Better for the farmers
Although it has its high points – joyous moments where everything comes together in the form of a calf’s first steps or a truly spectacular harvest – farming is all too often a hard and thankless way of life. The long hours, unpredictable weather patterns and other unforeseen pitfalls are tough, and farmers need tenacity, motivation, resilience, hope, courage and an abundance of good humour in order to make it through. Having been founded by two farmers, the Hennessy brothers, TERRA NutriTECH understands this and their goal is to assist farmers to address specific nutritional problems while improving their way of working with products that accurately deliver vital supplements, eliminate waste and reduce manual labour etc. All of these benefits lead to the ultimate goals of achieving improved herd health and higher farm profitability.
Innovation makes up the very core of TERRA NutriTECH’s ethos, and they are constantly finding new ways to develop processes with plug & play technology based on ongoing customer feedback. In this way, they further help their clients to reduce costs, have healthier animals and save more time. They are proud to invest time and money into research, a state-of-the-art manufacturing site and data that utilises the latest technology. Terra NutriTECH has brought this technology to its OPIS mineral dosing system. These IoT sensors communicate with our automated mineral dosing controller and use this data to accurately dose the required minerals into the water system for the herd. These sensors also send this data to the cloud.
Better for the animals
The importance of nutritional balance for any livestock diet cannot be underestimated. Growth rates, reproductive efficiency and immune system function all rely on good nutrition for best performance. Poor trace element levels can have a huge negative impact on the coming season’s production, ‘in calf’ rate, growth rate and general health; it doesn’t matter how much meal is given to a cow, it is almost certain she will underperform if she is mineral deficient. This technology is also becoming increasingly important for applications in the Poultry and Swine industries.
Minerals and vitamin supplementation are essential to all animals, this is an area farmers should invest in. Deficiencies on-farm will affect the health and reproductive ability of livestock. Any dietary issue that impacts an animal will also impact on profitability. It is therefore essential that all aspects of an animals health are considered and rectified immediately so that optimal production is achieved.
TERRA NutriTECH has quickly become one of the world leaders in agricultural technology and nutritional specialists since the company’s birth in 2012.
