OSU Cowculator is a Windows based Computer software program designed to assist cattlemen in making informed decisions associated with beef cownutrition. Animal criteria (such as cow weight, body condition, stage ofproduction and breed), as well as the feed and forage library can be customized to each operation or to specific scenarios within an operation. Animal requirements and performance predictions are based on years of research data,including the 1996 and previous versions of the National Research Council's Nutrient Requirements of Beef Cattle.
