Ration Balancing


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.

AMPS 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.

Nutritional Benefits: 


  • Helps optimize microbial protein outputs from the rumen

  • Helps in selecting the most efficient combination of protein feeds

  • Helps balance more precisely for carbohydrate fractions

  • Provides results from more extensive feed analysis, such as in situ or in vitro digestibility value

  • Identifies limiting nutritional factors

  • Allows for more precise adjustments with various forage qualities

Economic Benefits: 

  • Helps achieve the best possible return over feed cost

  • Helps achieve the greatest output of milk components

  • Helps determine the cost benefits of various strategies that change nutrient digestibility (e.g. heat processing soybeans).

  • Focuses on metabolizable protein to avoid overfeeding protein


Why AAMPS Feed Formulation Software?

When herd performance doesn’t match what the software predicts and you can’t figure out what happened—or what to do next—nothing helps you find answers like AAMPS can. AAMPS is built on a robust database of inputs and additives which is routinely updated with cutting-edge science and peer-reviewed research.
