  • Concentrated Feed Formula for Beef Cattle

General rationing method for concentrated feeds with low cost at home or on cattle farms: mineral feeds contain bone meal, salt, baking soda, trace (major) elements, vitamin boosters, and generally account for 3% to 5% of the concentrated feed volume. The increase in bone meal for breeding dairy cattle is about 2% of the concentrate feed volume, and 0.5% to 1% for shelf cattle. The increase in dietary salt in winter, spring and autumn accounts for 0.5% to 0.8% of the concentrate feed, and in summer the increase accounts for 1% to 1.2% of the concentrate feed. When using wine lees as a primary roughage, baking soda should be added at 1% of the concentrate. When feeding other roughage to cattle, the amount of concentrate feed can be increased by 0.3% to 0.5% in summer.

  • Pre-Mixed Feed Formulations for Cattle

During the rapid growth period, beef cattle have a higher-than-normal demand for various nutrients. In the preparation of beef cattle concentrates based on maize and soybean meal, various trace elements, vitamins and amino acids are reasonably added to promote the digestion of the feed and the synthesis of protein in beef cattle, making them fatten faster.

  • Recommended Recipes for Cattle Fattening Feed

Intensive captive beef cattle fattening feed formulas include concentrated feed formulas and roughage formulas, as well as the proportions of ingredients and feed additives specified according to body weight and production goals. Farmers can adjust feed rationing formulas to suit their situation and determine the amount to feed according to the condition of their beef cattle.

Take 400kg cattle fattening feed formula as an example:
1. Concentrated feed formula: 60-67% maize, 20-30% soya bean meal, cotton meal, 5-17% bran, 1% baking soda, 5% high quality beef premix, 0.02% high quality beef fattening additive, 0.2% stomachic type additive
2. Roughage formula design: feed 17 kg corn stalks for silage, 10 kg wine lees, 5 kg bean curd residue or 18 kg bean curd residue, 14 kg wheat grass or 12 kg bean curd residue, 20 kg corn stalks for silage per day

Cattle need proper nutritional feed to maintain good health, better beef and milk production. Some important cattle feed ingredients include corn, wheat, soybeans and other grains, and grains are primarily considered the best cattle feed because of their high nutrient content such as protein, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and fiber. Grains are primarily considered the best feed for cattle because of their high nutrient content such as protein, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and fiber. Typically, wheat is added digestible source of nutrients added to cattle feed ingredients to maintain proper digestion processes. (Read more: animal feed making machine price>>)

In addition to easy storage and low cost, the advantages of pelletizing include the following:
  • Protein, energy and minerals for optimal growth and feed conversion
  • Rapid weight gain and efficient feed conversion
  • Pellets are ready to eat; no additional labor is required to roll or mix the ration
  • Low dust: Reduced dust inhalation for a safer, healthier and more enjoyable workplace for both humans and cows.
  • A safer, healthier and more enjoyable workplace for both humans and cows.

Main Process in a Cattle Feed Pellets Processing Business Plant

  • Material selection: Choose materials and suitable additives that provide the different nutrients required by the animal. In addition, the amount of each material should be strictly based on your designed cattle feed formula.
  • Crushing: The material is crushed into a powdered material by means of a feed hammer mill.
  • Mixing: The crushed material is mixed well with a feed mixer.
  • Pelleting: In this step, material modulation and control of physical conditions are crucial to the quality of the pellets. Heat, time and quantity of water and steam are important factors for pelleting. The diameter of the feed pellet mill and the thickness of the die also affect the quality of the pellets, the relative hardness of the pellets and the output of the pellet mill.
  • Cooling: You don't really have to make your own pellet feed, small capacities can allow the pellets to cool naturally. But for relatively high productivity, a pellet cooler is very useful and can save farmers a lot of time.
