Their partnership with Van de Meerakker Service has provided an excellent additional service to the agriculture and food sector and significant added value to the industry.

Analyses provide insight into feed composition

Testing provides insight into the composition and nutritional value of feed. Using NIR techniques, primary parameters such as moisture levels, crude protein and fibre fractions are analysed. Additional tests and calculations determine the total nutritional value. Various roughage analysis packages are available:

Grass silage nutritional value

Dry matter, crude protein, fibre fractions, ash, crude fat, vs-os (digestibility), sugar, ammonia, pH, nitrate, NDF, ADF, ADL, NDF-vc (NDF digestibility), lactic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid

Maize silage nutritional value

Dry matter, crude protein, fibre fractions, ash, crude fat, vc-os (digestibility), sugar, ammonia, pH, starch, resistant starch, NDF, ADF, ADL, NDF-vc (NDF digestibility), lactic acid, acetic acid, butyric acid
