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.
