About the Feed Composition Database
The Feed Composition 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. Proper acknowledgment of this resource via citation is mandatory, regardless of the context. Following is information about the agreement in which you are entering when using the NANP resource, along with the citation template, and a video tutorial highlighting the various features of the Feed Composition Database.
Memorandum of Agreement
The National Animal Nutrition Program (NANP) feed composition database(s) have been developed to support research, teaching, outreach, industry, and government use. The NANP welcomes requests to use in its entirety, or in part, the composition database; however, all requests must be made to the NANP Feed Composition Committee and approved by the Coordinating Committee. Dissemination of results or technologies developed using the database must acknowledge NANP and the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM; see below). Republishing of the ingredient database in its entirety, or in part is prohibited.
Disclaimer: The feed ingredient database used in this project was developed jointly by the National Animal Nutrition Program (NANP) and the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). Activities of the NANP are funded through support by the National Research Support Program-9. The activities of NANP and the feed ingredient database are available at https://animalnutrition.org.

How to Use the Feed Composition Database
Ingredient information in the database is accessible either by selecting an ingredient within a category or via the search function. After selecting an ingredient, there exists the ability to further refine the records that are returned through a series of filters. The resulting nutrient concentrations are summarized in tables below the data filter header and can be printed for offline use. A visual tutorial for the complete functionality of the Feed Composition Database can be found below.
