Nutrient loading calculator for in-field or extensive livestock winter feeding systems. Version 2.1

Description

This calculator was developed by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in consultation with technical experts from provincial agriculture departments in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The calculator is designed to help land managers plan detailed feed and cow management strategies to achieve an acceptable or target animal unit density per acre based on appropriate nutrient additions to the landscape. (ie. nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), and sulfur (S)) It can also be used as a record keeping tool of feed and cow management, and nutrient additions on specific sites.
