Simulated Feed Ration

The weight of the protein component on the total cost varies as the two components prices change.CLAL.it developed a new tool in order to study the dairy cow feed rations costs. The Simulated Feed Ration is a theoretical feed model, composed by 70% of corn meal and by 30% of soybean extraction meal (protein content: 44% as fed). Soybean is price driver for the protein component of feed ration, while corn is price driver for the energy component. The monthly price of the products corresponds to the average monthly quotation of the Commodities Exchange of the Milan Chamber
