Feed Tables and Nutrient Requirements

Finnish feed evaluation system includes Feed Tables, equations to calculate the feed energy and protein values and nutrient requirements. The animal species covered include ruminants (cattle, sheep and goats), pigs, poultry (chicken and turkeys), fur animals (fox and mink) and horses.

These pages contain the basis of calculation the  Finnish feed values and farm animals’ nutrient requirements.

Feed Tables include the list of chemical composition and feed values and the concentrations of  minerals and amino acids of commonly used feeds, i.e. reference feeds. They can be found in Luke’s Database for Research Results.
