Precision farming solutions for swine

To help swine 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 analysis

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

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

By using the actionable analysis tools and services within NutriOpt, swine producers 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 raw materials for different components, including protein, fibre fractions, reactive lysine, mycotoxins (Mycomaster) and more.

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.

NutriOpt offers a number of services that convert data into actionable insights and recommendations and visualizes it in an easy-to-understand way, using reports and dashboards. For mycotoxins, NutriOpt offers solutions to measure the amount of mycotoxins in the raw material and create actionable insights on contamination levels as well as recommended actions. The insights are based on a robust database of samples from around the world.

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

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 growing pig diets, increase piglet performance, lower feed costs or reduce antimicrobial usage.

NutriOpt offers a range of feed formulations and services based on the latest nutritional insights and science to support you in creating the best diets. Additional services include tools for fibre and protein optimisation (Kinetio).

Optimal performance

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

Watson and the NutriOpt Sow model can help farmers achieve this certainty. These simulation and economic optimisation models can calculate and predict the growth of your pig herd or certain measures of sow performance, taking into account your specific circumstances.

By using the models, farmers and nutritionists can feel more confident about the decisions they make and successfully work on cost reduction, animal health and animal performance.

Knowledge feeds success

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