feed and supplement formulas
Explanation:
"animal" isn't strictly necessary since we don't usually use "feed" as a noun for human food.

reference:
When we talk about nutrition and the development of ***feed and supplement formulas*** the industry has moved from “least” cost to “best” cost. Just because something is cheap does not make it the best.
