JBS United and DeKalb Feeds have entered into a joint venture, Central Nutrition Services LLC, focusing on manufacturing livestock feeds and nutritional supplements for both JBS and DeKalb and their customers throughout the Midwest.
The venture takes advantage of an existing Frytown, Iowa, mill facility which DeKalb acquired in September 1996, and which has never been fully utilized. According to Doug Webel, COO of JBS, the mill can be operated more efficiently and cost-effectively by combining the companies' efforts.
The facility also includes a large warehouse space and office space, which will allow the new company to grow and accommodate more production, according to the partners. The mill’s central location is expected to allow JBS to react to customer needs more effectively and efficiently.
Near-record meat prices spur demand for animal feed
extension outreach appointment, Dr. Tom Overton, professor of dairy management
within Cornell University’s College of Agriculture, spends much of his time
working with NY dairies, their nutritionists and vets on issues related to
transition cow management. In his opinion, one of the areas of opportunity for
dairy farms can be found in the management of the pre-calving diet. With
his team, Overton is currently involved in a commercial research study involving
55 farms focused on the influence of particle size on dry cow diets. “We’re
finding that diets are quite sortable with large differences in particle size
distribution,” Overton explains. “[The industry] needs to do a better job in
terms of particle size to make [the rations] less sortable.” In a
total mixed ration, sorting is problematic because cows tend to favor the grain
component and therefor may not consume the necessary fiber and nutrients. In
this video, Overton discusses his team’s research involving pre-calving dairy
diets at the World Dairy Expo. The 2014 edition of
the World Dairy Expo, which was held in early October in Madison,
WI, drew more than
300,000 visitors from roughly 90 countries. The event featured 2,500 head of
dairy cattle and more than 250 exhibitors.
