Meat Goat Ration Evaluator Meat Goat Ration Evaluator Presentation Transcript

  • MEAT GOAT RATION EVALUATOR 2011 HOW TO USE THE MEAT GOAT RATION EVALUATOR 2011 SPREADSHEET by Susan Schoenian 1. Fill out the feed inventory with the feedstuffs you plan to feed your goats. You can replace the feeds listed with your own feeds and values. 2. Go to the Nutrient Requirements worksheet [TAB] and find the class of goat you want to evaluate a ration for. The nutrient requirements in the tables are from the National Research Council's Nutrient Requirements of Small Ruminants, published in 2007. 3. Copy the goat's TDN, CP, Ca, and P requirements to the Windows clipboard. Nutrient requirements are in the BRIGHT YELLOW cells. To copy, highlight the cells you want to copy with the mouse, then hold down the CTRL key and press the C key (or right click the mouse and click COPY). 4. Go to the Worksheet [TAB] and find the same class of goat. 6. Paste the TDN, CP, Ca, and P requirements that you copied to the clipboard to the same location (BRIGHT YELLOW cells) on the Worksheet. To paste, highlight where you want to copy the information to with the mouse, then hold down the CTRL key and press the V key ( or right click the mouse and click PASTE). 7. Under the As Fed column (BLUE cells), enter the amount (pounds) of each feed that you plan to feed this class of goat. 8. The calculated values in the PINK cells show the differences between the nutrients supplied by your ration and the nutrients required by the goat. A calcium to phosphorus ratio is also calculated. 9. You can adjust your ration by making changes to the As fed column. By trial and error, you can figure out which and how much of each feed to feed your goat(s). If you’re unable to balance a ration or create a realistic ration (e.g a goat can't eat 10 lbs. of hay per day), you'll need to add other feeds to your inventory. 10. The spreadsheet is password protected, so you cannot change the formulas. You only need to change values in the BLUE cells for the spreadsheet to work.

TDN = Total digestible nutrients 2) Replace these feeds with your own feeds and values. CP = Crude protein 3) For nutritive values, use book values [TAB], feed labels, or have Ca = Calcium your feedstuffs analysed for nutritive content. P = Phosphorus 4) A mixed grain ration should be listed as one feed. Ca:P = calcium to phosphorus ratio 5) A TMR should be listed as one feed. cwt = one hundred pounds 6) You cannot add rows. They would not be transferred to the worksheet.
