The use of total mixed rations (TMR) in the dairy industry provides dairymen with the ability to feed a blended, balanced ration. TMR rations are balanced for the particular requirements of a specific group of cows or calves. Several different options are available for types of equipment to mix TMR rations. These types of equipment include assorted designs for both portable and stationary mixers, different types of scales and various types of conveyors.
