Each day, InTouch manages the feeding of over 300,000 animals on 2,000 farms across the globe, representing one of the world’s largest feed efficiency databases.

As well as helping to support dairy and beef farmers in the overall management of their herd, InTouch can quickly measure and communicate a number of key performance indicators (KPIs).

“Utilizing modern technology and animal nutrition experts, InTouch helps to take the guesswork out of managing your feeding and all-round herd performance. Correct diet formulation is only as good as the mix that is delivered to the animals, and a consistent diet is key to achieving production goals. By proactively helping farmers in all areas of their business, from ration formulation to grassland management, we aim to ensure animals have the best opportunity to deliver optimum results every day.”

“InTouch is a very simple system to use; I’ve saved a lot of time and I’ve saved a lot of mistakes. We’re not worried “are we feeding right” or “are we feeding wrong.” The nutritionist is always keeping a close eye on things.”

(John Killen, Dairy Farmer, Northern Ireland)
