One embodiment of the invention relates to a system for generating optimized values for variable inputs to an animal production system. The system includes a simulator engine configured to receive a plurality of animal information inputs and generate a performance projection, wherein at least one of the animal information inputs is designated as a variable input. The system further includes an enterprise supervisor engine that is configured to generate an optimized value for the at least one variable input based on at least one optimization criteria and an animal feed formulation.
