fodjan takes the next step in expanding its smart feeding platform
Since 2014, fodjan has been developing digital solutions for more efficient feeding management in livestock farming. Over the past few years, more and more partners have supported the development of fodjan’s smart feeding platform. Now fodjan is promoting its open platform idea by securing partnerships with new companies: Schaumann and Nutreco. All bring additional expertise and experience to the table.
Farmers, advisors and the related industry will benefit as a result
says fodjan’s CEO Carsten Gieseler: “These ambitious new partners offer us a great opportunity to move towards a feeding platform that will be well connected, smart and easy to use. Users will have the chance to upgrade their feeding performance thanks to a more efficient, transparent and data-driven feeding management system.”
Schaumann – the feeding specialist – sees great potential in linking the data generated by dairy cows.
“The Schaumann senior technical advisor knows the challenges of his customers. One of the central tasks of the technical advisory team is to constantly monitor the performance and health of the herds to provide advice on the feeding program. The combination of Schaumann’s know-how and the fodjan dairy cattle feeding program offers completely new possibilities for purposeful co-operation with dairy cattle farmers,” says Reinhold Arnemann, Member of the Executive Board – Sales and Marketing at Union Agricole Holding AG.
