Accuration

i was thinking about using accuration in a self feeder and posibility grinding it myself. and my question was if i do a 80/20 ration when grinding it would that be 80% corn and 20% accuration. im horrible on math somebody correct me if im wrong. so if i grinded 2 ton of corn i would need 800 lb of ration right? any thoughts about if they tried this i would like to hear about thanks.

I can't comment on how the ration works, I've never tried it. But I can help you on your math.

80/20 would equate to 800 lbs corn and 200 pounds of accuration for each 1000 pounds of mix. So if you wanted 2 tons of feed, that would be 4000 pounds total feed with 3200 pounds of corn and 800 pounds of accuration. 4000 pounds (2 ton) of corn would take 1000 pounds of accuration to maintain the 80/20 mix.

In general, take the amount of total feed you want, multiply by .8 for corn and multiply by .2 for accuration.
