CowBytes is an easy-to-use beef ration balancing software package. It allows you to balance for all the major nutrients and most of the micro-nutrients. The program calculates the nutrient values of the rations based on the amount of each feed selected.

CowBytes also allows you to combine ration information with management and economics. This makes it a decision-making tool for cattle producers or a teaching tool for an agricultural college or university.

CowBytes is compatible with Microsoft XP, Vista and Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating systems.
There are several programs that will run Cowbytes 5 on Mac computers. These include Boot Camp, Parallels, VMware Fusion and Crossover by Codeweavers. These programs are commercially available and cost from $49.95 to $79.99.
