Good practice on feed safety in farming
This course can be run as a tailored option for those who have a number of staff who would benefit from the training or if you would like to register your own interest to attend this course on the next available date please complete the enquiry form
Benefits of attending
Food and feed safety has to be ensured at all stages of the feed chain including on farm. Farming organisations producing feed have to implement feed safety controls relevant to the required safety of their products, including HACCP based systems where applicable. Feed safety control measures are typically integrated into good practice [e.g. good agricultural practice (GAP) as good animal feeding practice and good hygiene practice (GHP)]. GHP addresses the conditions and measures to ensure safety of products. In hazard analysis (HACCP) based safety management systems many GHPs are likely to be prerequisite programmes (PRPs). PRPs may form the basis of the feed safety system. However, where hazard analysis identifies significant hazards that need to be controlled by targeted preventative measures they may be categorised as critical control points (CCPs).
This course provides an understanding of typical hazards and their cause, control measures based on accepted good practice and feed safety management within a hazard analysis context. Special reference will be made to microbiological and chemical contaminants and the identification, evaluation and control of hazards significant for feed safety. The focus is on:
- on-farm production of feed that incorporate additives or in-feed premixes, and
- PRP-based feed safety system where controls are based on good practice (GAP and GHP).
The course will benefit those responsible for establishing and implementing feed safety control measures and those assuring compliance with adopted practices, and those wishing to obtain a better understanding of feed safety systems for on-farm feed production.
- Background to feed safety requirements
- Feed safety issues
- Hazard causes and sources
- Control measures
- Feed safety management systems
Case studies will be used to illustrate typical operations involving premixtures and the development of feed safety systems based on a hazard analysis approach.
