Since 2014, fodjan has been developing digital solutions for more efficient feeding management in livestock farming. Over the past few years, more and more partners have supported the development of fodjan’s smart feeding platform. Now fodjan is promoting its open platform idea by securing partnerships with new companies: Schaumann and Nutreco. All bring additional expertise and experience to the table. Farmers, advisors and the related industry will benefit as a result says fodjan’s CEO Carsten Gieseler: "These ambitious new partners offer us a great opportunity to move towards a feeding platform that will be well connected, smart and easy to use. Users will have the chance to upgrade their feeding performance thanks to a more efficient, transparent and data-driven feeding management system." Schaumann - the feeding specialist - sees great potential in linking the data generated by dairy cows. "The Schaumann senior technical advisor knows the challenges of his customers. One of the central tasks of the technical advisory team is to constantly monitor the performance and health of the herds to provide advice on the feeding program. The combination of Schaumann’s know-how and the fodjan dairy cattle feeding program offers completely new possibilities for purposeful cooperation with dairy cattle farmers,"says Reinhold Arnemann, Member of the Executive Board –Sales and Marketing at Union Agricole Holding AG.
Nutreco sees promise for fodjan’s platform in international markets. As one of the leading global animal and aqua nutrition companies,Nutreco is proud to become a new partner for fodjan’s digital solutions. "Ever since fodjan participated in the Nutreco FeedTech Challenge, we have been impressed with their ability to deliver nutritional insight to farmers effectively," said CEO Rob Koremans. “We believe partnering with fodjan fits very well with our ambition to become an on-farm solutions provider and are looking forward to working with the fodjan team to deploy their solution in the various international markets we are active in."

"Lely welcomes the further expansion of strategic partners, the input from various disciplines gives the opportunity to create even more added value for farmers", stated Lely’s CEO Alexander van der Lely.
