An animal nutritionists role in a feed company

The role of a nutritionist in a feed mill is to develop and formulate animal feed products that meet the nutritional needs of various livestock species, such as poultry, swine, or cattle. They create balanced diets that provide the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals to promote animal health, growth, and productivity. They may also conduct research, analyze feed samples, and collaborate with other experts to improve the quality and safety of animal feed products.

We specifically looked for a nutritionist that was local to our area and had experience and expertise in grass raised livestock.
