Formulating the FiMLAC way makes feed choice quite simple (once you know how!). In the traditionally formulated ration example (ExampleRationHighPtn PDF), the 22% compound was formulated to the crude protein content. It happened to contain 108g/kg MPE and 151g/kg MPN.
In the ration report (ExampleRationHighPtn PDF), the Milk Yield Potential from MP is 3 litres short of the ME supply. It is roughly 46g of MP needed for each litre of milk, 3 x 46 = 138g short. Divided by the 12kg of compound being fed = 11.5g/kg short of MPE. Our compound contains 108.0g/kg + 11.5g/kg extra = 119.5g/kg needed in the feed.
Compare this to the well balanced ration (ExampleRationBalanced PDF) where the FiMLAC 120M has MPE at 120g/kg as standard.
In the example ration (ExampleRationHighPtn PDF), the excess MPN is far too high at 468g/day. Ideally, we would be below 300g/day, so a need to lose 168g/day out of the ration, i.e., lose 168g in 12kg of compound = 14g/kg less excess MPN in the compound.
The 22% compound as formulated has 151g/kg MPN and 108g/kg MPE, so an excess MPN of 43g/kg. So, we now need a maximum MPN of 43 – 14 = 29g/kg above the new MPE of 120g/kg, so 149g/kg MPN.
Compare FiMLAC 120M which has the MPN set at 145g/kg as standard.
In a way, it is just like comparing tractor engine sizes!
Using the FiMLAC approach, the guesswork is taken out of the equation.
The FiMLAC range was started back In 2001 on the back of the DEFRA LINK study, Feed into Milk for Lactating cows.
