The cost of animal nutrition represents the largest operating cost for most commercial livestock producers. In order to maintain an optimum balance between feed costs and productivity, all feed ingredients should be analyzed for nutrient concentration and these values are then used to formulate the rations and required supplements. However, the included feedstuffs vary widely in composition, due to origin, seasonal changes or year. Fourier Transform Near Infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) provides a fast and effective solution for analyzing raw materials as well as finished feeds in order to optimize the production steps and monitor the final product quality.
A set of universal FT-NIR calibrations for the analysis of a wide range of raw materials and final products in the feed industry are available. These calibrations help you to achieve a superior quality control, leading to an enhanced performance of your products.
FT-NIR spectroscopy offers a rapid, accurate and nondestructive tool for the analysis of different types of:
- Ruminant Feed (Calf, Dairy & Beef Cattle)
- Poultry Feed (Chick, Broiler, Breeder, Layer)
- Pig Feed (Piglet, Weaner, Grower, Finisher, Sow)
- Horse Feed
- Aqua Feed
