What we do
Our customer base includes livestock nutritionists, crop researchers, veterinarians, feed manufacturers, dairy farmers and virtually all other types of agricultural producers. In whatever way they are involved in the forage or feedstuff area, we strive to provide our customers with highly reliable feed testing and laboratory analysis services. To that effect, Agri-Analyse agricultural testing laboratories are renowned for accuracy, fast turnaround of test results as well as a highly personal service. Whether you're a farmer testing haylage or a mineral manufacturer testing large quantities of feedstuffs, our agricultural testing laboratories want your business. We guarantee you cannot find a better combination of speed, price and courtesy when it comes to the forage and feed testing industry. To better serve the ever-growing needs of our customers, Agri-Analyse recently invested in an ultra-modern near infra-red (NIR) spectrophotometer. We spent the early part of 1999 building and testing the accompanying computer software models and equations, working with an international team of experts in both the agricultural and computer software fields. Summer saw us in the testing phase and we ran simultaneous systems until the new equipment was fully operational in October.
The new fully modernized spectrophotometer permits us to continue to offer SAME DAY analysis reports on a broader range of forages and grains than was previously available. In fact, few labs have their technology refined to this level; and by upgrading the number of parameters we now test, you have the option of obtaining much more specialized data within a faster time frame. It's important to test what you're feeding WHILE you're feeding it. Did you know that a one week delay in receiving your test results can end up costing you $1000 or more in lost milk production (based on a 40 cow herd). And while speed is critical to accurate results, our upgraded NIR machine (new NIR: NDFD 240, 120, 30 and 24 hrs, ash, fat, starch, sugar and Fermentation profile. ) further increases accuracy via the extra equations we've added to allow for a wider range of results.
Our latest instrument instantly measures moisture, crude/available/soluble proteins, energy, ADF, NDF, lignin, calcium, phosphorous, potassium and magnesium. As well, we've calibrated our instrument to predict energy values for cattle using the most scientifically advanced formulae presently available.
In the near future, we will be offering more types of tests on different feedstuffs - depending on customer demand, and of course technical feasability. As well as constantly monitoring new industry developments. Our primary goal is to continue offering timely, accurate analysis results to our customers using the most advanced techniques available.
Unlimited number of tests available upon request. Taxes not included. The prices of this list are subject to change without notice. * For options, a complete package must be purchased or a handling fee of $12.00 will apply.
