As a cattle and sheep farmer, do you think a single fodder is better? Is compound feed better?
With the continuous development of the breeding industry, the feed for cattle and sheep is not limited to forage, especially in the northern central plains, where the source of forage is relatively scarce, so some cattle and sheep farmers will use compound feed to feed cattle and sheep. But there are also cattle and sheep farmers who think: "If cattle and sheep do not eat grass, is it really good to eat compound feed?" Some experts have also put forward their own suggestions. Let's take a look:
1. The compound feed expands the source of feed, and also increases the selectivity of cattle and sheep farmers, and at the same time supplements sufficient nutrition for cattle and sheep.
We have always emphasized that to control production costs during the breeding process, farmers should adapt to local conditions according to the location of the breeding site. If the breeding farm is far from the forage collection site, they can choose self-prepared compound feed, such as straw commonly found in the field. The pellet feed made of raw materials such as grains, grains, etc. not only saves the cost of pulling forage for long distances, but also increases the comprehensiveness of nutrition for poultry and livestock, and can also reduce production input.
2. Reduce production input and labor costs, and self-prepared compound feed is safer and more reliable
A small feed pellet unit can easily complete the processing of several hundred kilograms of pellet feed with the operation of about two people. However, if it is forage, it needs to be screened. The fresh and tender can be fed directly, but the more serious lignification needs to be fermented. Feeding afterwards will increase the labor cost. Straws and thin tree trunks with serious lignification can be made into batches through small pellet units, and the collection of self-configured feed materials are selected by themselves, so when they are used for poultry and livestock, they will be more assured.
3. Appropriate additives, vitamins, etc. can be added to the compound feed
In the process of making compound feed, you can choose to add vitamins or appropriate amounts of additives. The pellet feed can effectively prevent picky eaters from poultry and livestock, and the pellet feed made can increase the chewing time of cattle and sheep, and help cattle and sheep more Good digestion and internal maturation of pellet feeds can also reduce the risk of illnesses in cattle and sheep and ensure that every animal gets sufficient nutrients.
