"NUTBAL" (Nutritional Balance Analyzer) Training Nutritional Workshops are conducted by the Grazing Lands Technology Institute throughout the year at various locations around the country, in cooperation with Texas A&M University. These 2-day workshops are designed to train agency personnel, cooperating ranchers, extension personnel and researchers in the use of the NUTBAL software when they work with landowners. NUTBAL is part of the FOCS Grazing Land Applications software that concerns the relationship between forage quality and animal well being.
