Ghent University and BESTMIX as a Service

Since 1995 the University of Ghent has been using BESTMIX formulation software in its animal production classes. The lectures start by explaining linear programming and how that translates into the formulation of feed. Through the use of BESTMIX students learn how to prepare a complete feed by entering all the data into BESTMIX and finally delivereing feed that meets the prescribed requirements.

Close collaboration with the industry is the main strength of the Applied Life Sciences programme. In the programme we address the entire flow from theory via the composition of the feed to the actual production in our own mill. The hands-on experience gained by formulating the recipes in BESTMIX and producing them with state-of-the-art formulation software also adds to the students' resumes.
