USDA Organic Crops and Livestock: Dry Matter Intake (DMI) Calculation Worksheet for Ruminants Mobile App
The USDA Organic Crops and Livestock: Dry Matter Intake (DMI) Calculation Worksheet for Ruminants mobile app offers a simple way to estimate feed ration and soils used in organic farming operations.
How does it work?
With the app, farmers can track a variety of details, such as food waste, pounds of dry matter and crude protein consumed in the pasture, and organic matter content from a smartphone or tablet.
The app includes two different worksheets, one intended for those who have just one type of feed ration during the pasture grazing season, and another for calculating the average dry matter basis for each type and class of animal in the pasture.
