A system for and method of determining a formulation for an animal feed having a customized heat increment value. The system can include an animal profile (310), an animal nutrient requirement profile (320), an evaluation criteria (340), and/or ingredient nutrient content profiles (330). The information contained in the profiles and criteria can be used to calculate a formulation (350) having a desirable heat increment value. The heat increment value can be used to maximize satisfaction of an evaluation criteria.
