Feed Budgeting Spreadsheets

— Written By

Dr. Matt Poore has developed a couple of spreadsheets to assist farmers and ranchers to determine winter feed needs. We have had spreadsheets in the past, but these have new features. One is for beef cattle and the other for multi-species pasture-based farms including small ruminants. These spreadsheets work by plugging in your farm acres, number and size of livestock, hay and feed on hand and other feed supplements. The result will tell you if more hay is needed or if you have a surplus. Call our office to set up an appointment to come in and get a copy of the spreadsheets with instruction on how to use them.
