Farming of livestock involves the management of a complex range of factors, each of which has natural variation. These include genetic potential, breed, environment, water, quality of farm staff, disease and nutrition. Managing each factor effectively is best achieved by a team of people who support the farmer in his enterprise. This team should include a veterinarian, a breeding supplier, a financial advisor and a nutritionist.
Whether the farm produces meat from cattle, pigs, poultry or rabbits, or milk or eggs, Optivite has expertise in all aspects of animal nutrition targeted at giving cost effective improvement in your farming business.
Optivite has designed this website to address a variety of problems and concerns encountered by today's producers. The Problem Solving pages feature recommendations relevant to your key issues of fertility, milk yield, egg production, hatchability, performance, growth rate, mortality, quality and grading.
We can help you take control of your nutrition, by reducing the variation, maintaining the nutritional value of the raw materials and enhancing your feed performance through the use of speciality additives. Consequently your time and skills can be devoted to managing all the other factors required to ensure that your livestock produce to their potential.
