A feed formulation model has been developed using Microsoft excel package. This excel – assisted feed formulation model has been developed by use of simple arithmetic. It is user-friendly and does not require complex or repeated calculations at different levels, or when feed ingredients are changed. It only requires the cueing-in of ingredients and their required quantities. This, on a click shows the new protein and energy levels. It therefore implies that, one keeps adjusting the nutrient quantities until the required protein and energy levels are met. A feed management model is also been developed. The model gives an estimate of feed requirements of birds at various ages. It estimates total feed and cost of feed required, thus a least cost approach as it saves cost from feed wastage.
Key words: Excel assisted, feed formulation, feed management, user-friendly, ingredients, protein and energy levels.
