The feedmill is the backbone of the overall cattle feeding operation within any feedlot. Efficiency within the milling and feed delivery processes can be measured by producing rations:
- according to specifications,
- that are uniform and consistently high in quality,
- that provide proper nourishment of cattle, and
- that are delivered accurately and efficiently to the feedbunk.
The course includes the following nationally recognised units of competency:
- FPMAGP405 - Assess feedlot grain processing systems
- FPMOGP406 - Operate feedlot grain processing systems
These units form part of the overall 10148NAT - Certificate IV in Feedlot Production (Feeding Management) qualification. The detail below sets out the key components studied within this short course.
- Detail grain processing objectives
- Evaluate grain processing systems
- Assess the economics of grain processing
- Identify components of grain processing systems
- Identify grain processing principles
- Requirements of grain processing system maintenance
To assist you in deciding if you are ready for study at this level:
- Are you interested in learning the science behind feedlot grain processing to optimise ration energy?
- Are you self motivated? do you have a range of study skills and tools to direct your study? Organising your study time, so as to prioritise your workload, will allow you to get the most out of your studies and meet your assessment deadlines.
- Study will involve a range of reading activities, calculations, report writing and conducting research. This course includes practical assessment elements.
