io - the French Feed
Database is committed to the dissemination of reliable and comprehensive information about the chemical composition and nutritive value of
feedstuffs. It provides the composition and nutritional feed data for FeedBase.
It is the central hub of a network of 16 member organisations including compound feed manufacturers, raw material producers, R&D institutes and trade organisations. Most of
the data stored by the French Feed Database come from the network members’ laboratories,
the other source of data being the scientific literature.
Data include numerical values (such as protein content or poultry metabolisable
energy), samples descriptions (geographical and industrial provenance, sampling dates...),
methods of analysis and literature references.
The French Feed Database contains composition and nutritional data for more than 4500 raw materials and forages and 1000 parameters, for a total of more than 2.5 million data.
