Green fodder and roughage commonly used for poultry
In poultry breeding, for better growth of poultry, we will use a combination of green and coarse feed to feed poultry and promote poultry growth. What are the green and roughages commonly used for poultry? What are the nutrients? Let's take a look together!
1. What are the green and roughages commonly used for poultry?
Green fodder: cabbage, cabbage, wild vegetables, carrots, etc.; coarse fodder: alfalfa grass powder, locust leaf powder, pine needle powder, etc.
2. What are the nutrients?
(1) Chinese cabbage
The water content in fresh cabbage is as high as 94%-96%, the metabolic energy is 375-630 kJ/kg, the crude protein is 1.1%-1.4%, the vitamin content is more, and the palatability is good. It is better for feeding chickens. Good green fodder.
The water content of cabbage is 85%～90%, the metabolic energy is 1045～1465 kJ/kg, the crude protein is 2.5%～3.5%, the vitamin content is relatively rich, and the palatability is good.
(3) Wild vegetables
Such as bitter mussel, goose vegetable, dandelion, etc., it has good palatability and high nutritional value, dry matter accounts for 15%-20%, contains metabolizable energy 1255-1675 kJ/kg, and contains crude protein 2.0%-3.0 %, the vitamin content is extremely rich.
Fresh carrots have high nutritional value, 90% water content, 1.3% crude protein, 879 kJ/kg metabolizable energy, 1% crude fiber, many types of vitamins and high content, and the carotene content is 522 mg/kg. Contains 121 mg/kg of riboflavin and 5200 mg/kg of choline.
(5) Alfalfa grass powder
Alfalfa grass meal contains 15%-20% crude protein, which is twice as high as corn; it contains lysine 1%-1.38%, which is 4.5 times higher than corn; it contains 100-230 mg of carotene per kilogram of grass meal. And the content of vitamin D, vitamin E and B vitamins is also richer. The dosage in commercial layer and breeder diets can account for 2% to 5%, and the dosage in growing chicken diets can account for 5% to 7%.
(6) Sophora japonica powder
Acacia leaf powder is mostly made from acacia leaves and acacia leaves. It contains about 20% crude protein and is rich in carotene and B vitamins. The dosage in commercial layer and breeder feed can account for 2% to 5%, and the dosage in feed for growing chickens can account for 5% to 7%.
(7) Pine needle powder
Pine needle powder is rich in carotene and vitamin E, which has obvious effects on chicken growth and disease resistance. The dosage in commercial layer and breeder diets can account for 1% to 3%, and the dosage in growing chicken diets can account for 2% to 4%.
We need to supplement poultry with various nutrients to promote the healthy growth of poultry.
