help figuring percentage of protien

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay, here is my think. I'm wanting to use some grain and stuff in with my commercial feed, I'm mixing 3 to 4 bags and I know the metzer feed calculator is out there but I'm looking more for some that I can tell it I hag 50 lbs of 28% 50 lbs of 20% and 100lbs of 12% and it tell me a percentage.... is that out there? Ive been looking but not found anything.

Edited to add: okay here is a miss understanding. I'm not asking what that mix gives me... I KNOW that I went through all sorts of cr....stuff to figure it out. I want to know if here is an app, or webpage or seething that can plug 4 or 5 or more amounts and %'s and have it give me the protien % instantly. No math by me required.

I'm a Dog trainer... I do Dog Agility... then I got the crazy idea to try herding so I've gotten ducks and some chicks for eggs... and now I may end up doing shows with them too... yes... I have lost my mind.

Oh and did I mention I do vehicle decals (right now it's mostly dog designs) and lettering... and Tshirt's and coaster sets and decorative tiles... hey I've been out of a regular job...

It's 18% protein.

I agree with Chris09

 

50lbs  28%

50lbs  20%

50lbs  12%

50lbs  12%

       =  72

 

72 / 4 = 18%

Hmm the post where I said that wasn't my question (id already figured that out) didn't show up. I want to know if someone has a webpage, or spreadsheet or app that will let you plug in the weights and proteins and it tells you in one step. I used metzers feed mixer but you can onlu pint in one weight and 2 proteins and then tell it what end protien you want. I wants something that I can plug in the weights and proteins of 4, 5 or more different ones. Surely someone has something!
