- As Total Mixed Ration (TMR) is not widely known in the Philippines as of yet, following are a few Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
- What is TMR
TMR stands for Total Mixed Ration. It is the formulation and blending of various protein feeds, minerals, vitamins, grains and forages, including corn silage and other agricultural by-products into a complete ration which will provide adequate nourishment for ruminants. Currently Benacorn is selling two types of TMR Feeds: Lactating and Non-Lactating.
- Who sells TMR
Currently Benacorn Corporation is the pioneer of TMR production and distribution in the Philippines. It is being sold under the product name Benafeeds TMR.
- Why TMR
TMR is not simply food for ruminants, it is a supply of their complete nutritional needs. In feeding TMR, these nutrients are carefully formulated to achieve larger growth and/or higher milk production. As it is somewhat of a “salad” for ruminants, TMR provides the energy, proteins, minerals and vitamins in each bite. This minimizes the ability of ruminants to sort through individual rationed ingredients as they may do when not fed TMR.
- Who needs TMR
Ruminant animals such as cattle, sheep and goat
- What is the shelf life of TMR
If properly stored and handled, the shelf life of each bag of Benafeeds TMR is 21 days.
- Can TMR be shipped internationally
Benacorn Corporation has experience in exporting TMR within Asia. For more information regarding international shipping to other countries, please contact our Sales Department.
