fodjan supports you to get a 360° – view on the feeding:

  • From planning feedstuffs and rations in the feed groups.
  • via feeding
  • and documentation of these and other key figures relevant for you
  • up to intelligent reports with which you can determine the success of your feeding strategy and make conclusions for planning.

At the same as that, fodjan promotes collaboration between different people involved in feeding, such as for herd managers, feeders, veterinarians and advisers – all on the same platform, more about collaboration here.
