    1. Name: The common name for the grazing, i.e., Night Feed, or AM, or 24 hour, etc
    2. Timeframe: The start and end time of the feed slot. The format is HH:MM:AM/PM
    3. Cycle: Leave this as '1' for 24 hour feed slots, or twice a day grazing.
    4. Amount: The computer uses this percentage to calculate the amount of feed required for the feed slot.
