JACKSONVILLE, FL – OCTOBER 30, 2014
If you have ever enjoyed a steak dinner or cold glass of milk in Florida or Georgia, you are supporting area farmers who work 24 hours a day / seven days a week to produce top quality food. Also supporting those farmers is Suwannee Valley Feeds in Trenton, Florida who have been sourcing quality feeds for dairy and beef farms across Florida and Georgia since 2008. Another unique contribution is Suwannee Valley Feeds also works with select dairies to manage their feed cost and milk production risk helping to ensure profits against volatility in the futures markets.
Suwannee Valley Feeds has been committed to maximizing efficiency and sustainable practices since inception. Data is the core of continuous measure and improvement. The company has invested in extensive technical development over the years to collect and analyze data on just about every aspect of their business.

“I am amazed at what can be done when you combine large data sets.” said Will Lloyd, Senior Director, Suwannee Valley Feeds. “You get a whole new perspective when you can see the effects of weather, commodity prices, herd composition and other critical information in a consolidated platform.”
A leader in predictive modeling and advanced analytics, NLP Logix has been upgrading the entire data process of Suwannee Valley Feeds. “Getting visibility of their data into a centralized display is the first step,” said Robby Robertson, Chief Operating Officer, NLP Logix. “With the massive disparate data sets we are now leveraging, we have begun to build models that manage the many variables involved in commodities markets.
