Better ingredients can make for high quality feed. With that in mind, a group with Kansas State University and the US Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research service have been working on a device to help grain producers improve grain and feed moisture monitoring.
The effort is part of an ongoing project from the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for the Reduction of Post-Harvest Loss through USAID.
However, moisture levels aren’t the only areas where producers are looking for improvements, there also is interest in improving ways to accuracy and switching between ingredients.
The increasing complexity involved with premix formulations has highlighted needs to improve accuracy, said Rene Smulders, CCO of the Dutch technology manufacturer.
