Feedipedia – open access resource on livestock feeds

The The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and partners recently launched an open access encyclopedia of animal feed resources that provides information, in the form of ‘Feed datasheets’, on nature, occurrence, distribution, chemical composition, nutritional value and safe use of nearly 1400 livestock feed resources.

The main objective of Feedipedia is to provide extension and development workers, planners, project formulators, livestock farmers, science managers, policy makers, students and researchers with the latest scientific information to help them identify, characterize and properly use feed resources to sustainably develop the livestock sector.
