Feed cost calculator

This tool can be used to work out the lowest cost of a number of different sheep feeds.

It can also be used to work out the feed value of a chosen mix of feed in terms of its energy and protein value and provide a cost per tonne, per megajoule of energy and per kilo of protein.

{{feed_0.name}}

Energy:{{ ept_0 = energy_0 * 1000 * (dry_matter_0 / 100) | number : 0 }}MJ/t 'as fed'
Energy Cost:$ {{ cost_0 / ept_0 | number : 2 }}/MJ 'as fed'
Protein:{{ paf_0 = dry_matter_0 * crude_protein_0 / 100 | number : 0 }}% 'as fed'
Protein Cost:$ {{ cost_0 / (paf_0 * 10) | number : 2 }}/kg

{{feed_1.name}}

Energy:{{ ept_1 = energy_1 * 1000 * (dry_matter_1 / 100) | number : 0 }}MJ/t 'as fed'
Energy Cost:$ {{ cost_1 / ept_1 | number : 2 }}/MJ 'as fed'
Protein:{{ paf_1 = dry_matter_1 * crude_protein_1 / 100 | number : 0 }}% 'as fed'
Protein Cost:$ {{ cost_1 / (paf_1 * 10) | number : 2 }}/kg

{{feed_2.name}}

Energy:{{ ept_2 = energy_2 * 1000 * (dry_matter_2 / 100) | number : 0 }}MJ/t 'as fed'
Energy Cost:$ {{ cost_2 / ept_2 | number : 2 }}/MJ 'as fed'
Protein:{{ paf_2 = dry_matter_2 * crude_protein_2 / 100 | number : 0 }}% 'as fed'
Protein Cost:$ {{ cost_2 / (paf_2 * 10) | number : 2 }}/kg

Composition and Cost of Feed Mix
