Moisture Tracker



Current Ingredient list


The Moisture Tracker is a hand-held, Near-Infra-Red (NIR) scanning device, which rapidly measures the dry matter. 
 The Moisture Tracker device provides livestock producers with near instantaneous, accurate dry matter and moisture readings which enable livestock producers to quickly react to changes in dry matter thus ensuring that the ration delivered matches the ration calculated.  The Moisture Tracker is the first device on the market that provides livestock producers and nutritionists with an affordable on-farm solution to quickly and accurately measure the dry matter and moisture content of both inbound and stored feed.  Livestock producers and nutritionists can utilize the information gathered by the Moisture Tracker to provide more consistent rations with the goal of improving productivity, herd health, and profitability.

The key innovation of the Moisture Tracker is providing Near-Infra-Red (NIR) scanning technology, which was previously only available using costly semi-portable or stationary apparatus, into an affordable, simple to use, hand-held device.Value of Moisture Tracker Technology
