ABSTRACT

Feed represents a large percentage of the cost of production; therefore, ration formulation is a very important aspect of animal production. Diet formulation allows nutritionist to develop that can be eaten and utilized by the animal to provide an economically feasible level of production. For diets contain few feedstuffs and in which the nutritional parameters, such as energy and protein. Compound feed is mixtures of feed materials, for oral animal feeding in the form of complete or complementary feedstuffs. The present reviews covers information on ration formulation and how to prepare compound feed.
