Please note:  Items not associated with a package will incur a  $6.00 Base Fee for handling.

Standard Analysis
The Standard Analysis includes tests for Dry Matter, Crude Protein, Unavailable Protein (haylages only), Adjusted Protein, Soluble Protein, Degradable Protein (calculated for forages only), Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF), Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF), Ash, NFC, (Energy Values on forages only) TDN, NEL, NEM, NEG, RFV (on hays and haylages - not corn silage), and Calcium (Ca), Phosphorus (P), Magnesium (Mg), Potassium (K), Sodium (Na), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu) with pH analysis on an ensiled silage.

CPM Plus Analysis

The CPM Plus Analysis starts with the Standard Analysis and adds Lignin, Fat, ADFCP, NDFCP, Chloride, Sulfur, Starch and Sugar. When combined with our Fermentation Analysis a Soluble Fiber is calculated.

RFV Report Analysis
The RFV (Relative Feed Value) Report option provides results for Dry Matter, Moisture, Crude Protein, ADF, NDF and calculated RFV (on hays and haylages - not corn silage), Adjusted Protein, NEL, NEM, NEG, and TDN.

Mineral Analysis Package

This package must be run on all minerals mixes, mineral ingredients, and high mineral content supplements. High levels of minerals require special procedures and handling to provide more accurate analytical results.
