The progression of ruminant nutrition along with new insights into the rumen microbiome has led to the advancement in targeted feed services and ingredients to optimise rumen function and overall animal health.

Consistent heifer growth and performance

The diet and its content, density, balance of nutrients and palatability factors, especially with younger animals are all significant factors in heifer development.

We also do not want cattle to develop bad habits because of how we raise them. That can include rations that encourage them to learn to sort feed, or delivery programs that encourage them to eat slugs of feed, or to become competitive at the feed bunk. Or if it is a less dominant animal, not to eat only what it needs.

Consistency is important not only in animal feed formulation, but how and when the ration is presented to minimise waste. We can help establish practices and habits which can be implemented to help reduce waste in animal feeds.

As the industry’s understanding of the rumen environment improves, so too does our knowledge of how to overcome frequently seen challenges, in dairy and beef digestion. For example, the efficiency of the rumen to utilise feedstuffs can be impaired by the presence of oxygen, pH changes and changes to the microbiome. This knowledge provides producers with the opportunity to include rumen beneficial feed additives to increase rumen efficiency and overall herd profitability.

Online Feed Fibre Calculator

Calculate the percentage of dietary fibre in your feed

Our calculator is designed for nutritionists and uses averages of global raw materials to calculate the dietary fibre content (plus other more in-depth fibre parameters) of finished animal feed. These parameters are available within AB Vista’s Dietary Fibre analysis service (part of our NIR service).
