The right combination of vitamins and minerals is essential in maximizing a herd’s health and production efficiency. At Phoenix Feeds and Nutrition, we work with nutritionists to determine which mix of feeds best suits each customer’s needs.

Ration Balancing – AAMPS
Phoenix Feeds has teamed up with Provimi to ensure our dairy customers have access to the latest nutritional technology available in the industry. AAMPS (Amino Acid Metabolize Protein System) is a computer ration balancing program. Its purpose is to improve accuracy in meeting nutrient requirements for high producing dairy herds.
The program allows for maximum forage utilization, predicts rumen performance, balances amino acids and metabolizable protein, and predicts risk of milk fat. Our personnel are trained to use the AAMPS ration balancing program to unlock a herd’s production potential.
