Podcast: Dr. Phillip Miller: What can this ingredient database and modeling software do for you?

14

For years we have used ingredient databases such as the NRC to estimate nutrient levels for formulating diets for our pigs, but what if I told you that there is another database out there with recently updated values that also has some modeling capabilities? In this episode with Dr. Phillip Miller, we talk about a database he and his colleagues have been working on, the National Animal Nutrition Program, that has new ingredient composition information and many other capabilities that can help nutritionists, production managers, feed mill managers, and many other employees in the swine industry.

“There are very specific ways that data needs to be collected in order to generate a model or put together nutrient requirements, which is something we have really been working on.” – Dr. Phillip Miller
