Cattle Water

Guest Editorial:What Else Could EPA be Hiding?

As many cattlemen and women know all too well, one of the greatest threats our industry faces is regulation from Washington, D.C.

TMR Corner:Evaluating TMR mixer performance: testing mix uniformity

As previously stated “the objective of feeding a total mixed ration (TMR) is to provide a consistently uniform mix, with the intended ingredient and nutrient composition, across the entire length of the feedbunk with every batch.” And while a number of factors such as ingredient variability and moisture content, consistency of mixing procedures, operator error, and weighing system variability contribute to batch-to-batch variation, it is the characteristics of the mixer itself that essentially control within batch variation, and uniformity across the feedbunk. In this article we will discuss TMR mixer characteristics that affect mix uniformity and a sieving technique that can be used to evaluate it and make adjustments to improve animal performance.
