Analysis Glossary

Limits to Usage

Anti-nutritional factors include erucic acid, glucosinolates, tannins and sinapine. Checks should be made on the erucic acid and glucosinolate levels as they are unpalatable to ruminants, however these are normally low in new varieties.

Storage / Processing

Correct processing will produce a stable product with little anti-nutritional factors.

Material to have been stored in compliance with DEFRA code of practice for the control of salmonella.


Feeding rates are estimates, and other factors, such as animal health and environment, can have a greater impact on how animals perform. There is no guarantee that animals will perform as expected if fed the suggested rates. Rations should be balanced to provide enough energy and protein for animals, and they should include enough forage to keep the rumen healthy. Animals also need access to fresh water at all times.
