The Auburn University Soil, Forage & Water Testing Laboratory conducts analysis for producers’ forage and feed samples. These samples are routinely analyzed for percent moisture, crude protein, acid detergent fiber, neutral detergent fiber, nitrate-N, ash, pH, crude fat, lignin, total digestible nutrients (TDN), and elemental contents (Ca, K, Mg, P, Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn, etc.,) Relative forage quality (RFQ) will be provided for known common grass species when the analysis are done using near infrared reflectance (NIR). The turnaround time is two to four weeks. The report includes the name and email of the Animal Science and Forages regional Extension agent or specialist in the area.
