Feed Adviser Register (FAR)

The Feed Adviser Register (FAR) recognises standards of professionalism within the livestock feed supply sector – which is good news for farming systems and the environment including reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The register operates through a network of Feed Adviser members that give advice to UK livestock producers.

For feed advice to be of a consistent high quality, advisers require a range of skills, namely:-

  • experience of farming needs, feed ingredients, livestock production requirements, animal nutrition;
  • established competence to consolidate those skills into professional advice;
  • an understanding of how nutrition can affect environmental performance of livestock on farm;
  • up to date knowledge of factors relevant to their customer requirements acquired through on-going training.

The latest FAR Progress Report summarises recent developments.

The Core Competences and training material are available on the FAR website
