Papillon Agricultural Company of Easton, Maryland has purchased a new NIR (near infrared) analyzer to conduct quality control analysis at its laboratory in Painted Post, NY. This newest investment underlines the company’s continued commitment to its 38-year history of only sourcing the highest quality bypass protein ingredients.

The NIR analyzer will give real time results on measurements such as moisture and protein for both incoming ingredients and outgoing products. “We’re excited about the benefits of upgrading our quality control to include an NIR and are looking forward to elevating our already rigorous QC standards,” said Clayton Stoffel, technical services manager. “We’re responding to industry needs, and producers will ultimately benefit from our commitment to providing the highest quality products that are consistent from load to load.”

With the new NIR analyzer, Papillon will have increased ability to detect outliers and analytical drift, and will add several additional nutrients to its standard quality control analysis on every load of ingredients and finished product. It will also have the future ability to analyze every sample for various indications including RUP, digestibility, and bulk density. Investment in this new state-of-the-art NIR analyzer allows Papillon to reduce downtime for maintenance and reinforces its commitment to helping dairy producers feed efficiently.

Founded in 1983, Papillon develops and produces premium nutritional products for dairy consultants, feed suppliers, and dairy producers nationwide. This technology-based company offers premium bypass proteins, pre and probiotics, and specialty supplements designed to support optimal feed efficiency and herd health.
