Kansas State University Researchers Study Safety of Animal Feed

The K-State researchers are working to protect food from risks to raw farm products entering U.S feed mills.

Researchers at Kansas State University are studying the safety of animal food produced in feed mills in an effort to maintain safe food for animals and humans. Assistant professor of animal sciences Cassie Jones, says they’re trying to protect food from dozens of risks in the nearly 6,000 feed mills in the United States.


   
Jones and her colleagues are focusing their research on feed for hogs and have been conducting trials in the university's Cargill Feed Safety Research Center considered to be the only bio-security level-2 facility in the world that can conduct this type of research. The American Feed Industry Association reports nearly 300 million tons of agricultural feed are processed each year in U.S. feed mills.
