The Drought Feed Calculator is an essential tool for sheep and cattle producers dealing with drought and dry seasons. It enables busy farmers to make informed decisions and save money. Farmers in any location can easily and quickly determine the minimum feed requirement for a range of animals with different nutritional needs.

The app calculates:
1. The amount of feed per head
2. The cost per head
3. The cost for a period
4. The amount for a mob/herd
5. The total cost for a mob/herd

Farmers can easily assess the value of different feeds by simply comparing these results for three feeds as well a mixed ration. There are 71 different feeds to select from, each with their own estimated average energy, protein and dry matter values. Values can be easily over written when feed test results are available. There are a number of warnings built in to help guide the busy producer when developing a ration.

Testimonial: "The Drought Feed Calculator reinforced the importance of quantifying the value of different feeds. Using the App, I calculated a saving of $3390 by purchasing oats at $230 per tonne compared to pasture hay at $180 per tonne – even though the hay was $50 per tonne cheaper! I only had to feed 610 grams of oats compared with 970 grams feeding the hay. This added up when feeding 1000 animals for a bit over 3 months" - David Kingston The Rock NSW

Very good app. Been waiting for ages for the DPI to start developing apps. Hopefully more to come. Heaps of potential. Chemical mixing, joining and mating, grazing calendar, etc
