Here are a few we’d recommend:

NIRS – Forages

$18.00 USD

This is a popular test with our livestock producers! NIRS testing for your forages is an economical option for determining critical information about your feed with a quick turnaround time. Results can be obtained in minutes at half the cost of the equivalent wet chemistry test! 

This analysis measures the following:

  • Moisture
  • Dry matter
  • Crude protein
  • Acid detergent fiber (ADF) & amylase treated neutral detergent fiber (aNDF)
  • Calcium
  • Phosphorous
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Ash
  • NDFD48
  • IVTDMD48
  • Fat
  • Lignin
  • Non-fiber carbohydrates (NFC)
  • Starch
  • Ethanol soluble carbohydrates (ESC) & water soluble carbohydrates (WSC)
  • Calculations given for relative feed value (RFV), relative forage quality (RFQ) & beef cattle energy values (TDN, NEm , NEg , NEl)
  • Horse Energy Value: DE (calculated upon request)

F-9. Nitrate Testing

$12.75 USD

When animals (commonly cattle or horses) eat excess quantities of certain common plants, nitrate poisoning can occur. Nitrate poisoning can cause serious illness or even sudden death of the animal. Testing your feed for nitrates can indicate whether nitrate content is at a safe level for your livestock.

F-10. Beef Cattle Rations

$40.25 USD

We’ll test your rations and measure levels of moisture, dry matter, ADF, crude protein, fat and other critical components. If your results show that your feed isn’t supporting optimal animal health, we can help you formulate the correct feed for your livestock.
