Ration Management Key Benefits

Effective ration management has a direct impact on your bottom line. Achieve operational efficiency by reducing feed waste, verifying feeding accuracy, tracking cost per head per day and, most importantly, creating the proper ration mix your nutritionist recommends. Correct rations maximize milk production in dairy cattle and increase rate of gain in feeder cattle while improving herd health and ensuring more effective inventory management.

A ration management solution from Avery Weigh-Tronix provides the platform you need to customize rations and make better management decisions based on accurate, timely information.

Dry Matter Intake (DMI)

No matter what type of livestock you have, the formulation of your feed rations relies on DMI. Having a solution that allows you to easily track and adjust dry matter of individual ingredients is key to maximizing gains and profitability. With volatile commodity prices, achieving the target dry matter intake versus over or under feeding DMI has a direct impact on profitability.

Inventory Control

Reduce Cleanup: To maintain a cost-effective business, it is vital to limit waste while maintaining maximum production. Our solutions track and provide the information necessary to feed the correct batch amount while allowing you to easily adjust daily DMI percentage based on consumption of the previous feeding.

Reduce Operator Error: Monitoring operator performance and consistency helps eliminate feeding errors to maximize herd health and increase savings.

Manage Inventory: Gain complete visibility of available commodities, monitor usage and place accurate, timely orders by integrating ration management software with an Avery Weigh-Tronix truck scale which allows you to track all commodities entering and leaving your operation.

Increased Productivity

Manage Costs: In order to optimize profitability, it is important to clearly understand revenue versus true feed costs. Our feed management systems can analyze actual feed costs per head, group or pen within a specific time frame. This provides real-time data needed to maintain profit margins, even in times of volatile input costs.

Increase Yield: Nutrition is key to maintaining maximum milk production or rate of gain. Ration management solutions from Avery Weigh-Tronix provide increased visibility and control over your herd's DMI and, ultimately, your profitability.

Improve Time Management: Batch loads more efficiently and mix rations for multiple pens based on mixer capacity. Rations can be stored in the indicator, eliminating the need for feed sheets, maximizing efficiency and minimizing operator error.
