In recent years, livestock management has responded to a greater demand for meat from international markets as well as agricultural innovations that ensure maximum crop yield. Agriculture producers must guarantee stability for their innovative technology because risk in grain production is dependent upon variable weather conditions and commodity prices.
In the 1990s, with the arrival of direct sowing and biotechnology for agriculture, beef and dairy cattle production were relocated to lower agriculture potential fields. Adapting to this new environment has forced farmers to expand their knowledge of forage production by measuring crop yield and nutritional contributions to their cattle for each crop and hybrid.
Through consistent management, farmers could determine the optimum combination to produce higher-quality meat and milk from their livestock. As a consequence, producers began to demand specific information on the efficient management of forage resources to improve the economic results of animal production. Today, producers continue to search for this valuable information in a modern and accessible way.
Until today, we have faced a lack of information accessibility on livestock forage management respect to agricultural production. From this premise, Fortia was born. Fortia is the first platform in the agricultural sector that makes this information available to the user in a friendly, modern, and simple way. In this space, you will find relevant information on corn and sorghum silage making and management and the direct grazing of forage sorghums. Fortia offers the knowledge farmers need to optimize the efficient production of kilos of meat per hectare per acre, both in pure livestock areas and mixed systems. On Fortia, you can find insights from agricultural advisers, and hear from real agriculture producers who join this collaborative platform.
