When calculating feed rations of farm animals must use a considerable amount of reference material. This includes information about the characteristics of feed and animal feed regulations. It is proposed to keep this information in a database, which is formed by means of spreadsheet MS Excel. The database contained in several tables. The database structure provides for the following tables: Table reference database on feed; Table working database; Table feed additives; Table database on animal nutrition standards; a table listing the maximum permissible limits content of feed in the diet of animals. Table reference database is protected against accidental changes and serves as a benchmark from which to copy the information if necessary to table a working database. Working table can update the database, it makes a change for each feed that derived from laboratory analysis of content in the feed nutrients. The system includes the estimated table, which is intended to form the ration feeding the animals some sex-age groups of the proposed algorithm. The user can set content in the diet of each type of food as a percentage of the total dietary intake. This previously estimated in the table with the help of macros entered information from the database table rules of nutrition for the animal and information about the maximum content of each feed in the ration calculations.
