My biggest fear has always been that i would develop a tool that didn t fit the task

My biggest fear has always been that I would develop a tool that didn’t fit the task

and/or was so complicated that it required more investment by the user than the value they perceived they gained


The process
The Process that didn’t fit the task

  • A recognized need

  • Develop a methodology to answer the need

  • Create the tool using the methodology

  • Test and validate the tool

  • Release the tool for use

  • Use the feedback from the use to continue to improve and develop the tool


The recognized needs
The recognized needs that didn’t fit the task

  • Deciding which feed is the best buy, depending on how I will use the feed ( energy, protein or DM source) (FCC)

  • How many cows can be grazed on a specific corn field and/or for how long depending on their size (CSC)


The tools
The Tools that didn’t fit the task

  • The feed cost (FCC) and the corn stalk (CSC) “Cow-Q-Lators”

    • Both have come from a recognized need

    • Both are very practical in there application

    • Both contain information that is commonly needed and highly useful

    • Both are simple to apply and easy too learn


The fcc
The FCC that didn’t fit the task

  • Answers three questions at three levels

    • Establishes feed cost considering transportation, storage and feeding cost and efficiency

    • Provides a comparisons among costs for 4 feeds at a time

    • Calculates feed needs based on time, feeds and ration fed


The csc
The CSC that didn’t fit the task

  • Can be used to calculate field rental rates or cost estimates of cattle based on

    • Animal size

    • Acres available

    • Number of animals

    • Management parameters

    • Corn yield
