Recommendations for choosing compound feed

The composition of the combined feed. Despite the variety of compound feeds, they are made from a specific set of nutrients.

  1. The main component is grain, which is a source of carbohydrates. Its share in compound feed can reach 85%.
  2. Legumes are added to the formula to enrich the feed with protein. The concentration of peas, soybeans, lupine or chickpeas reaches 45%.
  3. Oilcakes and meal of sunflower, rapeseed and soybeans become an important component in compound feed. They are high in carbohydrates and amino acids. These ingredients account for up to 25% in compound feed.
  4. Manufacturers add small amounts of ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and food waste.

Types of compound feed. Experts distinguish between several categories of combined feed.

  1. The complete composition allows you to fully provide animals and birds with a full range of nutrients and vitamins. This feeding option is the simplest and most convenient. It can be used in raising birds, fish, rabbits, pigs, horses and cattle.
  2. Concentrated feed is a useful supplement to the main diet. This composition contains a high proportion of nutrients and dietary supplements. Concentrates are available for all types of pets.
  3. Balancing supplements are protein-vitamin-mineral compositions. They are designed to enrich the diet of certain animal species. Balancing supplements contain ingredients such as yeast, herbal flour, and oil extraction waste.
