A laptop to round up your herd... or the set of cards in your hands and the computer in your office to record the results.
Following observation of the herd and recording of nutritional symptoms, the software assesses surpluses or deficiencies for the seven parameters related to energy, protein, fibres and rumen stability. You build your interpretation about the feeding based on this OBSALIM diagnosis and production measured, fodder used and the feeding distribution practised. The results and your comments can then be printed out
- Refinement by period or time limit: retrospective examination of the herd's nutritional condition to facilitate analysis and links with any dietary changes.
- Refinement by groups of animals in the herd.
- Refinement by representation rate of the symptoms observed.
Feed intake enhancement
You can conduct an energy assessment of the herd's feed intake through the permissible theoretical milk yield. This assessment is linked with the 7 parameters of the Obsalim diagnosis and the difference with actual production to determine technical or economic changes in margins.
Understanding nutritional observations
Each nutritional observation is presented and analysed using standard data sheets. Numerous photos are used to illustrate them. You can edit customised observation tables to facilitate observation recording or your understanding of how the system works.
Support - training courses
OBSALIM offers various levels of support for the Obsalim method and software in terms of nutritional advice, diagnosis or feed intake adjustment. Specific training courses are conducted by the EIG Zone Verte.
