Trouw Nutrition has launched an online swine feed recommendation application for every phase of production. The tool helps farmers to determine the ideal feed formulation for breeding, growing and finishing swine based on a wide variety of variables. The modelling behind the application is based on the latest nutritional scientific norms.
Currently, manual reference source consultation and calculation is needed to determine the optimal combination of feed components. The new online swine recommendation application has automated these steps and delivers faster and more reliable results.
Furthermore, the tool is capable of taking real-time variables into consideration. These include environmental factors such as temperature and health status, as well as management factors such as the nutritional energy system (i.e. metabolic or net energy) that is being used. The result includes recommendations on nutrients, vitamins, minerals, protein, feed additives and raw materials.
The feed recommendations generated by the online application are compiled from three different sources: research done over the past few years in the global research centers of Trouw Nutrition, the most recent industry literature and data, and best-practice insights and experience acquired by Trouw Nutrition experts in the field.
