Feeding methods for cattle fattening
Cattle breeding is a relatively developed breeding project in my country. With the development of science and technology, the phenomenon of using cattle to cultivate fields is less and less. Therefore, most of the current cattle breeding direction is to go to beef cattle, so how to improve the fatness of cattle is the most concerned issue for farmers now. To increase the fatness of the cattle can improve their own economic interests and allow themselves to obtain the greatest benefits. So how do you feed for effective weight gain? Let's take a look with me below!
1. Feed mix
Matching a reasonable feed is the key to ensuring fat gain, but many farmers do not have a correct feed mix method. Feeding is also based on your own mood and intuition. In fact, this feeding method will have a certain impact on the growth of cattle. It will not only lead to malnutrition in cattle, but also waste feed, so when we feed the feed, we should mix feed reasonably according to the growth and feeding conditions of cattle. The feed should contain different proportions of concentrate and coarse feed, and the ratio of the two feeds should be adjusted according to the growth stage of the cattle.
2. Do not feed clinker
Most farmers have a very bad habit, which is to cook all kinds of feed before feeding them. Because I am afraid that the cows can't digest it, in fact, the digestive system of cows is very powerful. It is a ruminant system that can digest various feeds well. Cooking the feed not only increases the cost of its own breeding, but also leads to the loss of nutrients in the feed after cooking. And may lead to cattle poisoning, but also hinder the growth of cattle. However, when feeding legumes, it needs to be heated before feeding, because legumes contain an anti-nutritional factor that will have a certain impact on the digestion of cattle.
3. Regular quantitative
When feeding the feed, it should be regularly quantified, and the feeding amount and feeding time should not be changed arbitrarily, so that the cattle can form a similar eating hi-light with humans. This can not only promote the appetite of cattle and speed up the growth of cattle, but also improve the conversion rate of feed and reduce the cost of feed. Cattle in the fattening period need to be fed three times a day, generally once in the morning, noon and evening, and the proportion of each feeding is allocated according to the different time periods. The feeding interval is controlled at about 5-7 hours, so that the cattle have enough time to rest and digest, which is more conducive to gaining weight.
4. Feeding method
There are three feeding methods of feed, generally dry feeding, wet feeding and thin feeding. Each feeding method has its own advantages and disadvantages, which are mainly determined by various factors such as weather changes and growth conditions. Dry feeding saves time and effort, but consumes a large amount of saliva in the cow's body and will have a certain impact on digestion. Dilute feeding is actually not conducive to the increase of cattle, because thin feeding mixes a lot of water in the feed. Although it looks full, it digests very quickly and absorbs very little nutrients. The best feeding method 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 the growth of cattle.
The above four points are the feeding methods to effectively increase the fatness of cattle. It is necessary to pay attention not to cook the feed and feed it. I have also mentioned the specific reasons. You can use the wet feeding method, mix the feed with the corresponding water, and squeeze the water droplets by hand. Do not overdo it, too much will become a thin feed. That's all for today's introduction. Thank you for your reading and support.
