In collaboration with SimHerd, Vilofoss has developed a calculator that can better show the effect its X-Zelit feed additive has on cattle herd.

"No two farms are exactly alike, and therefore, it is also difficult to compare data and figure out how different products will work in exactly your cattle herd. Here, the use of X-Zelit is no exception. Therefore, the X-Zelit calculator makes it easier for you to figure out exactly what you are getting out of using X-Zelit on your farm," Vilofoss explained.

SimHerd offers economic analyses for cattle herds and has added its proven methods in connection with the evelopment of the X-Zelit calculator.

"The calculator works a bit in the same way as a very intelligent calculator that already has control of the calculation - you just have to enter the numbers and you will get the answers delivered immediately," Vilofoss said.

All data on which the calculations are based has a scientific documentation, with different versions for Europe, the United States and Canada, as data bases between the markets are slightly different.

"…to get closest to the best result, the parameters you compare with must match," Vilofoss said.

"The idea is that you can put key figures from your farm into the calculator (for example, the number of cows, milk price, whether you use DCAD (dietary cation-anion difference), how many cases of milk fever and subclinical hypocalcaemia there are) and afterwards, you can see the change with X-Zelit."
