Use this Energy Requirement Calculator to calculate the daily energy and protein requirements for Angora goats. Enter the data into the table and then click the Calculate Energy and Protein Requirements button. The results will be displayed in the table at the bottom of the page. If an Angora doe is in the last 2 months of gestation, click on the Gestation Energy and Protein Requirement Calculator. The ME and MP requirements will then be added to the total requirement.

1. Choose maturity of the goat mature (> 1 year)
growing (≤ 1 year)
2. Choose gender of goat female or wether
intact male
3. Enter body weight (kg)
4. Enter tissue (non-fiber) gain (g/day)
5. Enter clean mohair fiber gain (g/day)
6.
Enter dietary ME concentration (MJ/kg DM)
or
You can use the TDN calculator below and the ME concentration will be entered automatically.

If an Angora doe is lactating, enter the data below:
11. Enter milk yield (kg)
12. Enter milk fat concentration (%)
13. Enter milk protein concentration (%)

The ME concentration can also be calculated with these simple formulas:
ME (MJ/kg) = TDN (%) × 0.15104 and
ME (Mcal/kg) = TDN (%) × 0.0361.
