Cows and other ruminants have some kind of superpower as they are able to turn hard, inedible cellulose fibers into milk and meat. To help them to make this conversion as efficient as possible we have to provide them all the nutrients and a balanced diet.
Every single animal has its own needs and the optimal diet for it depends on age, gender, species, genetic factors, and the environment. When we calculate the feeding plan we have to take into account all the mentioned parameters and nutrient content in the fodder, which makes the diet calculations rather complicated.
PANTHEON Farming brings farmers a fodder calculator
To avoid tedious calculations, Datalab developed a fodder calculation module, which provides a simple solution for calculating the diet of dairy cows and meat cattle as well as pigs. All basic parameters for the calculations may be downloaded from Datalab’s server and amended if needed.
