Not enough iron
Is it possible to not have enough iron in a diet? The hay I’ve been getting this year has been coming back with really low iron. Which usually I’m sure everyone would be happy to see, but when I’m doing my balancing it’s showing a lower ratio then 4 to 1 with copper. Before adding any supplements it’s at a 10 to 1 ratio, but when I add in my ration balancer to balance out the zinc, copper, and manganese it ends up dropping my ratio of iron to copper to 1.7 to 1. Should I not really worry about it since my calculations don’t really account for what iron she gets from other sources like her water?
