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.

- First, determine the total feed given (lbs).
- Next, determine the total animal weight gain (lbs).
- Next, gather the formula from above = FCR = FG / AWG.
- Finally, calculate the Feed Conversion Rate.
- 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
