Free remote Ration Performance Monitoring service now open to all
[STAMFORD, U.K.] - Alltech and KEENAN have announced the launch of a new InTouch service that allows UK dairy and beef farmer to benefit from independent nutritional advice and support, free of charge for the next three months.
Recognising the impact COVID-19 is having on lives and businesses, Alltech and KEENAN hope that this offering will help livestock farmers navigate their way through this challenging time.
“The farming industry is somewhat used to pressure, volatility and uncertainty, and it’s times like these that test and demonstrate our strength, resilience and relentless passion to survive, thrive and feed the population,” said Fergal McAdam, Alltech UK general manager.
“From April 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020, farmers without the InTouch hardware already installed can now benefit from our free, remote, over-the-phone support service.
“This new service has been designed to support farmers by helping measure, monitor and manage the biggest variable cost on-farm, feed,” he added.
“We understand that every farm business experiences its own unique set of challenges, and by allowing dairy and beef farmers remote access to our independent feed specialists they can continue to work towards achieving their business goals, whether that’s improving feed efficiency, reducing health incidences or increasing yields, despite the position we all currently find ourselves in.”
InTouch, in its entirety, combines the latest in feed-management software, mixer wagon controller technology and skilled feeding specialists to work proactively with farmers to optimise feeding accuracy and ultimately drive animal performance.
“Those who wish to access this service but do not currently have InTouch technology installed, can confidentially provide basic input and output information over-the-phone. We can then analyse the information provided and give diet performance data and recommendations based on available feeds,” said McAdam.
“We as a business, like many others, have had to adapt how we continue to support our customers and the broader agricultural industry during this unprecedented time. We are confident that ‘virtual boots on the ground’ service will be of great benefit to farmers and the wider supply chain.
“Whether farms are experiencing a peak in demand or a cut in milk price, it remains as important as ever that we are on-hand to offer independent support, guidance and recommendations to continue to improve animal performance, health and welfare, while driving feed efficiency,” he concluded.
