FOSS Digital Services a centraliazed cloud-based network management solution that is unique and the only solution on the market that combines instrumentation and software technologies to allow feedlot managers to take control of every part of their forage and mixed ration production.

FOSS Pacific has entered this innovation into the ALFA Award for Innovation 2022, proudly supported by Integrated Animal Production. The winner will be announced at the ALFA BeefEx22 Conference in October. Read on to find out more about this innovation within the feedlot industry.

Tell us, how is the innovation original/innovative?

The service is a centralised, cloud-based network management solution where you can transfer data/results, configure and monitor NIR instruments remotely from any internet-enabled computer.

The advantage for the feedlot manager means, samples no longer need to be sent away and results/data can be shared without physically being on site. Not only do you achieve quicker turnaround time you also save on cost. In addition, the feedlot manager can share results and data with multiple stakeholders from different locations without the need to touch the instrument. Therefore, the animal nutritionist, commodity trader and quality managers can make sound business decisions in an instant.

Additionally, you can receive monthly reports on the performance of your instruments with potential issues flagged, giving you a heads up to make adjustments, therefore, avoiding any breakdowns and costly downtime of instruments with the help of FOSS applications and service teams. Additionally, the service gives you peace of mind knowing that your data is protected with ISO 27001 certification and never lose your data with automatic back-up so you can access your data anytime you need it.

So, how does it benefit the Australian Lot Feeding Industry?

The FOSS Digital service benefits the feedlot site and at raw material intake making it simple and cost effective to manage analytical operations. For instance, an update to a calibration can be installed on a master instrument and then shared across all instruments in different locations at the click of a mouse button. Such an approach also allows a specialist to monitor and manage remote instruments while operators do not need any specific knowledge and training and can simply run their samples.

And how does it integrate into Australian Lot Feeding operations?

Together with the FOSS applications and service teams and the business IT department, FOSS Digital Services is a seamless easy to install at any feedlot site. That will allow result/ data sharing between the Feedlot Manager, Quality Assurance Manager, Animal nutritionist and the Procurement/ Commodity traders.

By adopting the FOSS Digital Services solution, you are not only saving money by avoiding product wastage and testing the correct parameters to ensure high quality of the mixed ration giving you transparency and traceability of results. You also save thousands on production costs with consistent high analytical performance of instruments, no matter where they are located and who is using them you are guaranteed less downtime on instruments.
