Analyse forage for yourself, on-farm

  • Historically, forage samples are collected on-farm and then posted to a commercial laboratory for analysis.
  • NIR4 Farm is a portable Near Infrared Reflectance (NIR) device designed to analyse forage in real-time.
  • Analyse forage yourself on-farm to quickly optimise the ration in order to maximise milk yield.
  • Gives you the power to take control, meaning you can feed your livestock the most effective ration based on real-time analysis.


Designed to analyse forage in real-time, optimise your ration and maximise your yield

  • Forage forms the basis of all cattle rations and can account for anywhere between 40% and 70% of a ruminant’s daily intake.
  • As a naturally variable material, it is hugely important that forage is analysed before making dietary changes.
  • The results from this analysis determine the advice given and formulation of the subsequent ration plan.
