- Beef Rumen Audit
- Dairy Rumen Audit
Agri-Lloyd rumen audits analyse rumen stability (digestive health) and can provide an insight into feed efficiency. Rumen efficiency is critical for feed conversion to energy to support milk production and live weight gain.
The audit will be performed by our team and involves evaluating the animals’ general appearance and behaviour and then taking representative samples of manure. We then wash the manure through on farm and examine the samples for key indicators of digestive health such as undigested grains and long fibres.
Our services are all provided by our network of Independent Agents and Dairy Specialists who will visit your farm to conduct the audit. Once your samples are received by our Research and Development team, we will have your reports sent to you within 48 working hours, or 24 working hours for our pre-cut grass service.
*A fee may apply. Audits are free for customers with a spend over €1000 over the previous 2 years.
