Cookie Policy 31 Days of Tips and Tricks-Day 16: Adding Feed Analyses - Agricultural Modeling and Training Systems, LLC

Importing feed analysis to the program is very easily done; many of the most commonly used labs are set up to email results in several file extensions at your request. Labs familiar with the program will be able to send your feed file as an .amts_fa file. After you have downloaded the file, open AMTS.Pro and select the farm you are importing the feed into.

Before you download the analysis from the Feed Lab, you will want to make certain you have a similar feed in the Farm Feedbank. This allows all the similar rates and minute analysis from the feed type to transfer into the model. This is done from the Feed Screen window.
