Regulation 2(1) and Schedule 3

SCHEDULE 1METHOD OF CALCULATING THE ENERGY VALUE OF COMPOUND FEEDS

The energy value of compound poultry, ruminant and pig feeds shall be calculated in accordance with the relevant formulae set out below, on the basis of the percentages of certain analytical components of the feed. After application of these formulae, the results shall be given to one decimal place.

NB Where the results of analysis are to be given on a dry matter basis, this may be achieved by analysing either the dried material, or fresh material and correcting for the moisture content
(1)

Determined by the method of analysis for protein specified in Point 2 of Annex I to Third Commission Directive 72/199/EC, as last amended by Commission Directive 99/79/EC.

NB For pig feed the results must be corrected to 100% dry matter.
(2)

Determined by the appropriate procedure set out in the method of analysis for oils and fats specified in Part IV of the Annex to Second Commission Directive 71/393/EEC, as last amended by Commission Directive 98/64/EC.

NB In ruminant and pig feeds the results must be corrected to 100% dry matter.
(3)

Determined by the method of analysis for starch specified in Point 1 of Annex I to Third Commission Directive 72/199/EEC, as last amended by Commission Directive 99/79/EC.

(4)

Determined by the method of analysis for sugar specified in Point 12 of the Annex to First Commission Directive 71/250/EEC( ), as last amended by Commission Directive 1999/27/EC( ).

(5)

Determined by the method detailed in the booklet "Prediction of Energy Values of Compound Feeding Stuffs for Farm Animals" (originally published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Publications, now available from the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs under Reference No. PB1285).

(6)

Determined by the method of analysis for ash specified in Point 5 of the Annex to First Commission Directive 71/250/EEC, as last amended by Commission Directive 1999/27/EC.

NB The result must be corrected to 100% dry matter.

Poultry feeds: megajoules (MJ) of metabolisable energy (ME), nitrogen corrected, per kilogram of compound feed.

MJ of ME/kg of feed = 0.1551 × % protein(1) + 0.3431 × % oil(2) + 0.1669 × % starch(3) + 0.1301 × % total sugar (expressed as sucrose)(4).

Ruminant feeds: megajoules (MJ) of metabolisable energy (ME) per kilogram of dry matter in the compound feed.

MJ of ME/kg of dry matter = 0.14 × % Neutral detergent Cellulase plus Gamanase Digestibility(5) + 0.25 × % oil(2).

Pig feeds: megajoules (MJ) of digestible energy (DE) per kilogram of dry matter in the compound feed.

MJ of DE/kg of dry matter = 17.47 + 0.079 × % protein(1) + 0.158 × % oil(2) – 0.331 × % ash(6) – 0.140 Neutral Detergent plus Amylase Fibre(5)

CHAPTER B

1.  Where there is more than one group of nutritional characteristics indicated in Column 2 of Chapter A, denoted by “and/or”, for the same nutritional purpose, the feeding stuff may have either or both groups in order to fulfil the nutritional purpose specified in Column 1.

2.  Where a group of additives is mentioned in Column 2 or Column 4 of Chapter A, the additive(s) used must be authorised as corresponding to the specified essential characteristic.

3.  Where the source(s) of feed materials or of analytical constituents is/are required in Column 4 of Chapter A the manufacturer must make a specific declaration (i.e. specific name of the feed material(s), animal species or part of the animal) allowing the evaluation of conformity of the feeding stuff with the corresponding essential nutritional characteristics.

4.  Where the declaration of a substance, also authorised as an additive, is required by Column 4 of Chapter A and is accompanied by the expression “total”, the declared content must refer to, as appropriate, the quantity naturally present where none is added or the total quantity of the substance naturally present and the amount added as an additive.
