Infrared Forage Analysis:

  • Results in 24 hours – 9,000 analyses / year
  • Dry matter, crude protein, ADF, ADF-N, NDF, NDF-N, Ca, P, Mg, K, energy, lignin, soluble protein, ash.

Each feed sample is emptied into a container and mixed to ensure that the sample is homogenous. The sample is then packed into a specially designed sample holder with a glass bottom to be inserted into the Foss infrared reader where it is scanned. The results are automatically transmitted to a computer, where they can be printed and sent to the producer by fax or email.
