Feeding methods for increasing fat in cattle
Cattle breeding is a relatively developed breeding project in China. With the development of science and technology now, the phenomenon of using cattle for farming is becoming less and less. So now most of the direction of raising cattle is towards beef cattle, so how to increase the fat of cattle is the most concerned issue of farmers. Only by adding fat to cattle can we improve our economic interests and maximize our benefits. So how to feed it if you want to increase fat effectively? Let’s take a look with the editor below!
1. Feed mix
A reasonable mix of feeds is the key to increase fat, but many farmers do not have a correct way to mix feeds. When feeding the feed, it is also based on your own mood and intuition. In fact, this feeding method will have a certain impact on the growth of the cattle. It will not only cause malnutrition in the cattle but also waste feed, so when we feed the feed, we must match the feed reasonably according to the growth and eating situation of the cattle. The feed should contain different ratios of concentrate and coarse feed. Adjust the ratio of the two feeds according to the growth stage of the cattle.
2. Avoid feeding clinker
Most farmers have a very bad habit of cooking various feeds before putting them in. Because I am afraid that cattle cannot digest, the digestive system of cattle is actually very powerful. It is a ruminant system that can digest various feeds well. Cooking the feed not only increases its own breeding cost, but also causes the loss of nutrients in the feed after cooking. And it may lead to cattle poisoning, but it also hinders the increase of cattle fat. However, when feeding legumes, you need to heat them before feeding, because legumes contain an anti-nutritional factor that will have a certain impact on the digestion of cattle.
3. Regular quantification
The feed should be quantified on a regular basis, and the amount and time of the feed should not be changed at will, so that the cattle should be similar to humans in eating and happy. This can not only promote the appetite of the cattle and accelerate the growth of the cattle, but also increase the conversion rate of feed and reduce feed costs. Cattle in the fattening period need to be fed three times a day, usually once in the morning, midnight and evening, and the proportion of each feed is allocated according to the different time periods. The interval between each feeding is controlled at about 5-7 hours, so that the cattle have enough time to rest and digest, which is more conducive to gaining fat.
4. Feeding method
There are three feeding methods for feed, generally dry feeding, wet feeding and thin feeding. Each feeding method has its own advantages and disadvantages, which are mainly determined according to various factors such as weather changes and growth conditions. Dry feeding saves time and effort, but it needs to consume a lot of saliva in the cow's body and will have a certain impact on digestion. Dilute feeding is actually not conducive to the increase in fat of cattle, because thin feeding mixes a lot of water in the feed. Although it looks full, it is digested very fast and absorbs very little nutrients. The best way of feeding is wet feeding. Wet feeding is to add an appropriate amount of water to the feed without exceeding the amount of the feed, which enhances the taste of the feed and improves the conversion rate of the feed. It is very beneficial to increase the fat of cattle.
The above four points are the feeding methods to effectively increase the fat of the cattle. It is necessary to pay attention not to cook the feed and feed it. I have also said the specific reasons. You can use the wet feeding method to mix the feed with the corresponding water, grab it with your hands and squeeze the water droplets out. Don't overdo it, it becomes a thin feed. That's it for today's introduction. Thank you for your reading and support. For more information, please continue to follow us!
