Herbivore Dino Daily Food Consumption

Does anyone know of an equation to calculate the daily food consumption
(measured in kilograms) of a herbivorous dino based on its mass? G. Paul
(1988) gives one for endothermic predators: F = 0.11(W)**0.75, where F
equals mass in kilograms of raw meat and W equals the mass of the critter.
