Using the Feeding Control tool in the NorFor Software will show if the plan needs readjustments or if the feeding management is causing the problem. NorFor’s Feeding Control tool gives the possibility to monitor more than 100 ration parameters and more than 50 key figures, making it an excellent tool for troubleshooting.
I recommend using NorFor’s Feeding Control tool minimum 2-3 weeks after changes in feed plan, and after that, at least once a month. If you have NorFor Feed Ration Optimizer on farm basis you can do it as often as needed to control.
Regular use of the Feeding Control allows the comparison of the results to budget. It is essential to adjust the budget if milk and feed prices are changing. Also, many financial creditors in Scandinavia demand monthly Feed Control and results from the monthly officially milk yield control.
If you are interested to know more about the Feeding Control Tool I recommend to visit NorFor’s Annual Advisory Workshop (held on the 20th and 21st September in Wageningen, The Netherlands) where this topic will be discussed intensively.
