proximate analysis
a chemical method of assessing and expressing the nutritional value of a feed. It divides each feed into six categories and states the percentage of each that is present in the feed:
(1) water (or dry matter).
(2) total or crude protein (total nitrogen×6.25).
(3) fat (or ether extract).
(4) ash (minerals).
(5) crude fiber (incompletely digested carbohydrates).
(6) nitrogen-free extract (readily digestible carbohydrate).
