Mix Quality

Cattle farmers are generally very concerned about balanced rations, as without the right nutritional elements, cows develop health issues and their performance goes down. That means higher costs and lower returns. Therefore, it's vital that the cows consume all feed components in the correct proportions. This is only possible if the feed is mixed well. Otherwise the cows will only eat the tastiest parts, ignoring the most important components. So, good mixing quality is extremely important for all (dairy) cattle farmers.
