Measure important parameters in the production and use of compound animal feeds
Reject raw materials below specification or provide data for claims
Provide reliable input into least-cost formulation systems
Ensure proper batch formulation reducing waste and re-work
Ship feed at proper moisture to reduce raw material costs and risk of spoilage
Verify label specifications for proximate constituents on-farm
Ensure feed delivered meets nutritional specifications for maximum animal performance
Livestock producers require consistent and on-specification feed for each growth stage to meet production, growth, and weight gain targets. Precise nutritional content of compound feed is critical for efficient livestock production. For cattle producers, for example, calf, grower, cow, and finisher feeds all have different nutritional profiles.
NeoSpectra scanners can provide critical insights across the entire value chain with fast and accurate sample testing from the feed ingredients to the farm.
NeoSpectra scanners can measure raw materials, compound feed, and silages for important parameters including moisture, protein, fat, fiber, and ash. In-field analysis allows farmers and nutritionists to make real-time decisions on feed adjustments to maximize livestock performance and reduce overall feed costs.
The NeoSpectra scanner is a rugged, portable NIR analyzer of feed ingredients, forages, and compound feed on the farm or factory floor. Non-homogeneous and granular samples like feed pellets can be analyzed reliably with a Scanner rotator with no grinding required.
NeoSpectra customers can select from hundreds of ready-to-use feed and feed ingredient calibrations in the NeoSpectra LabStore and be ready to measure materials in minutes. Compound feed calibrations are available for poultry feed, swine feed, cattle feed, sheep feed and other livestock as well as aquafeed for aquaculture.
