Optimizing Animal Feed Production

Animal Feed Production is More Than a Cost Center; it is the Cornerstone of Efficient Meat Production

Animal feed production represents close to 70% of the cost in meat production. However, feed production has been considered a cost center, when it should be considered a profit center. The production of high-quality animal feed at the best possible cost helps maximize the goals of the nutritionist and animal producer.

The key to the efficient production of high-quality feed is threefold:
1) optimizing your feed process; 2) implementing the tools to benchmark and track the quality production; 3) solid training and management programs to support these efforts. NutriQuest can be your partner in closing the gap because we have been in your shoes. The experts at NutriQuest Manufacturing Services have managed feed mills and premix plants; they have managed quality and safety programs. They understand how to optimize the feed manufacturing process using solid scientific principles.

We Bring the Focus on Your Process and Systems That you Don’t Have Time to Handle

Process Support

Our experts have an intimate knowledge of feed production systems because they understand and are practitioners of the science of feed production. NutriQuest Consultants have a proven track record in analyzing process systems so that the finished product is of high quality AND meets the needs of the formulating nutritionist.

NutriQuest Consultants also understand the constraints of animal feed production, especially when it comes to capital. NutriQuest believes in a balance of training and process improvements to help the customer achieve their goal: to make high-quality animal feed at the best cost possible.

Safety Management

The culture of NutriQuest is one of safety, and our Consultants are practitioners in the art and science of safety management. All consultants are OSHA authorized 10/30 hour trainers, and they have managed safety systems. More importantly, they understand that the difference between a good safety program and a great safety program is servant leadership.

Servant leadership and understanding the needs of the customer; that is the NutriQuest difference. Our Consultants work with you and your team. We analyze the gaps in your safety program and work diligently to fill those gaps. We train and reinforce, always remembering that safety is about the folks that make the animal feed.


Research is a cornerstone at NutriQuest, and our consultants are uniquely qualified to conduct research for the benefit of our customers. Whether it is quantifying your process using process improvement methodologies, or the development of new and innovative feed product forms, NutriQuest Consultants use manufacturing research to better your business.

Our consultants are trained in manufacturing research along with having practical plant experience. Therefore, our consultants do not conduct research for the sake of research. Our consultants use research as a tool to exceed the expectations of our customers.

Quality Management

NutriQuest defines quality as exceeding the expectations of the customer. NutriQuest analyzes and assesses your Quality Program through this lens: exceeding the expectations of the customer.

NutriQuest Consultants analyze your Quality Program, making sure that regulatory needs are met, but more importantly that your Quality Program addresses the needs and expectations of your customers. Our Consultants believe that the reason we exist is to serve our customers, and your Quality program should reflect this philosophy.
