The Auburn University Soil, Forage and Water Testing Laboratory conducts analysis for producers’ forage and feed samples. 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 normally within two weeks. The report includes name and e-mail of the Regional Extension agent or specialist for Animal Science and Forages.
