New Rations = Alfalfa 50% and Corn 50%
Calcium (CA) to Phosphorus (P) Ratio: 2.5 to 1 Recommended. Actual = 3.5 to 1
TDN = 72.5, protects against "ketosis" and "pregnancy toxemia", higher the value the better. As the amount of TDN increases in a ration, the rate of gain normally increases. Therefore, feed efficiency and overall performance are determined to a large extent by the level of TDN or energy in the ration
TDN = Total digestible nutrients, DM = Dry Matter, CP = Crude Protein, DP = Digestible Protein
