens and each pen housing 4 piglets.
We operate our own specialist feed mill on site that has the capability of manufacturing bespoke trial feeds in either mash or pellet form. We analyse individual components prior to feed manufacture and every batch of finished feed is tested before the study commences thus allowing full traceability and comfort to the sponsor.
