Required: fodjan App or Pro Dairy
The milk yield value in fodjan indicates the milk yield that can theoretically be achieved with the present ration based on the formula stored in your feed model (see below for more on the calculation).
Attention: Since the conversion of the ingredients in the ration by the cow often does not always run equally and 100% optimally (planned vs. loaded vs. unloaded vs. eaten vs. digested ration), a smaller quantity of milk may be milked than calculated in fodjan. In this case, organisational aspects of feeding should also be taken into account in order to get closer to the ideal value estimated/calculated by fodjan (for more on the calculation see below).
For each ration you create, a value “Milk yield per ration” is displayed in fodjan Pro, e.g. in the ration overview.
The theoretical milk quantities from energy and protein are also displayed in the app. These can be found in the “Overview” view of the corresponding ration.
In addition, the amount of milk from energy and from protein is calculated, i.e. the theoretically achievable amount of milk with the amount of protein or energy in the ration.
The total value for “milk yield per ration” is always the smaller (limiting) value, depending on whether protein or energy are limiting!
