Dairy Application on tour ….

We are on our way …..

June 2017

It has been a while when we have sent our last newsletter, so we would like to give you a short update.

From May 11-18 we made a business trip to the United States, we visited farmers and advisors in South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, and Virginia. The goal was to meet our customers, pilot farmers and a couple of new clients. We had good meetings with dairy farmers and nutritionists who use our product and gave valuable feedback.

TMR Feeding Dairy Applications

Let’s be clear….
We have experience in what we do, but we are new in the market. We use new and more modern technology, we have a subscription model which limits initial investments, and our goal is to support you to grow your business efficiently by giving more insight in the feeding process. We learn a lot from our clients and test farmers and are constantly looking for improvements in our system.

That’s why….
We started to initiate a new release with our development team.
The handling of the leftovers will be more flexible on request of the farmers using the system. In the app, you can weight leftovers when you collect them, but it will soon also be possible to estimate the weight of the leftovers when you are using them to feed to another feed group.
We will build new reports to have more insight into the cost of feeding per group, ingredient and the total herd.
We are improving the feed reports based on the feedback, making sure that you can use them to steer the feeding process and to manage your feeders.

We are on our way …..
We like to stay in contact with all kinds of tools like mobile phones/internet/social media, but also personal. In July we will visit the US again; from October 3-7 you are welcome at our booth 4431 on the Dairy Expo te Madison. We will be there for our 3rd year; the time is flying.

We can connect you!
Last but not least, we can always welcome new customers. So when you are interested in using our TMR feed management system, just let us now.

Thanks for subscribing our newsletter.

We keep you posted.

The best TMR Feed Management solution for dairy farmers!

From October 4-8 we have exhibited at the World Dairy Expo in Madison to show the Dairy Applications TMR Feed Management application. This year we had many visitors from next year and a lot of new visitors. We were able to show the almost finished application at the expo and had very enthusiastic reactions from farmers and suppliers.

During the Expo, we gave over a hundred demo’s showing the web-portal, which is the heart of the system to manage your farm and the Dairy Applications TMR App which is used to manage the feeding process in the barns when mixing the rations for the cows.

The highlights of our feed management system which we showed at the expo are below.

Web-portal:

  • Manage your feeding process, ration recipes online from the cloud everywhere;
  • Steer your feeding process and get the right management information;
  • Import the milk data to link with the feeding data to calculate the feed efficiency;
  • Import the cows and pen/section numbers from the cow management system to manage the feeding with the current cow location;
  • Manage the users and share information with advisors and nutritionists;
  • Great management information to manage the feeding cycle and link feeding to the milk results.

This screen shot is in English, but the Dutch language is available and Spanish is coming soon.

Dairy Applications wins test at Rabobank UX center!

We are proud that we have won the competition for a testing day at the Rabobank UX center (user experience center) at the Rabobank headquarters in Utrecht.

We will be able to test our Dairy Applications TMR feed management applications with large Dutch dairy farmers using the experience of the Rabobank UX center interaction specialists. This will help us a lot to build an even better TMR feed management solution.

Rabobank UX Center Utrecht Holland

For more information see: News (in Dutch) on the Rabobank website.

UX_500

Last Tuesday we had a meeting with the Rabobank UX center experts to decide what would be the most beneficial to test. We will focus on the user experience and reporting when the dairy farmers are using our web portal dashboard to control the TMR  feeding process on the farm and to see if we can improve on reporting and user friendly ness or our solution. The user experience tests will able us to have a much better insight on how a dairy farmer interact with our solution and due to eye tracking technology you could see if the information and buttons are on a logical place on the screens. As a part of the research the user experience experts will interview the dairy farmers to be able to give us valuable feedback to improve our software and more important to improve the user experience.

At the moment we are preparing for the World Dairy Expo in Madison USA booth EH 4431 please feel free to visit us there and experience our application by yourself. You can e-mail us at [email protected] to setup an appointment or just visit our booth.

The actual tests in the Rabobank UX center will be end of this year. We will keep you updated and hope to see you in the meantime in Madison.

New Development Team

The last few months were a challenge for us at the Dairy Applications headquarters in Garyp. Our development team was not delivering the solutions up to our standards. So we had to make a tough decision to change the whole development team. Which you can imagine is quit a challenge.

We believe that this decision is the right one to move forward and to make sure that we will have a fantastic TMR feed management solution to support the dairy farmer in managing and improving their rations. It is all about ‘More Milk Less Costs‘.

The new team will start next week and we will be ready to give a demo at the 50th World Dairy Expo in Madison from October 4-8, 2016.

We will see you in Madison!

Update – first release

Update – first release

Happy Christmas

We hope you have a good time with family and friends.

We have good news. We passed the first phase of the deployment of the application. The first services are kicking and alive. That means that in the following weeks the other services will be implemented.

Why is this good news? The Feed Management Applications is a program which is running online. The art of the development is that when you start the application, all services will communicate with each other and gives you the right information on the screen. With the first services we see that it possible to give every user is own environment for the Feed Management on his farm. The possibilities are endless, but in our first release we are focusing on Feed management.All the users and security functionalities are already running, so we looking forward to the other services.

In January we will connect our first users, for now we can enjoy Christmas with our families. We like to give you a next update in the beginning of January.

With regards,

Edwin and Onno

Feed efficiency underestimated by dairy farmers.

An interesting article in Dutch regarding the feed efficiency based on research of the magazine Boerderij. Dairy farmers underestimate the loss per cow. Most estimate that they loose € 51 per cow but in reality they loose approximately € 216 per cow. The Dairy Applications solution can help you to measure and improve the feed efficiency. For a Dairy Farm with approx. 500 cows this can help de Dairy Farmer save over € 100.000 or $ 120,000 on a yearly basis. That is what we call a saving!
