ON THE FARM APPROACH

On your farm is where we make a difference

Collaboration on your farm

Every day, we visit thousands of farms all over the world. De Heus specialists are 'hands on' and enjoy working closely with farmers, providing key insights into the relationship between feed and how the animals are kept, advising about nutritional strategies that meet the animals’ physiological needs and supporting farm management. Focusing on one goal: keeping animals healthy and enabling optimal production.

No two farms are the same, neither is the solution!

Every farm is different and requires its own specific feed strategy to keep animals healthy and performing optimally. At De Heus, we aim to improve performance and provide peace of mind, developing strategies for cost-efficient production that also take care of the environmental impact and always respond quickly to changes in different markets.

Many farmers rely on our on the farm approach

For every farmer, we determine the animal’s nutritional needs and define a feeding strategy so that we can accurately predict the results on performance. Many different aspects and objectives play a role in defining a customised feeding strategy. Each plan therefore examines every conceivable aspect of today's farming. We look at the many variables, such as the health of the animals, genetics, animal welfare, local legislation, nutrition, microclimate, accessibility of raw materials, farm management, availability of roughage and both long-term and short-term objectives.
