When a solution is selected, the following is visible on the Optimum Feeds tab on the right.
The tables at the top show a comparison of the results obtained by the broiler model using first the base feeds (as originally defined in WinFeed) and then the feeds recommended by the optimiser. In the above two examples a high and low value was assigned to the revenue achieved. As can be seen, the higher valued revenue (top graph) calls for a higher lysine level in the starter.
The graph is not shown for feeding period solutions. For nutrient density solutions it shows the objective function against AMEn values in each feed. For amino acid content solutions, it shows the objective functions against lysine in each feed. Although it is not possible to represent a multi-dimensional problem as a two-dimensional graph, this graph is a powerful tool for determining the likely range where the best solution could lie, as well as the success of a particular solution.

This tab is used to export the optimum feed specifications to WinFeed. This facility allows you to choose which feeds to export, and to enter new names for each feed.
