Energy Values for Alternative Feeds

Printable PDF

Most forages and commodities can receive OARDC energy calculations from Dairyland Laboratory’s Package D. These feeds have a defined and relatively narrow range of AD-ICP and Lignin values that allow book values of these nutrients to be used in energy calculations.

Some feed can only receive OARDC energy calculations from Dairyland Laboratory’s Package D1 because they are not uniform enough to utilize book values for AD-ICP or Lignin.  The following chart depicts which feed and package combinations are required for the most common use objectives.
