Passports check on feed

PROVIDING guarantees of animal feed quality and traceability in a single document is the idea behind Dalgetys new feed passport.

Farmers buying from Dalgety and Oldacres will receive a passport book in the colours and style of the old British passports. The code number of every feed load delivered to the farm will be entered into the passport. That allows the firm to trace all the feed ingredients back to their origin.

Sotiris Papasolomontos, technical and marketing director with Dalgety, said some meat and milk buyers already demanded guarantees of quality and traceability. The passport provided all the information in a single document. &#42
