Paulraj, R and Ahamed Ali, S (1982) Proximate composition analysis of feeds. CMFRI Special Publication, 8 . pp. 1-9.



The chemical composition of the feed gives its potential nutritive value and hence, in the assessment of quality of a feed the proximate principles are first determined. The Weende proximate analysis system for analyzing animal feed includes the determination of moisture (dry matter) ether extract (crude fat) crude protein, ash, crude fibre and nitrogen free extract (NFE).
