Diet Formulation And Example Diets

Nutritionally complete diets for livestock can be formulated using calculators or elaborate computer programs. The NRC nutrient requirement series (15) give example methods for calculating complete diets. Because ruminant animals have fewer dietary requirements than monogas-tric animals, it is easier to formulate complete diets for these animals. A complex poultry diet may require balancing for 25 or more nutritional attributes.

The science of animal nutrition allows the formulation of complete diets from a multitude of feed ingredients. Therefore, there is not a best or ideal diet for any animal. Table 6 shows intakes per animal and example diets simply to illustrate what could be fed to these livestock.
