A BROILER CONSUMED 6.0KG OF FEED AND GAINED 2.0KG WEIGHT IN SIX WEEKS. DETERMINE THE FEED : GAIN RATIO

  • A. 1:3
  • B. 1:4
  • C. 3:1 ✓
  • D. 4:1

 

To determine the feed : gain ratio for the given scenario, we need to calculate the ratio of feed consumed to the weight gained by the boiler.

Given:

Feed consumed = 6.0 kg

Weight gained = 2.0 kg

Feed : Gain Ratio = Feed consumed / Weight gained

Substitute the values:

Feed : Gain Ratio = 6.0 kg / 2.0 kg = 3:1
