MANAGE THE RUMEN
The Agri-Lloyd Rumen Audit helps you understand the health of the rumen function within the herd and optimise your ration to improve production.
Evaluating how well feed is being digested enables you to optimise the ration and identify opportunities for improvement. It can also identify health problems such as sub-acute ruminal acidosis (SARA).
A physical sampling of the manure and analysing key indicators to digestive health will outline the rumen health of the herd.
Those individual on farm audits take a minimum of two hours with ten different manure samples taken allowing us to give detailed suggestions for improvements if required.
This is particularly important when cows transition from a grass-fed diet to a winter ration and vice versa
YOUR AUDIT WILL LOOK FOR KEY INDICATORS INCLUDING …
- General condition of the cows
- Percentage of cows ruminating
- Feed sorting
- Signs of acidosis
- Undigested material
- Mucin casts
