Bio-Ag has a variety of services which complement the products we supply. We currently provide free nutritional consulting for established customers and fee-based consultation for others. We partner with a local laboratory to provide detailed feed analysis. This allows us to customize your premixes to fit your specific needs. We welcome your questions; please feel free to contact us for further information.
In addition to our floor stock formulas, we make custom mineral premixes to ensure your livestock are receiving the proper minerals and to save you time! For example, your custom-tailored formula might include the standard 2:1 Dairy Premix as the base, plus Dried Seaweed Meal, Redmond Natural Salt, and extra Magnesium Oxide. By combining these ingredients into one customized product, you can measure one customized product to ensure your livestock receive proper levels of these essential feed supplements.
The combination of ingredients added to your custom mix is determined by balancing your ration. Our standard 5-bag minimum order for custom mixes allows our clients to purchase small quantities of balanced, nutritional packages. A minimal mix fee is added to cover this customization. We require a minimum of three business days' notice to create your personalized product.
For additional information on designing your own custom formula, please refer to our information on ration balancing.
Bio-Ag offers a comprehensive ration balancing service. We send feed-stuffs to a 3rd party laboratory for testing under Bio-Ag's detailed testing requirements.
Our laboratory partner uses wet chemistry testing techniques, proven to be far more detailed than NIR (Near Infra-Red) testing. A minimum of 7 working days is required to receive an analysis report on your feed sample tests.
Based on these analyses, we design well balanced, minimum-cost rations. We focus on maximizing the value of your feed inventory, to limit the number of purchased inputs. Through feed analysis we are able to advise our clients on how to:
Use their own resources efficiently
Properly balance their animal feed rations at the most economical cost
In addition to tests related to ration balancing, our lab partners offer many additional test packages, including toxin screens. Health problems in livestock are often caused by mouldy feeds and their associated toxins. Measures can be taken to counteract toxin effects.
Making premixes custom-tailored to these problems, ensures your livestock receive the best possible nutrition for optimum health and production
