In The News

  • Analyzing Reduced Lignin Varieties via NIR

    Published May 8, 2019

    With the new alfalfa crop quickly approaching and more customers trying a reduced lignin variety for the first time, we thought it would be helpful to address the most common questions we receive. Disclaimer – Dairyland recognizes there are multiple varieties in the marketplace that have lowered the level of lignin in alfalfa through different methods. As a commercial lab, it’s uncommon for a sample to arrive to us labeled as “alfalfa”, let alone “reduced lignin” or a specific brand name. We are not in a position to make any comparisons between specific varieties in the market today.

  • Nutrient Variation: Corn Distillers’ Grains

    Published May 8, 2019

    Corn distillers’ grains are a major ingredient in most beef and dairy markets, with the U.S. producing over 40 million tons of dried distillers’ grains last year (USDA-ERS). In markets near ethanol plants, wet and modified distillers can provide additional value, and occasionally additional challenges. In this article, we will highlight the primary nutrient variations within distillers’ grains.

  • Neutral Detergent Fiber Analysis & Methods - Progress through the Years

    Published April 17, 2019

    A brief description of changes in fiber analysis.

  • Mycotoxin Levels in Corn Products

    Published February 19, 2019

    We continue to see increased levels of mold, yeast, zearalenone, and vomitoxin in this year’s corn and corn silage samples. More recently, we’ve also seen an uptick in zearalenone and vomitoxin in corn byproducts including distillers grain, gluten feed, and corn screenings.

  • Is there a role for NIR on your farm?

    Published March 13, 2014

    With advancements in instrument manufacturing and computing power, we've seen a renewed interest in bringing NIR to the farm. Here we take a look at why NIR will work well in some situations but not others.

  • Is there a role for NIR on the farm? Part 2

    Published January 17, 2014

    Reprinted from Dairy Herd Network...In the first part of this series, we discussed the basics of how NIR works, how drying and grinding affect the spectral properties of the sample, and what spectral ranges are covered by various NIR instruments that are commercially available. In Part 2, we will look at how these factors affect the accuracy of NIR measurements, and then finish up with Part 3, which will propose some possible use cases for NIR on the farm.

  • Is there a role for NIR on the farm? Part 1

    Published November 8, 2013

    Reprinted from Dairy Herd Network...The last five years have illustrated a renewed interest in bringing NIR feed testing technology to the farm. In the following three part series we hope to shed some light on the current efforts to bring NIR to the farm, illustrate where some limitations are, and propose practical use cases.
