Cargill has launched a new tool for poultry farmers to help turn nutritional and production data into valuable insights that can help them have a real impact on their profits.
TechBro Flex is a new software tool that allows farmers to simulate future feeding and production management strategies to understand their impact on profits. Cargill said in pilot trials, farmers saw on average 3.5 percent margin improvement by optimising poultry production costs.
“Consumer demands, unstable raw material prices, evolving supply and demand for poultry meat and constant changes in regulation around broiler production have made it difficult for our broiler producers to consistently sustain profits, said Mario Penz, global strategic broiler account director, Cargill Animal Nutrition. “As a result, it is important for producers to combine both their nutritional and production data to optimize their broiler production costs.”
Using TechBro Flex, Cargill poultry advisors work with broiler producers to understand their performance goals, design feeding programs and develop production management strategies to improve their poultry farm operations.
TechBro Flex is built on predictive technology that develops broiler production scenarios based on customers’ nutritional and production data and Cargill’s proprietary nutritional system, supported by vast global poultry research. As a result, producers are able to optimise within production constraints, mitigate sudden cost and revenue risks and go beyond nutrition to maximise profit.
