Optimal use of feed
GRANOVIT AG stands for pet food of the highest Swiss quality. Sustainable feed production and healthy animals are their biggest commitments. From the cultivation of raw materials to production and feeding with over 90 years of experience in animal nutrition. Granovit is one of the largest independent feed producers in Switzerland and produces close to customers at three locations. Thereby the raw materials are free of genetically modified organisms.
Successful large-scale fattening relies on healthy and optimal rearing of young animals in the barn. Once the foundation for vital cattle has been laid, nothing stands in the way of successful, sustainable fattening. So that a reliable slaughter forecast with the optimal feed use can be determined, the farm is visited with a mobile scale at set periods for fattening performance and weight control . In this process, the animals are weighed and assessed individually. Until now, this required manual recording of the animal data on paper with corresponding post-processing. Likewise, the delivery of the reports to the customers with the recommendations was done manually.
By digitizing the weighing process in conjunction with the set of rules for determining optimal slaughter forecasts customers receive an overview of their livestock with the respective weight gains, slaughter dates and feed recommendations. The administrative effort for weighing animals has been reduced, while at the same time customers retain an overview of their livestock at all times via a customer portal with corresponding reporting. This enables Granovit to provide the feed in an optimally coordinated manner and the customer gets more planning security for achieving the desired meat quality.
The use of iDIP enables easier yet faster weight recording of an animal via the weighing system. The app is used to enter the TVD number (4 digits), the valuation and the weight. With this information, statements can be made about the weight trend and the optimal slaughter forecast for each animal via reporting This allows the use of feed as well as the slaughter time to be planned more precisely and reliably.
