Precision Nutrition Rationing Programme

Our diet programme looks at a range of unique nutrients. This enables us to achieve optimal ration balance to deliver on your individual farm’s performance targets and to optimise margin over purchased feed (MOPF).

  • Rumen Unsaturated Fatty Acid Load (RUFAL) – This takes into account oil fractions which influences rumen function and butterfats.
  • Gluco TN – This looks at the precursors to glucose which an animal uses for energy, production, growth and fertility.
  • Rapidly Fermentable Carbohydrates – This provides a more detailed look at energy supply.
  • Total Fermentable Carbohyrates – The combination of fast and slow energy.
  • Structural Fibre Index – The amount of physical fibre in the diet.
  • Acid Load – This is an indication of rumen health.

Let your cows talk to us!

The cow is at the heart of everything we do. Many of our team are certified CowSignals® trainers. We will look at what your cows and youngstock are telling us in their behaviour and act accordingly; whether that’s tweaking the diet or suggesting changes in cubicle or feed fence set-up. For example, we look at:

  • Signs of neck rubs and how cows are standing at the feed trough
  • Body condition
  • Rumen fill
  • Dung scores
  • Ration makeup – using sieves to determine the balance of physical fibre in the ration.
