A large proportion of animal feed orders are made to custom formulas tailored for individual customers. This means livestock animal feed management and formulation professionals need to achieve a balance between the making best use of mill production time and producing precisely the correct nutritional mix for that particular customer, exactly when they need it.
Contracting, purchasing processes and efficient stock control all have critical parts to play in protecting margins and providing the customer with the best possible value.
The costs of production down-time are unacceptably high in the majority of cases, so the identification of the component parts of any feed mix order so that production planners can call off from stock or the purchasing department can procure them needs to happen quickly and accurately. Vast fluctuations in the costs of raw materials make contracting, purchasing processes and efficient stock control critical to protecting margins and providing the customer with the best possible value.
As well as this, there is the inevitable complexity of laws and requirements affecting the industry, especially if feed contains medication and needs to be licensed. Keeping accurate records, as well as details of ingredient traceability, right through to finished feed is key for those working in this field.
Due to the impact that feed could have on the welfare of the customer’s livestock, including cattles, cows, swine, fish and poultry, and in turn on our food chain, investing in the best systems to support the business needs to be top priority for all animal feed managment and producers.
