the cost of different feeds (Table 4), then based on selling price of milk (Table 4) determine the amount of milk that you need to sell to generate a daily 20% profit. Include the calculations in the Excel ä file.

- 4 - I am also providing the questions as a reference for you here (you can use them to check your calculations: 1. (30 points) Based on your calculations for Problem 1, which of the following is the correct Feeding Ration for the cow? a. Roughage [Alfalfa and Clover] - Concentrate [Corn and Barley] b. Roughage [Alfalfa and Silage] - Concentrate [Corn and Oats] c. Roughage [Alfalfa and Soybean] - Concentrate [Corn and Cottonseed] d. Roughage [Silage and Clover] - Concentrate [Oats and Barley] e. Roughage [Corn and Clover] - Concentrate [Alfalfa and Barley] 2. (10 points) What is the Nutritive Ratio of the Feeding Ration you found? 3. (20 points) Based on your calculations, what is the daily cost of feeding the cow? 4. (20 points) Given the expenditure for feeding the cow, and the price of milk (Table 4), how many gallons of milk a day you need to sell to produce a daily profit of 20%?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
