Statistical Summary Guidelines
- The information contained in these tables represents cumulative statistics on samples analyzed and compiled by our laboratory. It is updated on an annual basis to continually broaden the scope of the database.
- Samples arriving at the lab are not always adequately described. Every attempt is made to place feeds in the most representative category.
- This is uncensored data and has not been screened for outliers or unusual results. View samples with low numbers of observations or unusual results with caution.
- Some feeds or components may have extremely large standard deviations, especially the minerals. This can be due to large variation in the population or a few outlier samples that skew the overall statistics. If the number of observations is small, view these statistics with caution.
- Any information from this summary that is used for publication must cite Equi-Analytical Laboratory Services as the source.
- When formulating rations, actual analyses should be used. Information contained in these tables is provided for reference and educational use. Equi-Analytical assumes no liability for feeding programs developed using these data.
- Equi-Analytical makes no claims regarding the accuracy or completeness of this data.
- All results are presented on a Dry Matter (DM) basis.
