Animal feed means products of vegetable or animal origin, in their natural state, fresh or preserved, and products derived from the industrial processing, for animal feeding. These can be premixtures, complementary feeding stuffs with a high content of a certain substance, complete feeding stuffs, additives or just products that are meant for animal feeding.
Animal feed is an important part of the products that Primoris analyzes. Our experience with this product makes us a reliable partner; both in analyses as in support.
