Welcome to the Feed Adviser Register and Forage Analysis Assurance Group


The Feed Adviser Register is a professional register for people who provide feeding advice on livestock farms. It aims to provide quality feeding advice whilst at the same time increasing production efficiency and reducing environmental emissions.

The register was set up by AIC and the feed sector in response to the Government’s commitment and industry and consumer demands to reduce ammonia and greenhouse gas emissions from farmed livestock. Since its launch in 2013, over 1100 feed advisers from all over the UK have joined.

Forage Analysis Assurance Group - Forage from grass, whole crop or maize is one of the most economic feeds for ruminants, especially dairy cows. Knowing the nutritional properties of silage is key to formulating diets that optimise livestock production while minimising adverse impacts on the environment, e.g. reducing greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions.

FAA Group provides quality assurance across all its members’ laboratories to ensure consistent and reliable silages testing results by operating a proficiency test scheme.

FAR recognises standards of professionalism within the livestock feed supply sector - which is good news for farming systems and the environment.
See what some of the registered advisers say:

FAR Adviser and calves.jpg

'FAR is something which I think will build a strong industry value, not just at business level but also at primary producer level. Competent advice, source assurance and business integrity is what will help drive our agri industry forward. FAR will benefit the entire industry by setting a benchmark standard for professional people of all ranges that can help support government targets on GHG emissions, the increased requirement for feed efficiency at farm level and improve agri-industry image from a public perspective. '

'I think FAR is helping to ensure that feed advice given to UK farmers is the of the best possible level, and is helping to ensure the profession is trusted and viable. '

'As such I have seen that membership of and training in the core competences for FAR have been of great benefit to the ruminant feed industry and to their clients. '

'FAR is a start towards giving our profession more credibility in the eyes of producers, giving them the ability to judge whether or not to accept the advice from someone.'

“We soon located the driver leaving Tesco’s with a meal deal.
