Abstract

Many feed industries in various parts of the country have been producing and marketing
different types of compound feeds. The source of feed ingredients also varies greatly which will
ultimately lead to the variation in the quality of finished products. Altogether 493 samples of 50
different feed ingredients and compound feed were collected from Baglung, Baitadi, Banke,
Chitwan, Darchula, Dolakha, Dolpa, Gorkha, Ilam, Jhapa, Kathmandu, Kaski, Lalitpur,
Lamjung, Morang, Mahottary, Makwanpur, Myagdi, Nawal Parasi, Parbat, Parsa, Rasuwa,
Rupandehi, Sankhuwasava, Sunsari, Saptari, Sarlahi, Sindhupalchok, Siraha, Syangja and
Tanahun districts. Highest content of dry matter (99.51%), organic matter (98.45%), total ash
(98.14%) and crude protein (67.85%) was recorded for oyster cell, white maize grain, oyster cell
and meat meal respectively. Similarly, the rice husk was found to be superior in crude fibre
content (34.46%) In terms of mineral oyster cell was found to be superior in calcium content
(35.94%) and bone meal in phosphorous content (1.59%) as compared to other feed ingredients.

Key words: Crude fibre; crude protein; dry matter; feed ingredients; organic matter; total ash
