The Nutrition Laboratory supports the R&D activities of the whole PCC Network and provides technical services and information to students, researchers and farmers in assessing the nutritive value of feedstuffs and other related samples to address nutritional problems and nutrient deficiencies of ruminants and other livestock species.
At present, the laboratory performs proximate analysis such as dry matter/moisture, ash, crude protein, crude fat and crude fiber; detergent analysis such as acid detergent fiber, neutral detergent fiber and acid detergent lignin; mineral analysis such as Calcium and Phosphorus and other relevant analysis.
Normally, once the request is approved, the examination is completed and the results can be released within 2 to 14 working days. Release of the results also depends on the number of samples submitted and tests conducted.
