Technique and animal nutrition: Joint research for innovative products and procedures

by Dipl.-Ing. Alexandra Kirchner, Rolf-Michael Blume, Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Georg Franke, Internationale Forschungsgemeinschaft Futtermitteltechnik e. V. (International Research Association of Feed Technology, IFF), Braunschweig, Germany

In Germany, approximately 80 percent of the produced compound feed is supplied in pelleted form. Since its foundation in 1961, the IFF Research Institute of Feed Technology has been establishing scientific basics for the production of pelleted compound feed and the research works go on since then.

The long-standing and manifold research and development works of the Research Institute of Feed Technology regarding milling, mixing and agglomeration influenced the technological development of the production processes of the European feed industry significantly. On that basis, modern research appeals to the current scientific issues.

Research Institute and Research Association
The Research Institute of Feed Technology is maintained by the International Research Association of Feed Technology (IFF). At present, about 80 national and international companies are combined in the Research Association. Membership is open to any interested company.

The Research Association was founded on the initiative of the German Association of Feed Industry. It exclusively pursues scientific aims to clarify any of the technological issues or problems encountered in industrial compound-feed production through basic research and transfer of findings to real systems and to advance developments in the processes used in feed compounding. The fast and comprehensive transfer of the research findings is ensured by the wide range of seminars.

The most important body in the institute’s research focus is the Scientific Advisory Board, which is composed of representatives from relevant research institutions as well as industry and which actively supports research topics based on the requests and needs of the industry.
