MycoCheckUp.co.uk – New Web App Launched for Dairy Farmers

PRESS RELEASE Date: 06 April 2020 A new online rapid mycotoxin risk assessment tool has been launched today by Micron Bio-Systems Ltd.  MycoCheckUp is a very handy question and answer assessment, to be used by farmers and farm advisors to provide a rapid indication of mycotoxin risk on a dairy farm. By answering a few quick questions, farmers can learn about their risk of mycotoxins from their harvest, storage and feeding practises on their own farm. It is available online at www.mycocheckup.co.uk and can be downloaded freely to phones so that it can be used out on farm, when internet connectivity may be a challenge. The app has been developed by Micron’s Analytical Manager Rob Furmage, with the veterinary input relating to cow health and livestock management by Mike Steele MRCVS, ruminant vet and Technical Director, Micron.   Each question carries a multiple-choice answer system, together with helpful information on each question.  There are no restrictions on the number of times farmers can use the app, so it can be used repeatedly over the year to make assessments at different times or with different groups of animals. MycoCheckUp does not replace the detailed scientific screening of livestock feed for mycotoxins, like the LCMS Mycotoxin Analysis service (mycocheck.co.uk) provided by Micron Bio-Systems or replace veterinary advise on animal health and welfare. As Micron is a global business, the app is also currently available in English, French & Spanish, with further translations in the pipeline. To view and download the app go to www.mycocheckup.co.uk ends Notes to the Editor: Micron Bio-Systems Ltd provide scientific solutions in agriculture to retain value and improve life.  We provide innovative and evidence backed solutions to support those who strive for the health of their livestock.

No one trick pony

As the most cost-effective way of feeding livestock, home-grown forage is an essential part of any feed plan.
