Feed Milling

Feed millers are faced with the difficult task of producing to the same specifications week after week and maintaining equivalent or better profitability, while raw materials and their prices are constantly changing. The only way to succeed is to have complete knowledge of your raw materials and your process. We have the tools for compositional analysis of ingredients and finished feeds to help improve your profitability.

  • Detect out-of-spec shipments before they are unloaded
  • Identify and maximize use of higher value grain
  • Optimize drying to maximize moisture content and reduce energy use
  • Maximize feed value and minimize use of supplements by analyzing actual amino acid content
  • Verify the quality of your finished products before bagging & shipping
  • Ensure product safety by tesing for mycotoxins in grain at in-take and finished feeds prior to load-out

Screening Ingredients

Agricultural products are highly variable and heterogeneous.The 6-second analysis speed of our Diode Array NIR instruments allows you to analyze every shipment of incoming material. Monitor suppliers for out-of-spec claims and avoid placing poor quality material into your bins.

Analysis of Monogastric Feed using the DA 7250 Feed Analyzer

Animal performance and milling cost are dicated by nutritional requirements. Food producers must have full knowledge of the nutritional value of raw materials and finished products. The DA 7250 Feed Analyzer, a proven full-spectrum NIR instrument, can analyze all the required parameters in monogastric feed accurately in 6 seconds.

Analysis of Properties of Soymeal Using FT 9700 FT-NIR Analyzer

Major nutritional components of soymeal, such as moisture, protein, and fat, can have a key influence on the animals’ growth and, ultimately, the overall profits of farmers. Therefore, accurate analysis of these nutritional parameters of soymeal is highly important to allow producers to ensure that they are meeting the end-usersspecific needs. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, on the other hand, can rapidly quantify these parameters without the need for solvents or lengthy sample preparation. When combined with chemometric techniques, such as partial least squares (PLS), NIR spectroscopy can provide a fast and accurate method to quantifying these key nutritional parameters in soymeal at any stage of the production process. This works shows the analysis of soymeal performed by FT 9700™ FT-NIR analyzer.

Analysis of Properties of Corn Using FT 9700 FT-NIR Analyzer

Moisture, starch, protein and fat are important parameters to consider when assessing the quality of corn. The specialty end uses for corn often require these parameters to fall within a certain range. More worryingly, particularly high or low concentrations of these parameters could lead to health or economic issues.This work shows accurate determination of multiple parameters of ground corn samples obtained with the FT 9700 NIR.

Analysis of Feather meal for Moisture, Protein, Fat and Ash using the DA 7200 NIR analysis system

The DA 7200 is a proven full-spectrum, NIR instrument designed for use in the rendering and feed industries. In this work the Diode Array 7200 is used for the determination of protein, moisture, fat and ash in feather meal.
