The ‘Feed cost calculator’ is an internet based tool developed by NSW Department of Primary Industries that can be used to compare the value of feeds on an energy and crude protein basis.

  • Select a range of common feeds and view estimated values for energy, protein and dry matter
  • Change these values if you have obtained your own feed test values
  • Enter a price per tonne for up to four different feeds

The program then calculates the value of the feed on an energy and crude protein basis.

The user can also examine the energy, protein and cost results of any combination of up to four selected feeds.
