How do we formulate ruminant diets?
Using our unique system of feed and forage analysis, diets are formulated using software called Biopara-Milk. This software incorporates a model of liquid flow and digestion in the ruminant that predicts nutrient absorption from the rumen and small intestines every six minutes, 24 hours a day.
Based on a description of cow type and the rate of digestion of feed in the rumen, Biopara-Milk predicts the DMI of a diet and uses this to predict animal performance and milk yield. Because prediction of DMI is so crucial in determining the required energy density of a ration, the ability of Biopara-Milk to predict DMI to +/- 0.5kgDM/day enables nutritionists and farmers to:
Reduce costs and increase income!
Optimise feeding efficiency and reduce wastage
Balance the availability of quickly and slowly fermentable carbohydrate and protein in the rumen
Reduce the risk of acidosis
Determine the level of bypass protein and starch
Independently monitor the performance of 1st lactation heifers, 2nd lactation and 3rd lactation cows at any stage of lactation
Feed cows to their genetic potential
