|A=grain %||? parts of wheat|
|B= protein desired||C= feed %||? parts of feed|
Fill in the spaces:
-A is the protein % of the grain you will use to mix with your feed
-B is the desired protein % you want your final mix to be
-C is the protein % of your feed
To make a 16% feed mixing a 24% protein feed and wheat which is 10% protein.
|10% protein (wheat)||? parts of wheat|
|16% protein desired||24% protein feed||? parts of feed|
Subtract the smaller number from the larger on each diagonal 16-10=6 and 24-16=8
|10% protein (wheat)||8 parts wheat|
|16% protein desired||24% protein feed||6 parts of feed|
Now, divide the parts of each by the total number of parts and multiply by 100.
8 parts + 6 parts= 14 total parts
6 divided by 14 = .428 X 100= 42.8 round up 43 (feed needed)
8 divided by 14 = .571 X 100= 57.1 round down 57 (wheat needed)
Mix 43 parts (cups) of 24% protein feed and 57 parts (cups) of 10% protein wheat to get a 16% feed. Doesn't have to be cups...as long as ratio is 43:57
One may mix to any desired % by replacing the 16% with with the amount of protein one wished to produce.
There are various grains one may use to mix with. Get the protein % of the grain to determine if it will be suitable.
