National Animal Nutrition Program (NANP) Feed Composition Database

This database was developed by the Feed Composition Sub-Committee and serves as a freely-available, centralized resource for up-to-date nutrient composition data for feedstuffs commonly fed to animal species. There are currently 123 ingredients and 129 nutrients represented in the database with the following categories:

  • Animal Proteins
  • By-products and Others
  • Forages, Grain Crops
  • Forages, Legumes and Grasses
  • Grain Products
  • Oilseeds and Plant Proteins
  • Minerals
  • Fats and Oils

Feed and Ingredient Information is presented as Tables of chemical composition and nutritional value for an extensive list of feed nutrient constituents. The tables include Nutrient, Mean, Number of Samples (n), Standard Deviation (SD), Coefficient of Variation (CV), and 10th / 90th Percentile values for Energy and Mineral components.
