Proximate Analysis (Feed)

BUCHI’s solutions for proximate analysis of animal feedstuffs are developed to provide a top level, very broad classification of feed components for legislative purposes. Four standard constituents can easily be obtained via chemical reactions and experiments by BUCHI, and are an inexpensive way to track deviations from the quality and composition of feed and feed ingredients.
