Between the cattle metabolism facility and the smaller livestock holding facility there is a large feed processing and storage area. In addition to two large feed preparation benches, there is also a lockable preparation room, a large cold room, and chemical storage facilities. This area has forklift access with a dedicated bulk feed storage silo.

 

Open air insect meshed half walls provide fresh air with ventilator fans in roof.
 

For the comfort of staff and researchers, this facility also has bathroom facilities including showers, and a fresh drinking water supply. Within the building there is also a write up area in an office with multiple desks and internet connections.
 

To maximise the occupational health and safety of the researchers, there are two Mettler Toledo ground scales to facilitate the weighing out of large crates of feed by sliding them along the ground rather than the researchers or staff having to lift the heavy containers.
