Says Chris Peck of Marks Farms:

  • “Precision feeding assists us in making consistent rations - it takes the variability out and our milk production has increased”
  • “Adjusting DM on a real-time basis has resulted in using less forage while maintaining the target nutrient ratios, helping lower feed cost” Rumen efficiency is improved, manure is more consistent and herd health is good”
  • “Refusals are easier to manage and we keep refusals in a 1-3% range” “On Marks Farms, the dg precisionFEEDING System had less than a three month payback”
