STANDARDISATION OF MIR SPECTROMETERS ACROSS OPTIMIR NETWORK

 

The triple objective is to obtain similar spectra overtime, across models of machine, and across brands of machine. The network is comprised with around 65 MIR spectrometers in 25 milk laboratories.

We’ve proven that the standardisation of machines is mandatory :

The OptiMIR network involves Milk Recording Organisations and Research Partners. It’s an innovative framework for the development of dairy farm management tools based on MIR technology.

OPTIMIR MODELS AND EQUATIONS

 

Available predictive equations (2015) :

  • Milk concentrations of Ca, P, Na, K, Mg
  • Milk concentrations of Fatty Acids (e.g. C10, C12, C14, C18:1cis9…)
  • Milk concentrations of BHB, Acetone and Citrate
  • Methane emissions
  • Warning indicator of sub-clinical ketosis based on milk BHB and Acetone

Predictive equation in progress and expected soon :

  • Warning indicator of energy deficit based on milk BHB, Acetone, Citrate, C10, C12, C14 and C18:1cisC9
  • Warning indicator of sub-clinical ketosis based on spectral variations
  • Warning indicator of disturbed energy balance based on spectral variations

Predictive equation in progress and expected in longer term :

  • Pregnancy monitoring tool based on spectral variations
  • Warning indicator of sub-clinical acidosis based on spectral variations
  • Warning indicator of disturbed energy balance based on spectral variations
