Genesis Feed Technologies demonstrates nutrient calculator for soy during USSEC session
Matthew Clark of Genesis Feed Technologies recently shared a real-time demo of the Nutrient Value Calculator (NVC) during the US Soybean Export Council's learning session at the virtual 2021 Commodity Classic.
"Traditionally, buyers have evaluated soy on crude protein alone, but new research shows that metric is not the best indicator of how the crop will meet the nutritional needs of animals and aquaculture," said USSEC. "Research has also shown country of origin makes a difference in the quality of soy.We know this data is important, but what does this mean in terms of dollars and cents?"
Clark gave attendees an answer to this question through an inside look at NVC at work during the session.
"Our job is to take some of these parameters that we can measure and turn those into dollars and cents," Clark said.
