FeedFIT® Launches Three New Modules
FeedFIT® provides the framework and resources to understand the Financials, trace the Inventories, and Track the KPI’s of your dairy’s feed center to make it as profitable as your parlor. FeedFIT® is module-based, creating customized blueprints to guide discussions and identify the largest areas of opportunity and growth.
To start the path to profitability in the feed center, GPS is launching the first three modules of FeedFIT® – Feeding Software, Loading and Mixing, and Feeder Training!
The Feeding Software module is a collaborative effort between GPS and feeding software providers. This alliance is designed to provide our clients with a high level of support and foster more effective use of the software. To fully leverage the software capabilities, this module works to amplify their use and encourage the monitoring of weighbacks, intakes, feed delivery times, loading deviations, and feed costs.
The Loading and Mixing module takes a deep dive to ensure the formulated diet is accurately and consistently delivered to the feed bunk every day and available to every cow. GPS has partnered with Diamond V to include two services that evaluate the loading, mixing, and delivery of TMR – The Mixer Audit and TMR Audit 2.0. The Mixer Audit is an exclusive offer which evaluates all the key components of a TMR mixer while the TMR Audit 2.0 evaluates the consistency of the TMR mix and utilizes bunk surveillance to monitor feed access.
The Feeder Training module of FeedFIT® focuses on the people of the feed center and will compel feeders to understand, implement, and take charge of other modules within the program. As a module of FeedFIT®, Feeder Training will include an emphasis on utilizing feeding software, evaluating mixer performance, and increasing feed center efficiency.

The goal of the Master Feeder School program is to elevate the feeder position in the industry to better align with the fiscal impact the feeding management has on any dairy. Registration for our Michigan Feeder School is open!
