Precision farming solutions for dairy cows

To help dairy farmers reduce input costs, detailed information and application control are essential.

Through the NutriOpt platform, Trouw Nutrition delivers the 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.

Actionable insights

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

Data and insights generated within NutriOpt, for example on mycotoxin contamination and the nutritional components of forages, help farmers to adapt rations when needed.

Having accurate and actionable insights readily available, gives farmers a better understanding of what their dairy cows require, making it easier to formulate an effective strategy.

Actionable analysis

The numbers tell the tale. Dairy farming is no longer about guesswork; it revolves around capturing valuable data and insights to help dairy farmers make better decisions and run the best business possible.

Given the wide variation in feedstuff quality, determining the exact composition of your ingredients and silages is vital – not only to better match the nutritional needs of your dairy cows, but also to optimise feed costs.

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

Optimal diets

To build the optimal diet, you need the right data, that is supported by actionable insights and able to be integrated with farm programmes such as the Least Cost Formulation (LCF) software used by feed advisors.

Creating the optimal animal diet depends on many factors, including the type of farm, region, availability of raw materials and specific farm goals. Farmers may want to use more by-products in their total mixed ration, increasing income over years.

NutriOpt offers a range of services for rumen optimisation and to measure the effects of supplements on your ration.

Optimal performance

Before you implement a chosen strategy to increase cow performance, animal health or overall farm efficiency, you want to be sure it is the right decision and the best course of action.

The NutriOpt Dairy model can help farmers achieve this certainty by providing tailor-made feed analyses. This model takes into account products of rumen fermentation, digestion in the small intestine and fermentation in the large intestine.

With this information, farmers and nutritionists can feel more confident about the decisions they make and successfully work on cost efficiency, animal health, optimal usage of on-farm available forage and optimal milk component yield.

Knowledge feeds success

When every decision impacts your animal performance and business success, you want to build on more than just intuition.
