Enter the total feed given (lbs) and the total animal weight gain (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Feed Conversion Rate.

## Feed Conversion Rate Formula

FCR = FG / AWG

Variables:

• FCR is the Feed Conversion Rate (lbs/lbs)
• FG is the total feed given (lbs)
• AWG is the total animal weight gain (lbs)

To calculate Feed Conversion Rate, divide the total feed given by the total animal weight gain.

## How to Calculate Feed Conversion Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Feed Conversion Rate.

1. First, determine the total feed given (lbs).
2. Next, determine the total animal weight gain (lbs).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = FCR = FG / AWG.
4. Finally, calculate the Feed Conversion Rate.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total feed given (lbs) = 5,000

total animal weight gain (lbs) = 200
