For an additional cost, AMTS.Cattle offers a genetic algorithm optimizer, .Pro(ao). The advanced solution allows you to maximize Income Over Feed Costs or minimize Feed Cost. In some situations the genetic algorithm may be a better fit for the biological model. This method, unlike any other optimizer used today, gives you more decision making control. The program essentially breeds for a better diet, going through multiple iterations with each generation improving on the previous. You tell the optimizer to show the top solutions based on selected sort criteria. 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%!
