About what percent of the plant nutrients in feed fed to livestock is recovered in the manure?

This should have been yesterday's question, but apparently, I wasn't awake enough to realize I was posting it as a response rather than a new post. I really need to remember, coffee first, post second!

About eighty.

So that means the animal passes 80% of the nutrients it takes in---no wonder the proper feed ration balance is so important!
