Agroscope and aikemy Joined Forces
Agroscope and aikemy will build innovative pocket feed labs together, enabling a win-win for animals’ digestion, farmers, and the environment. Pocket feed lab raises the attention of vets, farmers, and feed mills, who could gain the disruptive advantage of taking labs in the farm/field to test feed nutrients’ content in real-time. Feed formulation would be healthier and cost-efficient if the true nutrient content of ingredients were known (precise formulation instead of the current over formulating using table values). Precision feeding can improve animal gut health, cut farmers’ costs (4-6 digits for a large feed mill), and reduce waste Nitrogen by 17% (primary GHG driver). Project funded by Innosuisse.
