To continue where we left off we covered the VERY BASICS of feed formulation, what you can use , and the very basic math behind this.
I AM NOT A ROCKET SCIENTIST. THIS IS DESIGNED TO BE A PRACTICAL AND EXPEDIENT AND MOST OF ALL SIMPLE WAY TO MAKE FEEDS.
Cost cutting (Silage)
What if I told you that you could cut 1/3 of your cost on feeds based on things you more than likely have in your back yard or nearby.
Before you make Silage you should wash your vegetables to ensure that there are no possible chemical residues. This is the process I was taught.
Wash your vegetables thoroughly in water.
Then soak in a large tub add 500g salt for 5- 10 minutes.
Drain and WASH THOROUGHLY then chop.
Silage is a great way to add variety to your food and cut cost. To make silage we would use:
- 1 1/2 kilo Kang Kong
- 1 1/2 kilo Banana Trunk
- 3 kilos added together
- 1 kilo molasses or muscavado
Chop then add sugar then mix liberally EASY AS THAT.
Now you have a way to cut 30% of the feeds you use and it also is healthy for your animals and offers a taste variety.
And this is why it does not matter if your measurements are even as long as you proportioned your nutritional elements proportioned proper.
For areas that have issues with acquiring protein sources for your animals, I reccomend ipil ipil, madre de agua, madre de cacao, or napier grass can be a great way to add protein to your animals’ diet if your area is lacking in that aspect.
