Breakfast webinar on Rumen8

Rumen8 is a free software application to easily manage dairy and beef cattle rations to increase production, reduce costs and lower enteric methane intensity. Originally developed for the dairy industry in Australia, it was adapted for use in East Africa by adding, amongst others, a tropical feed library with 230 feeds. It has proven itself as a powerful tool for reducing the feed cost, increasing margin above feed costs and reducing enteric methane emissions per liter of milk. 

This breakfast webinar was held on July 8 2021 and included a video impression of how Rumen8 is used at dairy farms in Kenya, introductions by experts Jos Creemers and Hink Perdok, practical demonstrations on how to use Rumen8 in the formulation of a cattle ration and a Q and A session. The Netherlands Food Partnership and the NEADAP coalition considers this tool a ‘best practice in dairy and beef’ and promotes its wider use.
