Performing frequent checks against production specifications allows feed millers to ensure quality of ruminant feed products. Ensuring nutritional composition is ideal for animal performance while reducing 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.
