Why entering feedstuff prices? – Cost ratios in fodjan

In addition to the health evaluation of feeding, you can also use fodjan to keep an eye on the economy of feeding.

In fodjan, you should therefore enter the feedstuff price for each feedstuff that you include in the stock. In this way, various economic parameters (e.g., cost of ration or IOFC) can be calculated automatically for the rations and are available to you for viewing the cost situation of your feeding.

If you select a feed group in fodjan Pro under Rations > Overview, the costs per animal & day for the individual rations are given for each ration under “Costs”.

These are also displayed to you, for example, in the ration calendar on the “Scheduling” page.

If you now select a ration, the following values will be displayed at the bottom right under the table:

Note: To ensure that the actual values for your farm are displayed here, you should have entered the milk price into the farm settings.
