Feed testing can be used to balance rations and assess the need for nutrient supplements, which are critical for efficient livestock production. Servi-Tech Laboratories offers a variety of analytical packages to help your operation become more profitable.

Forage analysis is used to measure the quality of hay and grazed crops. Establishing a fair market value for forages, whether you are buying or selling, is important. Our analysis packages are designed to give you the nutritional and quality information you need to make informed decisions when buying or selling hay. Servi-Tech Laboratories can also test summer annual forages for nitrate toxicity and prussic acid hazards.
