PNE gives buyers and purchasing groups the ability to verify that what they are receiving is what they are paying for, and also check where the best value can be found.
“If you look at the purchasing side of the equation, an integrator may have a number of suppliers to choose from. If a buyer is evaluating three distiller suppliers, the buyer has the option of ranking them according to how much digestible lysine is in each product. In addition, the amount of phosphorus and/or AME from different soybean meal suppliers can be a criterion by which to rank soybean meal suppliers. At this point, buyers can start to rank the value of each supplier’s product based on what they traditionally deliver,” Shirley remarked
Precision is necessary in any science, and agriculture is a science that bases its productive output on cause-and-effect principles. In the case of swine and poultry production, knowing the nutritional makeup of feed ingredients is critical to formulating feeds that provide the correct nutrients, at the right levels. Nutritionists, livestock producers and feed manufacturers that use Adisseo’s PNE platform have more control over nutritional decisions for their livestock, create better business opportunities on ingredient selection and purchases, and provide a better match between nutrition and production in terms of higher feed quality, more efficient production and better profitability.
