Bestmix and milas software solutions for premix industry - Agriculture - Livestock
As premix companies are at the heart of feed, petfood and aquafeed industries, market trends heavily influence premix formulation. In-depth nutritional know-how and innovations require software that handles advanced nutritional concepts. Adifo has created several BESTMIX modules and functionalities that streamline the organisation of premix producers, like multilevel optimization, labeling and safety data sheets management. Update premix ingredients based upon finished products, both for nutritional values and prices. Define an inclusion rate for premixes and optimize with nutrient constraints at premix or end product level. Define and declare the carrier for the premix. Print the product specification with the premix-based or end product-based nutrient values.
“from premix over concentrate all the way to the complete feed”
Whether you want to formulate a trace mineral/vitamin premix, or a standard or custom concentrate, or sub recipes to formulate petfood diets, BESTMIX Feed Formulation and BESTMIX Formulation as a Service offer a wide range of tools to accomplish your goals in a multilevel formulation environment.
On the micro premix level, you want to ensure an added amount of vitamin and trace mineral nutrients. In BESTMIX Feed Formulation you can set the inclusion level, and formulate your diet directly on the premix level or to the end product taking into account the premix inclusion level. After designing the premix, save it as an ingredient and make it available in BESTMIX Feed Formulation for other formulations or send it to BESTMIX Formulation as a Service to be used by the sales staff in the field for customer-specific formulations.
Let’s go up one step and talk about concentrates. Using multi level formulation there is nothing more powerful than what Adifo has to offer.
- Make a concentrate starting from a Dairy TMR with BESTMIX Formulation as a Service
- Include a standard subrecipe or adjust it to customize inclusions based on animal characteristics by simply adding it to any type of formulation.
- Design your concentrate taking into account farm own ingredients
- Use tools to work with very wet ingredients (like liquid feeding for swine)
- Multilevel compounds are used to optimize a main compound with included sub compounds at multiple levels. They are especially useful for custom-made or standard concentrate calculations used by petfood companies.
- Define carriers to let the formulation float correctly
“ on the fly updates of Tags, Labels and Safety Data Sheets”
It can be a challenge to have to keep a company’s documentation up to date.With Bestmix Formulation software, we fully integrate document updates and generation with day to day formulation.
Anytime a premix or concentrate gets updated, Bestmix Formulation uses its tag or label rules engine to generate the required legal information, just the way you want it to appear on the tag.
Next to tags, also safety data sheets need to be handed out to your customers. In order to make sure that you are constantly up to date with the current legislation, Adifo has entered an exclusive partnership with LISAM, a leading provider of software and service solutions for Environment, Health and Safety compliance.
This partnership provides an integrated solution with Bestmix Feed. Thanks to this integrated solution, companies will have full compliance insight during formulation and will supply professional labelling of hazardous materials and MSDS authoring.
