No “Off Season” for Farmers

Here in Wisconsin it is easy to drive through the countryside during the winter and not think too much about the busy days that are whirling by on the many farms dotting the landscape. Perhaps because everything is covered in a seemingly peaceful, uniform blanket of white, or maybe because you’re simply too busy praying to make it through another white-knuckled ride across slippery roads and highways, one can tend to be focused on other things.

The fact of the matter though, is that underneath the peaceful veil of winter lives a flurry (pun completely intended) of activity on the farm, ensuring that there is always food waiting at our next stop on our journey, or waiting for us when we get back home. Though crops may not be in the ground or herds out in the fields munching on fresh grass, farming is an all-seasons activity.

With this in mind, Nelson-Jameson will be putting a few miles on the roads this winter, getting to a variety of farm-related shows, meetings, and conferences in the coming months. If we are in your neck of the woods, please be sure to stop by and see us to discuss your farm-related needs…for all seasons! Or be in touch and let us know what we can do for you!

Product Focus: UDY Protein Analyzer

calfOn the blog, we have dealt with the topic of protein numerous times. Why? Well, protein is on our customers’ minds. This nutritional focal point is not only about our diets; it is also about the food production processes that bring these products to our plates.

For example, farmers want to make sure that their livestock is getting the best nutrition available. The proper nutrition of animals not only assists in their well-being, but also helps to create quality food end-products. Protein, as it is for humans, is an essential in animal diets and in the growth and maintenance of livestock, including in the feeding/raising of calves.

That is one of the reasons that our Lab area features the UDY Protein Analyzer, a tool used by many feed operations and farms. The UDY measures protein using Acid Orange Dye.   It also differentiates between non-protein nitrogen, vestigial pieces of intact protein molecules, and functional proteins. Instead of measuring via digestion methods based on nitrogen, the technology is based on functional binding sites of amino acids lysine, histidine, and arginine, considered essential amino acids in the diet of the non-ruminant calf.

An exclusive to Nelson-Jameson, the UDY is aimed at farmers and small businesses where on-site testing is ideal. Are you interested in getting your hands on this “hands-on approach”? You can check out the UDY Protein Analyzer on our website.  For further information, contact our Laboratory Products Department at 800-826-8302.
