  Customized diets formulations:

A customized diet is formulated to accommodate the client’s unique production systems and the available raw materials to enable the animals to unlock their genetic potential.

 The Lavendula Nutritional team is able to formulate custom diets for a specific farm, based on the following:

  • Raw materials availability, cost and quality
  • Specific needs of the different species, breeds and production levels of the animals
  • The environmental and housing aspects are also taken into consideration
  • Not just looking at cost formulations but formulating cost efficient diets, which ensures that the animals produce as close to their genetic potential as possible and efficiently.
  • Efficiency on the farm is a closely intertwined circle between nutrition, management, genetics and health.
  • When the right balance of the above is achieved, the system runs as a “well oiled machine”.
