Whether you have a suckler herd, buy in stores, rear calves or finish stock, the Mole Valley Feed Solutions team is on hand to help you maximise beef performance efficiencies and margins.
Our nutritionists will work with you to understand your specific goals and design a ration to meet growth rate targets. Our Precision Nutrition Beef rationing programme is backed up by science and enables specific nutrients to be finely balanced to optimise performance, whilst reducing the cost of every kilo of meat produced.
Mole Valley Farmers’ rationing programme, Precision Nutrition Beef looks at a number of unique nutrients which are at the heart of efficient beef production. Ultimately, optimal animal performance is dependent on the balance between these nutrients. By delving into these nutrients in detail, the team can help you improve performance efficiencies and ultimately, margins.
Some of the nutrients include:
Analysis of a sample of beef diets has shown that high Gluco TN levels are positively related to growth rate. At the same time, too much fibre – leading to a high Structural Fibre Index – is negatively related.
The appropriate ration balance will be dictated by individual farm growth rate targets and rumen health. For example, a farmer wanting stock to grow at 1.2kg per day will require a diet with a different balance compared to one aiming for 1.7kg per day.
Our team will work with you to design an appropriate diet depending on your system, target growth rates, market outlet and forage supplies.
Forage forms the foundation of any cost effective beef diet, so we routinely test forages and balance rations accordingly. We can also provide tips on how to improve forage management.
What’s your feed cost per kilo of live weight gain?
Optimising feeding regimes on beef systems is essential considering feed represents about 70% of variable costs. Mole Valley Farmers’ Beef Bureau Rationing Service can help you to lower your feed cost per kilo of live weight gain and maximise efficiencies. It provides a one-stop-shop for nutritional queries. There’s no need for a farm visit, the team can assess diets and advise on tweaks to drive performance over the phone or by email.
