We are offering a voluntary release of AMTS.Cattle™.Pro v 4.0. To access the download link, you need to register on our blog site
To help users understand the CNCPS biology changes and perform the tasks necessary for converting farm files as they update to the new version, we have developed a number of documents and information sources that are easily reached from links on this page.
Before formulating any diets using the new CNCPS biology incorporated in the AMTS.Cattle.Pro v 4.0, you will need to convert the farm feeds to incorporate the new amino acid values and rates in the feed library. We have created a short video that walks you through this process.
This is for FBM users, look at this link for a tutorial of switching over feedbanks
This incorporates the CNCPS v 6.5 biology as well as program interface updates. A summary of the added features and highlights of the CNCPS changes as well a pictorial tutorial for using the A.A. Conversion tool can be found here.
These four blog posts briefly examine the major areas of change in the CNCPS 6.5 Biology
A blog post Tom wrote at the end of last year in which he ran some diets through the updated CNCPS and AMTS.Cattle™.Pro, incorporating the updated CNCPS platform and compared them to both programs before the update. The exercise was to demonstrate, given the same animal, environment, and diet parameters, how the user can expect animal performance to change in the updated biology. It also demonstrated that there is NO difference between formulating diets in CNCPS and AMTS.Cattle™.Pro (regardless of the version). AMTS is a pure, un-modified implementation of the CNCPS model.
This paper, written by Tom, examines the input sensitivity by cattle type. It is an excellent primer and practice farm work through for both new users and experienced users looking for more information
The first in a monthly series of webinars that focus on Ruminant Ration formulation in presentations from Global experts in the model. The first, Delivered on 11 February, was attended by over 250 people globally. In in Mike explained the changes to the model. A full recording of that session is available.
And finally, if, with all these resources just a click away, you are having difficulty downloading the program, converting the feeds, and formulating rations; you can contact support and schedule a help session.
