Your feed efficiency is strongly linked to the farm management. That is why Wisium offers you specific technical support on farm and performance monitoring in order to ensure you and your clients the best economic results at the end.
Farm management is a key part of success
Good nutrition and proper farm management go hand in hand – you simply cannot have one without the other. Because feed efficiency is strongly linked to farm management and correct conditions for animal health, Wisium offers you specific technical support on farm and performance monitoring to ensure the best economic result for your operation. In nearly every case, a well-managed farm that implements a good animal nutrition program will be a successful and a profitable operation.
Components of farm management
Wisium’s farm management program consists of several steps, including observation and assessment, identification of issues, solution implementation, and follow up with technical support.
In a farm management scenario, Wisium experts first conduct an analysis of the objectives and target of the farm. They focus on issues such as technical performance, economical dashboard, genetics. They also carry out on-site visits to identify any immediate problems (nutrition management, metabolic diseases, buildings, environmental conditions, ventilation, equipment, etc.) and related risks.
Farm management protocols in the Wisium program also include assessing the sanitation and hygiene status of the farm and making sure that conditions are correct to foster and encourage growth, performance and production. Experts take care of the sanitary and hygiene conditions of the farm, and offer you a powerful litter conditioner for animals and their own facilities, especially indicated for young animals such as piglets, day-old-chicks and calves. Because the first hours of life are essential but also a critical period for young animals, Wisium developed the PURlite solution.
As nutrition expertise is not enough to ensure the best performance and economic results to our customers, we are on the field with farmers to provide specific technical support and monitor their performance.
We identify any husbandry issues
Young animals’ conditions on farms are especially critical and are evaluated based on unique criteria. Based on observations made on the farm, Wisium has developed unique solutions that directly address regularly observed issues. One such development is PURlite, a powerful litter conditioner for animals to help ensure the right environment, especially indicated for young animals such as piglets, day-old-chicks and calves. This is just one example of how Wisium takes farm management to a new level of problem-solving.
Wisium experts first conduct an analysis of the target market, focusing on issues such as maturity, genetics, price and average performance. They also carry out on-site visits to identify any problematics (buildings, environmental conditions, ventilation, equipment etc.) and related risks. Any problems are identified and addressed while taking into account market requirements. Wisium operates using special analysis tools which comprise performance indicators and quality criteria.
We define areas of improvement
As a next step, we determine areas for improvement according to your needs in nutritional and farm management, and consider not just your farm environment, but also the market conditions.
We provide technical husbandry support
Wisium experts provide a technical support on farm with general issues, as well as very specific problems based on the pre-defined areas for improvement. Then, an action plan is implemented over a particular period in order to achieve the desired targets.
Many factors in farm management require first hand observation, assessment, and solution implementation. That is why we do not only make suggestions from behind a desk hundreds of miles away. Instead, our experts are on the field with farmers, working side by side to provide a tailor-made technical support and monitor performance. This hands-on approach, in addition to our solutions in the animal nutrition areas, helps to ensure the best performance and economic results to our customers.
When good animal nutrition programs and proper farm management coexist, the result is healthy animals, satisfied producers, and a positive bottom line.
