No short cuts
have been
taken and no
compromises
made.
Formulate2
implements all
aspects of the
NRC 2001
model.
Full NRC 2001 Compliance
With full NRC
2001 compliance,
your formulation
results are what
you expect them
to be.

Conventional Least Cost Optimization
With no entries in any tag column field, Formulate2 performs
conventional least cost formulations.
Click Here
Tagged Group Least Cost Optimization
All items marked in the tag field will be treated as a cost group and the
objective at optimization time will be to minimize the total cost of the group.
To tag a feed item, click on the tag field and press any key.
Click Here
Powerful Amino Acid Constraint Options
Constrain AAs as a percentage of Metabolizable Protein…
…and in ratio to one another.
Click Here
Fully User Controlled Constraint Binding
User minimums and
maximums override NRC
minimums and maximums
on all constraints.
You have complete control
over constraint enforcement at
optimization time. Only items
marked in the Bind field will be
enforced. To bind a constraint,
click on its bind field and press
any key.
Click Here
Premix Least Costing
After selecting the feeds for the premix
from the ration solution, their combined
analysis is placed on the Feed Clipboard
then imported into the ration record with
this menu option. The constraints are
then bound.
Click Here
Premix Least Costing
Once the constraints are set, select
Solve 3x Values from the Formulate
menu and a linear optimization
based on the 3x static coefficients
will be performed.
Click Here
Optional User Constraint Typing
Formulate2 allows you to create alternate ways of
describing your nutrient constraints by giving you the
option of defining user types for individual nutrients
Click Here
Optional User Constraint Typing
The types you define are available by clicking
on the Type column and selecting from the
drop down list the type you wish to use.
Click Here
User Defined Nutrients
You can add nutrients to
the nutrient list or edit
existing nutrient items.
Each time you make a
change in the nutrient list,
Formulate2 automatically
updates its tables to
implement the changes.
Nutrient items that are
specific to the NRC 2001
model or have other
special functions cannot
be edited or deleted.

User Defined Reports
You can create reports the
way you want them with the
Report Formatter. In fact,
the standard report set
provided with Formulate2
was created with the Report
Formatter. You can change
the reports in the standard
report set, create you own
reports or mix and match –
any way you want it.
