Beef Nutritional Services
AgVenture’s provides professional, customize nutritional services specific to beef operations. We work one-on-one with each farm to listen to your needs and goals, do a feed analysis, then determine the right feed options for your herd.
Nutritionists Who Know The Difference
Our highly respected team of nutritionists understand that the nutritional requirements for beef cattle are different than dairy herds. Both over- and underfeeding a herd can lead to high production costs.
Integrated Balanced Feed Options
AgVenture analyzes your specific feed options and provides recommendations for a balanced nutritional approach. Our integrated approach consists of utilizing crop productions and resource-saving practices to achieve high and sustained production levels.
Key Factors Reviewed
When reviewing your feed program, our goal is to ensure it is cost-effective. We look for ways to reduce costs while maintaining or increasing production. Here are some of the factors that are considered:
- Energy – Energy is the nutrient required by cattle in the greatest amount and usually accounts for the largest proportion of feed costs.
- Protein – Protein is one of the main building blocks of the body.
- Minerals – Various minerals are required for growth, bone formation, reproduction and many other bodily functions.
- Vitamins – Good vitamin balance is essential for growth, reproduction, and maintenance but levels vary widely in hay, silage, and grains.
Combining accurate feed analysis with our knowledge of beef nutritional needs allows us to formulate balanced rations that will meet your production goals economically.
