TMR feedmanagement: Fred

May we introduce you to Fred? Fred stands for  Feed REgistration Dairy farms”.  Fred is the software solution for the feedmanagement on a dairy farm, with which the stocks of all ingredients are entered and kept up to date. This results in a good overview of the quantities of the feed at your farm. In other words; Fred ensures that you can manage your feed and therefore your results in milk and yields.

Precise and accurate feeding with an app

Step by step feeding with you mobile phone or tablet in the tractor. The app is connected to the weighing device of the feed mixer, so that you know exactly how much you need of a certain ingredient and the quantity of how much you ultimately have fed is kept up to date. This way you can feed your rations without any notes and your results will be tracked immediately and you will have insight into everything. 

All results are automatically visible

When all cows are fed, all data is automatically synchronized with the web portal. Results are immediately visible. 

 

    1. Has the process been implemented carefully? 
    2. Which ingredients are good, used too much or too little?
    3. Are all the rations made? Which quantities, totals, but also dry matter per cow, per group.
    When the milk data is available, via Uniform Agri, EDI or otherwise, the feed efficiency is also visible. And this makes the circle complete. 

Reports

The reports can be shown in either a graph or a table. Set to your own preference.

Here you can see at a glance the quantities (total and per cow), accuracy, summaries, dry matter per cow, residual feed reporting and feed efficiency.

How does Fred work?

LOADING

When you load the ingredients into the feed mixer, the app on your mobile phone helps. On the screen the amount of the feeding ingredient that needs to be loaded can be seen.

FEEDING

While feeding the cows, the app shows the same process; the whole feeding process is followed and registered until the feeding is done. Dairy Applications fills in all the details about your barns and feeding groups, you fill in your recipes on a personal and secured website. This can be updated from every computer that is connected to the internet. After that, the recepices are automaticcaly enterd in your feedmanagement app on your Android or Apple device. And that’s it!

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT AND EFFICIENT FEEDING

If you have a weighbridge, the TMR system can register all feed components that you have purchased or harvested. This allows you to compare the bill of your suppliers with actually supplied feed, but also to update all stock positions so that you have insight into the current stock of all ingredients. It is also possible to measure how accurately your feeders work, this can be useful if several people load the feed mixer.

REPORTS

You can determine yourself how you will receive the feed reports; automatically by email and / or on the personal webpage. We support clear reports; the most important data is in easy charts in a management dashboard. It is not necessary to read extensive reports, of course you can view all underlying data for further analysis. We can add extra data to the system; such as the milk data. With your consent we read the milk data from the milk factory and we combine this with the feed data. We can then determine the feed efficiency, including all relevant milk data. So easy? Yes, our job is to support your farm with intelligent software. You can share all recorded information and reports with your advisors or staff members. This allows your feed advisor, for example, to advise you even better about optimization of rations. Spend less time on administration, increase your milk production and keep it simple. Fred does the work for you!

The founder

Edwin van Ens, a Friesian from Drenthe, the Netherlands, with a lot of family members and friends in the dairy sector. He has a technical background and  extensive management experience in the social sector. During his holidays with family in the United States, he discovered that the feeding proces on dairy farms had become an outdated proces and that something must be done.

That is why he came up with the idea of develop a system, that helps the farmer with this proces by software support and the efficient and better weighing of the feed-mix and the feed costs in relation to the final milk yield. And so arose Fred…

Edwin is convinced that de software should help the farmer (and not the other way around). So, simplicity, easy to use and clear reports needed to be key. This results in a happy farmer, who is able to make the right choices for his farm, with a little help from Fred!
