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.

Comprehensive Testing Solutions for Feed Millers

Feed milling today is a complex business, and agribusinesses both large and small need to balance the nutritional and safety needs of livestock with availability of raw ingredients and their seasonality and variability. Add to that the valuable supplementation and medication that millers supply, and it’s clear: you’re creating a complete nutritional delivery system, not just a simple mix of grains.

Analysis of Monogastric Feed using the DA 7250 Analyzer

Animal performance and feed milling cost are dictated by nutritional requirements of the feed products. Performing frequent checks against production specifications is important to ensure quality of the finished compound feed and reduce raw material costs. The Near Infrared Reflectance (NIR) technology is highly suitable for these purposes. Instead of the time consuming and labor intensive traditional wet chemistry methods, with NIR the multi component analysis is done in seconds. The latest Diode Array Technology allows the benefits to be even further exploited not requiring sample grinding or special cups.

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 using the DA 7250 NIR Analyzer

Near infrared reflectance (NIR) is an excellent method to test feather meal samples for nutritional composition. The DA 7250 performs multi-component analysis for moisture, protein, fat, and ash in less than 10 seconds.
