Press the Feed on Offer icon at the bottom of the page, or tap the More button at the bottom right of the screen and select the Feed on Offer tile.
Enter the Date that the FOO was recorded as well as the Current Feed on Offer. You can do this manually or use the Estimate by Height button. This allows you to estimate dry matter by vegetation height. Simply choose the pasture height and corresponding kg DM/ha then select Ok.
