Forage Analysis

Wet and dry forages are a prime feed resource for any lifestock operation. To know the exact nutritional values is essential for animal wellbeing and productivity.

Fourier Transform Near Infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) provides a fast and effective solution for analyzing wet and dry forage. The sample is simply filled in cups and can be analyzed non-destructively on the TANGO or MPA II in seconds, saving costs by reducing time and reagent use.

Bruker Optics comprehensive calibration packages for feed and ingredients are developed following the ISO 12099 guideline.

Also available is a comprehensive database of Feed and Ingredients calibrations.

FT-NIR spectroscopy offers a rapid, accurate and non-destructive tool for the analysis of:

  • Dry Matter
  • Ash
  • Protein
  • Ammonia
  • Fat
  • pH
  • Lactic Acid
  • Volatile Fatty Acids
  • and various other parameters.
