Using Software to Effectively Manage Feed Production

Published by: Amy Doherty on: 21/08/18

Production is the core of your feed business. If for any reason something should go wrong and production had to stop, this could have major repercussions for your business. Events such as machinery breaking down, or not having the right ingredients for the feed recipe (or a suitable alternative) can result in production being paused. This can in turn lead to unhappy customers and potential losses in revenue.

For this reason, it is vital to have high-performance software that helps you to effectively manage production, so your business runs smoothly at all times. Primetics Gold Feed software is designed to support optimised mill management throughout the whole production process.

Tracking and Traceability

One of the first fundamentals for successful production management is always having a clear overview of what is happening along each part of the production process. A detailed tracking system is key here, for displaying for stock levels, pending deliveries, delivery dates, and more. Gold Feed enables you to track all of this information in real time and manage the processes in your mill in an end-to-end solution.

Centralised Management of All Processes

An efficient workflow system allows you to view and manage all of your production processes in one place and see any potential issues well in advance. In Gold Feed you can quickly and easily confirm and trigger orders, as well as monitoring and managing nutrition levels, production, labelling, shipping and more.

As all mill managers will be aware, production has to keep going at all times, or the competition will gain the edge. Not to mention the fact that if production stops then so does your cash flow. With Gold Feed’s visibility and control over all production elements, you can keep interruptions to production to a minimum.

Manage Chemical Compliance

Another important aspect of feed production is of course the correct make-up of the feed, as well as its compliance with legal and industry requirements. These requirements are constantly evolving and becoming more stringent. This means that software functionality that allows you to manage and prove chemical compliance and the fulfilment of food safety criteria is essential. With the ability to record and view all information in one place, including the results of cross-contamination checks, Gold Feed provides you with this functionality. The software also enables you to work together with your growers and consultants to evidence your compliance.
