The Forage Value Adjustment Tool

Productivity of dairy cattle is heavily influenced by the digestibility of fiber in the forages they consume, and laboratory analysis now make it possible to quantify differences in fiber digestibility among forage sources. The Forage Value Adjustment Tool allows dairy producers and nutritionists to adjust the economic value of forages to account for neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD). The spreadsheet may be freely downloaded for use.
