Innovation through customisation
WHAT IS CUSTOMIZER?
Customizer is an innovative, powerful computer program from Agvance that enables vets and animal nutritionists to formulate custom mineral and vitamin blends and premixes, specific to a customer’s herd requirements. In the past, blood and liver biopsy results have been supplied to farmers with simple recommendations to supplement the elements found deficient, without any professional advice on what type of element or which product would be most suitable. Customizer takes this guesswork out of animal nutrition by allowing qualified people to quickly and easily formulate comprehensive nutrient formulations specific to any situation. Reports are also generated giving detailed information on each element used so that the farmer knows why each mineral is being recommended and how it will benefit their animals.
Once a blend is confirmed and been approved by all parties, each formulation is blended and bagged. Bags are well labelled indicating ingredients, daily dose rate and other relevant information.
