Infrared cow feed analysis

Our infrared analyses are:

  • Quick (results are generally available within 24 hours)
  • Accurate (wet chemistry analyses are also available if needed)
  • Offered for a wide range of feed

Our infrared analyses allow to determine a great variety of parameters such as crude protein, ammonia and fatty acids.

If you choose our IR+ infrared analysis option, you get the most detailed description of your forage: 

  • NDF digestibility to properly assess your forage
  • Starch digestibility to better characterize your corn silage
  • Silage fermentation profile to evaluate the quality of your silage

With your forage analysis results, you can adapt your silage methods and the ration compositions of your dairy cows to increase milk production. Our advisors can help you interpret your results.

The accuracy of our results is demonstrated several times a year by our participation to the proficiency tests organized by the National Forage Testing Association.​
