Cost-effective and customized forage rations

Forage abundance and quality vary throughout the year and the cows' nutritional needs vary with age, parity and lactation stage. Over time, a feed strategy will also require continuous adjustments in order to optimize performance.

Using your milk analysis results and the milk recording reports to their fullest potential, your Valacta advisor can help you throughout the year to correct deficiencies and to maximize your milk production and profits.

In addition, our privileged access to each dairy cow's data enables us to determine their specific dietary needs and formulate customized rations. Using our Ration'L formulation software, your Valacta advisor can balance, validate and formulate rations for lactating cows, transition cows and heifers, based on the feeding system (individual, TMR, PMR, in groups).

To ensure that feed costs do not exceed your production revenues, we also help you monitor your feed margin as well as the cost of concentrates.
