Calculate the required amount per kg of feed
In order to provide the required amount of active substance per kg of medicated feed based for a number of calves, the premix has to be incorporated into the feed according to the formula :
Formula for Inclusion Rate
|Number of mg of Chloromed per kg of feed =||[ (Number of mg of Chloromed per kg bodyweight per day) x (Average bodyweight of animals in kg)]|
|Average daily feed intake in kg per animal per day|
mg per kg is equivalent to g per tonne
