The background

This meeting has been held annually since 1967 and is the premier event of its kind in the UK.

Traditionally it took place in early January at the University of Nottingham Sutton Bonington Campus (School of Biosciences; the best School of its kind in the UK).

The date has now been moved to June to allow greater representation from other countries.

The meeting attracts delegates from all parts of the Feed Industry, ranging from Compounders / Raw Materials through to Supplement / Additive Companies, Vitamin Manufacturers, Pharmaceutical Suppliers, Advisors, Consultants, University / Research Personnel, Government personnel

Members of the Programme Committee are chosen from University staff and the Animal Feed Industry. Each year between 12 and 14 invited papers are chosen which are relevant to both the science and the practice of Animal Nutrition. They are presented by recognised authorities from Europe but also worldwide.

The Proceedings ‘Recent Advances in Animal Nutrition’ are considered essential reading by commercial personnel as well as scientists and students.

With its mixture of basic science and application, together with liaison between the University and the world of commerce, the meeting represents an excellent example of Technology Transfer.

Where are we?

Sutton Bonington is very accessible both from within the UK (road and rail links) and from elsewhere by plane - the East Midlands airport is only 8km away, and Birmingham / Manchester airports are within easy reach. For directions, see Sutton Bonington Campus.

The advent of two low cost airlines at East Midlands Airport with links to many European cities now makes travel to the meeting even easier.
