pie-chartAMTS.Feedbank Manager (FBM)

.FBM streamlines the process of importing data from the feed mill; updating feeds, formulas, and pricing; and creating and sharing Feed banks with other .Pro users.

FBM eliminates redundant data entry and increased potential for data entry errors by electronically sharing data between Mill Programs (BestMix™, Brill Formulation® and Format™), analytical lab analyses, and AMTS.Cattle.Pro.

Additionally, .FBM can be used to control security settings for .Pro feed banks and individual feeds, track which users change or create a feed, and the date the feed values are changed. .FBM can also import, create, and export feed mixes or blends (“composites”).

Benefits to Mill

  • Provides a central location for price and nutrient composition data for all feeds and ingredients in the mill(s).
  • Allows fast and easy updating of price and nutrient composition information from mill software, or feed lab analysis files.
  • Creates and updates AMTS Feedbanks, providing the nutritionists with up-to-date prices and nutrient compositions.
  • Provides the Mill with a log of users and edits; allows Mill to define read-only and password protection of feedbanks as well as individual feeds and mixes.

Benefits to the Nutritionist

  • Newest feed price and composition data can easily be received via email or file sharing site and dropped into AMTS.Cattle.Professional. The AMTS.Pro Reconcile function will automatically update farm file data.
  • Export new formulas from AMTS.Cattle.Professional to FBM and to Mill for final pricing and production.
