Winter Forage Cost Calculator

Feed and forage represent a major cost for lamb production. Minimising winter feed costs can therefore play a role in reducing production costs whilst maximising feed quality can improve productivity.

This program will assist you in costing different Winter Forage Options and in comparing the effect of various changes to yields, production costs and utilisation rates.

The program aims to include the major costs associated with the different forage options but does not include all overhead costs.

It is suggested that you look at each of the sheets before starting to that you are familiar with the information which can be included and how the final comparison of forage options is presented.

To make best use of the program it is recomended that wherever possible you use data which represents your own farm. Some guidance is also given with example information.
