Wrinkle: Value of Dakota Gold in Best-Cost Formulations
Research Summary In order to accurately determine if an ingredient still provides value, a nutritionist needs to consider what that ingredient provides to the diet. In some cases, an ingredient provides nutrients that more closely matches the animal’s requirements and as a result, provides more value in the formulation. In other cases, prices and availability of competing ingredients can either increase or decrease the value of that ingredient. Either way, careful evaluation to determine the value of an ingredient will provide benefits to the producer.
