For an additional cost, AMTS.Cattle offers a non-linear optimizer .Pro(ao). The non-linear solution allows you to maximize Income Over Feed Costs or minimize Feed Cost. In some situations the non-linear algorithm may be a better fit for the biological model. This method, unlike any other optimizer used today, gives you more decision making control. This is because, as a non-linear system, there is really no one perfect solution. Rather, you tell the optimizer “show me five (or 10, or 100) solutions.” You then pick from these solutions the diet you think is best! In this way, you, the professional nutritionist, have final say as to what the diet.
Additionally, this optimizer has two objective functions: Minimize Cost OR Maximize Income Over Feed Costs. Our experience and research has shown improvements in income over feed costs as high as 10%. With today’s feed costs as high as they are, imagine the feedback from your clients if you can increase their IOFC 10%!
