To aid beef farmers produce a meat protein in the most cost efficient and sustainable manner by supplying them with detailed information and insights.

Through the NutriOpt platform, Trouw Nutrition delivers the latest data and insights that farmers need to drive sustainable precision farming, better animal performance and overall success. We do this through a set of NutriOpt solutions focused on actionable analysis, actionable insights, optimal diets and optimal performance. Developing more sustainable beef finishing strategies through improved nutrition and growth of animals.

Actionable analysis

The numbers tell the tale. Livestock farming can no longer operate on guesswork; it revolves around capturing valuable data and insights to help beef producers make better decisions to be economically sustainable.

Given the huge variation in forage and feedstuff quality, determining the exact composition of your ingredients is vital – not only to better match the nutritional needs of the animals, but also to optimise feed costs and growth.

By using the actionable analysis services within NutriOpt, farmers can get a better grip on raw material quality. We offer fast, accurate and cost-effective desktop and mobile solutions to scan your raw materials for different components, including protein, fibre fractions, mycotoxins and more.

Actionable insights

Having access to farm data is one thing but it’s another to capture value from the data and to apply it to your daily farm management, feed strategies or animal health plans.

NutriOpt offers a number of services that convert data into actionable insights and recommendations and visualises it in an easy-to-understand manner, through reports and dashboards. The insights are based on a robust database of samples from around the world.

Having accurate and actionable insights readily available gives cattle farmers a better understanding of their exact animal requirements, making it easier to formulate an effective strategy.

Optimal diets

A major challenge in developing nutritional strategies for beef cattle is knowing how to achieve maximum growth for high-quality meat production without compromising on the animals’ health and causing metabolic disorders.

To build an optimal feed strategy, you need accurate data, supported by our actionable insights which can be integrated with farm programmes such as the Least Cost Formulation (LCF) software used by feed advisors. Creating the optimal ration depends on many factors, including the type of farm, region, availability of raw materials and specific farm goals.

NutriOpt offers a range of services to support feed cost reduction, enhanced feed efficiency, optimising rumen health and feed testing.
