  • Minerals

  • Additives

  • With every bite, the cows will eat a nutrient balanced ration.

  • Cows will eat a fixed amount of forages and concentrate for high production and ood health.

  • TMR decreases risk of digestive upset and stabilizes rumen pH.

  • TMR mixers can help to reduce labour cost.

  • Feeding TMR that is well balanced for your herd can increase milk production of 1 - 2.5kg per cow daily.

  • It is much easier to measure daily feed intake.

  • This information will help you to calculate and balance the ration to avoid wasting any feed.
