Technical Abstract: The Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System (CNCPS) is a feed evaluating system that was developed from basic principles of ruminal function, microbial growth, feed digestion and passage, and animal physiology. By balancing nutritional requirements with the supply of nutrients from feeds in the diet, it was possible to predict the growth and milk production of cattle and nutrient excretion. The CNCPS has been used as a farm management tool to construct cropping plans, optimize on "home grown" feed production, decrease the need for purchased supplements, optimize herd size and improve the annual return over feed cost.
