Lifestart Sets Life Performance

We continue to help producers invest in future performance through optimised nutrition of young calves in the early stages of their life, which has a significant impact on future productivity. Trouw Nutrition communicates this through the concept 'Life Start sets Life Performance.' Providing young animals with significantly higher levels of milk replacer than in conventional diets leads to healthier animals and faster growth.

Masterlab NIR

NIRS stands for Near Infra Red Spectroscopy. This technique is an alternative in analysing samples for chemical substances like proteins, liquids, fat, starch, cellulose, carbohydrate, glucose and ashes. Within several minutes the test results are complete which offers customers the possibility to alter their production process or swiftly release production batches for delivery. The costs of this analysis are relatively low. Fingerprinting is one of the new areas of NIR.

MasterLab has over 25 years of experience using NIRS. We develop and sell solid calibrations needed to work with NIRS. We can also take care of yearly maintenance and updates.
