NutriOpt Mycotoxin Adviser

To ensure the safety of the raw feed materials you use or of the final feed you produce, you need to know whether they contain any mycotoxins – and if so which, and in what quantities.
The health risk that mycotoxins hold for different animal species can also vary considerably, affecting the risk of including these raw materials in final feeds.


Why NutriOpt?

It is essential to take effective action within hours. Waiting days or even longer to receive lab analysis results is an expensive choice, as a truckload or silo full of feed materials will not wait. Managing imprecise information can lead to under or over-treatment, resulting in unnecessary high costs or bad feed quality, affecting animal performance.

To resolve this problem, Trouw Nutrition introduces the NutriOpt Mycotoxin Adviser.

Advising for smarter decisions

Customised advice on feed formulation

The Adviser gives instantaneous and fully customised recommendations, based on the outcome of the risk calculation. Such advice can be implemented immediately and indicates whether the formulation should be optimised by adding a mycotoxin binder.

Optimised quality control

The Adviser gives advice on sampling frequency. This advice is based on many real-time samples originating from all devices connected to the central database. Optimisation of the quality control programme can be started without delay.

Improved supplier management

The fact that analysis results are automatically and instantaneously uploaded to the database, making them accessible to everyone involved, makes it possible to reject or separate raw materials directly on receipt. This may result in lower purchasing or production costs, increasing your ROI.
