The mineral content of animal feeds is carefully blended and monitored to ensure optimal animal health and quality of product. Grass-fed dairy cattle require the optimum balance of the major minerals calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus, as well as the trace minerals copper, manganese and zinc. Proper mineral balance ensures optimum milk quality and production. To meet the industry need of monitoring the mineral content Rigaku offers the NEX QC+ EDXRF analyzer for the fast and simple measurement of grass and other animal feeds. The NEX QC+ offers analysts a simple yet powerful and versatile system for quantifying elemental composition using the empirical approach. The results of this study indicate that given stable samples, proper sample handling and proper calibration technique, the Rigaku NEX QC+ EDXRF can achieve excellent results for the measurement of the key mineral elements in grass and other animal feeds.
