Pig Feed Formulas or Feed Formulations to Save on Feed Cost
Save on feed cost by using a computer-balanced feed formula for making pig feeds, pig ration, swine feed, or swine ration.
A feed formula or feed formulation is an easy-to-understand computer-balanced recipe and instructions for mixing pig feed using common,locally-available ingredients. For this reason you have to indicate your country of operation. Instructions for packaging and storing the mixed feeds come together with the feed formula. Own-mixed feeds using computer-balanced feed formulas or feed formulations are 40% cheaper than commercial feeds because the ingredients are bought directly from farms or rice and corn mills. Own-mixed feeds have better quality than commercial feeds because the farmer can select fresh ingredients.
How to Use Feed Formulas or Feed Formulations to Make Feeds at Home
Just follow the following steps to make pig feed (or pig ration, swine feed, hog feed, swine ration).
Pellet feeds and mash feeds may be made at home using ordinary kitchen utensils or equipment.
The main ingredient can be corn or corn fines or cassava or banana rejects or any cereal grains. Mix with rice bran or corn bran, which you buy from farmers or rice mill,
Follow instructions from a computer-generated commercial feed formula or feed formulation, and mix the ingredients in clean basin or clean cement mixer,
Package the feeds,
Store the feeds in a cool, dry place.
A feed formula or feed formulation indicates the percentages or weights per ingredient. Each feed formulais computer-balanced according to U.S. National Research Council recommendations and latest industry researches on livestock, fish and pet nutrition. Own-mixed feeds using computer-balanced feed formulas have better nutrients than commercial feeds and results in better livestock performance.
Only commercial feed formulas can be used profitably in large-scale production. Eight to 20 ingredients are used in a commercial feed formula to have a cheap feed while only 4-8 ingredients are used in an owner-type feed formula for easy sourcing of ingredients. You can save with either feed formula because you buy ingredients direct from farmers.
It is not protein content only that is important in feeds, diets or rations but the amount of each limiting amino acid, vitamins and minerals. Feeds account for 60-70% of production cost. The profitability of a livestock operation depends greatly on computer-balanced feed formulas. Unbalanced feeds result in poor production and, worse, high mortality. All required nutrients should be present in proper amounts. More or less will affect the absorption of other nutrients and can cause low feed conversion, poor production and high mortality in young animals.
