Forage Testing


NIR Analysis: Hay, Haylage, CS, HM. Corn, SGS, TMR*, Pasture**

Price $13.00

Same day analysis for DM, CP, ADICP, ADF, NDF, NEl, TDN, Ca, P, K, Mg, NSC.
Soluble P on haylages, corn silage and pasture.
Fat and ash on most forage types.

*we recommend wet chem. minerals for TMR

**pastures require overnight drying

NIR is appropriate for fast accurate nutritional analyses of individual forages.
NIR is not available for commodity feeds or grains.

Wet Chemistry Analysis: all forages, feeds, and grains

Wet chemistry is a more precise nutritional analysis of forages and feeds, required for grains and feed commodities.

Analytical options for all feeds:
