Ration Balancing  05/02/14 2:44:40 PM

Sherwood Elevator personnel are trained to use the AAMPS ration balancing program to unlock your herds potential. AAMPS is an acronym for Amino Acids Metabolizable Protein System. There are several adjustments in the program based on forage digestibilty and maturity, micron size of processed grains, and  length of time for fermented forages. We believe in maximizing your forages and cutting down on the out of pocket expenses.
