In this study we presented generalized exponential power distribution as an alternative to normal distribution commonly used in the analysis of agricultural data. The distribution which is more robust in modeling because of the present of shape parameters, which regulates it tails. Some of its mathematical and statistical properties are examined. The application of the probability density function is demonstrated in fitting poultry feeds data. The goodness-of-fit test was carried to show that it is a better substitute to normal distribution in applications.
