    Rations are one of the most critical aspects of feeding cattle. With Performance Beef, you can edit rations quickly before feeding for the day. If your nutritionist is interested in helping you keep your rations updated, see the Share Your Account article for more information. 

    As new cattle enter the feedlot, or if existing groups need to move onto their next phase, the edit ration feature will allow you to change the ingredients, as fed (or dry matter) percentage, order of ingredients and name of a ration. Along with these options, you are able to set your ration based on either As Fed or Dry Matter percentages as well as pounds per head ingredients. For more information on how pounds per head ingredients will affect your ration, see the Creating Rations article.
