NZ IFM Laboratory Opens

Alltech IFM Laboratory

Alltech NZ opens a brand new IFM laboratory at our premises in West Auckland.

What is IFM, In vitro Fermentation Model, from Alltech?

It is a support tool for nutritionists to evaluate and troubleshoot dairy rations to maximise feed efficiency and combat ever-rising feed costs.  Dual pool mathematical models are used to evaluate digestion kinetics of the carbohydrate fractions present in the feed.  This process also involves a complete proximate analysis of the sample submitted.

Why IFM?

We’ve taken the drop, so you don’t have to!
