When you hear the word "audit," you might automatically think of revenue or taxation auditors, but did you know that Alltech runs farm audits to help improve the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of your farm?
We believe the key to unlocking greater profitability in a sustainable fashion is by increasing the efficiency of production. To help farmers reach their targets, Alltech has developed a farm audit, which analyses the key components of a dairy farm. During the audit the on-farm team will use the latest evaluation tools to gather key data on your herd and farm.
The farm audit:
- Assesses on-farm production and economic efficiency
- Evaluates the performance of animals
- Compares current production with established targets
- Analyses nutrition and feed management
- Considers aspects of housing, husbandry and management
- Identifies possible health issues
- Establishes the cause of reduced performance
Once the audit is complete, you will be provided with relevant information and advice, which can help improve your decision making.
Let us do the number crunching for you
Our nutritionists are fully trained in feed formulation using a dedicated formulations programme that allows the comparison of the existing diet to the potential benefits of alternative diets. All diets can be compared nutritionally, by cost and by carbon output of the herd’s diet. This information can then be transferred, along with the basic operating performance indicators of the farm, into the Dairy ASSIST tool. Calculations indicate the degree of cost benefit from the resolved inefficiencies to the farmer with the added bonus of reduced herd carbon footprint, which is great news for the consumer, who is more concerned than ever with how their food is produced.
All of these components are brought together into a comprehensive recommendation for diet, mineral specification, alternative protein sources and, if required, mycotoxin control. Following implementation, the results and performance are regularly monitored by technicians to ensure that the predicted improvements are achieved or bettered.
