International feed Source Form

A system for recording data on an "International Source Form" was first devised by Harris et al. (1968) and Harris (1970) . This form has been revised by INFIC so that data on additional attributes such as toxic constituents, fertilizer and pollution can be recorded.

Figure 1 illustrates one type of source form in use. Each INFIC Center may devise other source forms appropriate to their needs. The example source forms are used to record nutritional data about a feed. Items that may be recorded on the source form are outlined below. However, only those which are applicable to the particular feed sample are recorded (Figure 2 for example of completed source form).; Completed source forms are forwarded to regional INFIC Centres where the information is coded for entry into the databank. Each source form is designed so information may be punched directly into 80 column computer cards or onto magnetic tape. A description of information to be filled in for each area of the source form follows.

Fig. 1 International Source Form

Fig. 2. This is an illustration of source form to record only a few analyses where the sample is not described in detail. Also it shows how to record ratio values. The unit code factor will convert the ratio data to arginine as per cent of feed; acetic acid as % of feed; and butyric acid as % of feed, respectively.
