According to Dr. Foley, “This really is about science meeting software. At FMS, we’re about software development. In FRB, we offer a highly-customizable infra-structure, but we don’t want to be the ones to provide the nutrient requirement equations and ingredient libraries. That’s outside the scope of our business. CVNA, on the other hand, is in the business of dairy nutrition consulting and they developed Formulate2 to ensure that they could deliver superior cow performance to their dairy clients. By combining FRB’s user-friendly new interface and personalization features with CVNA’s unique way of delivering results from the amino acid model and NRC data, feed manufacturers and consultants can easily create their own branded, customized diets that meet established nutritional guidelines for dairy cattle. What’s especially exciting is that this solution is focused on helping dairy nutritionists get their work done quickly and accurately, something our market research indicated as an urgent need,” he explained.
CVNA has developed a reputation among animal nutritionists as both aleading-edge dairy consulting firm and a respecteddeveloper of nutrition modeling software, services, and training. The company willprovide its “Conference Room to Parlor” training programandconsultation to help ensure that FRB with Formulate2customers understand the data they are using and how to use that data to formulate high performance dairy rations.
