Hi all! I've been wanting to mix my own feed at home, so I made a web tool to help design feed mix recipes, calculate nutritional information, and to visually compare my mix to "recommended values" or the values of pre-packaged feeds. I found a few other feed calculators online, but none of them were comprehensive enough (only calculating for, say, protein and that's it), and I felt like this should exist already.
Anyway, I just put it online, and wanted to share the link for a few reasons:
- I'm not an expert in poultry nutrition. I've double checked my calculations... but do these numbers look right?
- Feedback makes it better! Is there a functionality that would make it more useful? Did I leave out a common ingredient? Is the interface clumsy or confusing?
- I hope it helps others. To me, figuring out nutrition has been "hard" and I wanted to build something that other people could use, that might help them as much as this community has helped me.
I'm only sharing this here, since it's version 1.0 and may have (many?) bugs, but I'd love to hear what you guys think. Thanks much!
