Trioliet Solomix 1 VLH

Trioliet Solomix 1 VLH

Trioliet upgraded the single-auger TMR mixer range, the Solomix 1 VLH New Edition. The Solomix 1 VLH-S, for instance, has some improved features like a wide discharge chain conveyor of at least 34 inches and an in-height adjustable chain extension to easily feed into bunks. That very wide chain conveyor ensures a quick and continuous discharge of the perfectly mixed ration. Like the double- and triple-auger mixers, the Solomix 1 is available with different kinds of discharge units, like a conveyor belt, conveyor chain and a curved conveyor chain. Now these machines are standard equipped with twin stream augers (7/8-inch flighting/ 1-inch wings) giving quick mixing and discharging conditions. This in combination with the strong drive line makes it a machine built to last.

Feed and Nutrition

Form-A-Feed launches MultePli

New from Form-A-Feed, MultePli is a special combination of rumen-active enzymes developed to enhance microbial protein production via fiber and starch digestibility of forages and grains. Proprietary enzymes work directly on the breakdown of fiber (ADF and NDF portions). This increases microbial attachment for further digestion and better feed utilization. It also increases starch availability for rapid energy release and microbial growth. Field demonstrations of MultePli found that milk protein yield was significantly higher and fecal starch was lower. MultePli improved fiber and starch apparent digestibility, which can ultimately increase farm profitability, especially during times of high commodity prices.

InGrained from Tracer Minerals

InGrained from Tracer Minerals

InGrained is a uniquely designed liquid foliar fertilizer to provide bioavailable nutrients directly to your crops. Tracer Minerals formulated InGrained with extensive review of the biochemical pathways within plants with a focus on alternative absorption and utilization routes within the system. This foliar-applied product is stable and electro-neutral, giving the advantage of being nonreactive in a tank mix with several well-known products and still be absorbed more effectively and efficiently into the plant. This product is applied at relatively low volumes with big plant impacts that can be measured by yield and nutrient content. This product has been tested in a wide variety of crops, farming practices and locations. Maybe it is time to think differently about nutrition.

EvoNIR from Dinamica Generale

EvoNIR from Dinamica Generale

EvoNIR on tank is an innovative solution introduced by Dinamica Generale consisting of a NIR analyzer installed on the tub of the TMR mixer. The analyzer connected to the scale DG8000IC and consequentially to DTM Core, cloud feeding management software, allows for:

  • Real-time adjustment: The comprehensive system analyzes the quality and recalculates the quantity to be loaded of each component based on the actual value of the dry matter content.

  • H2O adjustment: After loading the last component of the recipe, the TMR can be analyzed. Based on the real-time analysis, the system calculates how many gallons of water must be loaded to reach the TMR’s target dry matter.

  • TMR homogeneity: Constant monitoring of the TMR homogeneity during mixing. The system alerts operators once the target homogeneity has been reached.

Bovacillus

Chr. Hansen, a leading 146-year-old global bioscience company, is introducing a new product, Bovacillus. Consisting of two strains of different species of Bacilli – Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis – Bovacillus is a special type of probiotic. Bacillus spores can survive harsh conditions within the gastrointestinal tract, such as pH variations, bile salts and enzymes. Following germination of the spores, active organisms support the normal functions within the tract as well as a balanced microbiome.

Both strains of Bacilli were selected based on their capacity to produce high quantities of digestive enzymes. Bacillus organisms have been used as probiotics for farm animals for several years, where they have supported normal performance and health. We’re excited to introduce this new product, which is thoroughly documented in a large number of studies.

The resilience and versatility of Bovacillus allows this effective probiotic to be used in a broad array of applications for cattle.
