It's Animal Health Week In The Province

This year’s national theme, “Optimal Nutrition for Optimal Health,” is intended to remind animal owners that what and how much they feed their animals plays an important role in their animals’ health and well-being.
 
Agriculture Minister David Marit says Optimal nutrition can affect everything from an animal’s immune system to weight gain.
 
Cody Allison is a Livestock Nutrition Consultant with Proveta and says it all starts with getting a feed test done.
 
“You can’t outsource through any feed company until you actually know what your forage has tested and the quality of it. You can either spend too much money that you don’t need to spend or you can be spending exactly what you need to spend. So, feed testing is huge and having the right person in your corner on the nutrition side of things is even more huge.”
