Rock River Laboratory Europe

POWERED BY InnovationsTeam

Innovative forage and feed analysis supported by Rock River Laboratory, Inc. from Watertown /Wisconsin

Since the early 1990s InnovationsTeam has stood for consulting, planning and design of modern dairy barns ( The knowledge of housing and management of high producing dairy cow has its origin in the dairy industry of the United States. For more than 20 years, the professionalism and research in the dairy industry has grown significantly.

Cow comfort and modern barn design has helped to increase the profitability of the dairymen and will be continued through the work of InnovationsTeam. But we know that the area of nutrition has a huge potential for an improvement in efficiency in European herds and is a new addition to our well-known services.

The use of CNCPS (Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System) as a precise prediction model for requirements, feed utilization, animal performance and nutrient excretion for dairy and beef is internationally highly respected. To understand feed composition, digestion and metabolism, vast research knowledge has been accumulated, but to run a dynamic ration balancing software like NDS or AMTS successfully, a sophisticated and dynamic data set is needed. This is provided by qualified agricultural analysis laboratories like Rock River Laboratory.

Our goal is to provide the European market with the unlimited possibilities of modern feed and forage analysis. This made us partner up with one of the leading agricultural analysis laboratories in the United States: Rock River Laboratory, Inc. from Watertown/Wisconsin. With over 40 years experience in agricultural analysis and more than 150.000 samples per year analyzed within the forage department alone, Rock River Laboratory is the perfect partner to fit our needs in Europe. A young and highly motivated team that “speaks” cow and is linked to research activities at the University of Wisconsin – Madison makes sure that we are able to offer our clients packages that fit our market. Analysis of forage that explains to us “what the cows are saying” will help farmers or/and nutritionists to rank their homegrown feeds and unlock hidden potential in rations.

Rock River Laboratory Europe, located in the Northeastern part of Germany, is the exclusive partner of Rock River Laboratory Inc. in the US. We stand to assist dairy cattle and equine owners, and their nutritionists, to analyze feedstuffs to make informed decision for optimal ration building. Offering both NIRs access to the same accurate prediction equation database employed by each of the existing nine Rock River Laboratory locations throughout the world. Thanks to this technology, the customers will get the same research-founded analysis as offered in the United States without the headache and time loss of sending samples overseas.

We offer a variety of different analytical packages from DYNAMIC CNCPS, DYNAMIC CARBOHYDRATES to KPS (Kernel Processing scores) to evaluate your forage inventory. Analysis Reports with detailed data, graphic digestion curves and visual representations will help you better understand your feeds and forages. Calculated values like TTNDFD (Total Tract NDF Digestibility) will help you make decisions when needed.
The data will be provided through email, with a ready to be imported XML file that feeds your ration balancing tool, as well as a log on at our website.
It is all available now in Europe!
Create an account, send a sample, get results and adjust your ration. The potential is there!
