The dials are currently calculated to the following values:
 
Protein: Below average: <22%; Average 22-30%, Above average: >30%

Fat: Below average: <10%; Average 10-18%, Above average: >18%

Fibre: Below average: <2.5%; Average 2.5-4%, Above average: >4%

Ash: Below average: <7%; Average 7-10%, Above average: >10%

Protein: Below average: <20%; Average 20-30%, Above average: >30%
