Unlock the insights behind your herd’s milk fat production
A cow’s rumen function and overall health influences the amount of milk fat she produces. With RumINSIGHT, measure and monitor changes in rumen function, nutrition and management while protecting your bottom line.
Collecting fatty acids was a complex process
SO, WE MADE IT SIMPLE.
Historically, analyzing the fatty acid composition of milk has been a time-consuming laboratory process. So, we took matters into our own hands. With the help of industry partners and university allies, we’ve developed a way to collect fatty acid profiles easily and cost-effectively at an individual cow and herd level – the first insight of its kind in the US.
Individual cow sample analysis allows you and your management team to look beyond the bulk tank, analyzing multiple factors of milk production to make more impactful changes on an individual, pen and herd level.
So far, over 5 million samples have been analyzed across 1,700 herds to develop benchmark metrics, allowing you to track your performance against herds of like size and management style.
MILK SAMPLES ARE COLLECTED AND ANALYZED
ON YOUR MONTHLY TEST DATE.
Individual fatty acid data points are layered in a variety of ways for more precise nutrition and cow management decisions.
By compiling data on a herd level, you’ll be able to examine historical trends within your herd, and compare your herd’s performance to other herds within our database.
Gain insight into how growing first lactation animals are performing compared to the most productive animals in the herd – the mature third and greater lacation animals.
Or Days in Milk (DIM) can give perspective at crucial times in the cow’s life, allowing you and your nutritionist to better answer questions around fresh cow performance and lactation starts, as well as how pre-dry off cows are being set up to perform in subsequent lactations.
The most valuable data can be found when analyzing pen performance – giving you the power to fine-tune individual rations based on pen/group population and results. Pen and group data allows for more informed feed trials of feed additives and ration changes when utilizing with a comparison group.
