Feed is the material that provides nutrients for animals under reasonable conditions, regulates physiological mechanisms, improves the quality of animal products, and does not have toxic or harmful effects on animals. Including soybeans, soybean meal, corn, fish meal, amino acids, miscellaneous meal, additives, whey powder, grease, meat and bone meal, cereals, sweet sorghum, and more than ten varieties of feed materials, that is, all edible substances provided to the animal.
Due to the different types of animals, there are naturally various types of feed. Feed Production Line can produce different types of feed to meet the needs of different animals. What is the most common animal feed? At present, there is no unified classification of feeds in the world. Here are a few common types of feeds.
Common types of feeds:
Dregs feed is divided into beer dregs, corn alcohol dregs, sugar beet dregs, and other different types of composition, according to the crude fiber content in the dry matter of the feed grade.
Hay is the grass or cultivated green fodder growing plant above-ground part in the unseeded before mowed down, by certain drying methods made of crude feed, is the most basic, the main feed for herbivores, is the necessary, storage feed for livestock herbivores.
Straw feed mainly refers to the sweet sorghum, corn, reeds, cotton, and other straw crushed and processed fiber feed, is the main feed for ruminants.
4, cake meal feed
Cake meal feed has high nutritional value, is often used in livestock breeding, can provide high-quality plant-derived protein for the growth and development of livestock. Commonly used cake meal feeds are mainly soybean cake meal, cottonseed cake meal, rapeseed cake meal, peanut cake meal, etc.
This type of feed is also prevalent, such as processed rice, wheat, barley, millet, soybeans, etc.
6, green feed
Green feed generally refers to green feed. Green feed is also called green feed, green feed. It refers to the fresh stems and leaves of plants that can be used as feed because of the rich chlorophyll and named.
These are a few of the more common types of feeds introduced for you, but in fact, there are a variety of feed types, and many are not mentioned. When choosing feeds, you can choose according to the characteristics of the type of animal. In the selection, the following principles should be followed.
The principles that should be followed in selecting feed:
1. Suitable feeding standards and feed ingredients list should be selected
The existing breeding standards in our country can be used by reference. If there are regional standards, the regional standards can be used. For example, domestic livestock and poultry species that do not have standards can also refer to foreign standards, and through breeding practices, the growth and development and production performance of livestock and poultry, etc. Reflect to modify as appropriate and use flexibly.
2, Require diversification of feed, pay attention to feed palatability and toxic substances
To do a reasonable mix of various feeds to play a complementary role of various nutrients, to improve the ration’s utilization rate and nutritional value.
3, Control the crude fiber content and pay attention to the total accumulation of the diet
The dietary fiber of chickens should be controlled between 2%-5%, 4% for suckling piglets, 8% for growing and fattening pigs, and 12% for breeding pigs. A certain amount of dry matter must be contained in the compound feed grain so that the livestock and poultry can eat and be full and meet their nutritional needs.
4、Feed grain should be of high quality and low price, competitive in the market
It is necessary to consider user psychology and improve product quality. It is necessary to focus on publicizing economic benefits and appropriately emphasize input and output so that “maintenance” needs to be kept below one-third of the daily nutrient intake.
Nowadays, feeds sold in the market are generally processed by Feed Production Line, which can produce different kinds of feeds and produce high quality and healthy feeds to meet the needs of different animals, and is the best choice for making feeds.
