Feedstuffs are ordered periodically and kept on site. These include hay, grain, and other supplements. Currently, there is no complete and organized record of individual diets, inventory, and feed usage. At the end of each month, the amount of inventory left is counted by hand and compared to the estimated feed usage.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
