How to Make Your Own Poultry Feed Formula with Big Benefits?

Processing feed is essential to ensure healthy poultry growth. Good feed formulation can provide poultry with the nutrients they need to promote growth, weight gain and production performance. At the same time, scientific and reasonable feed formulation can also reduce farming costs, improve economic efficiency, and create more profit space. Therefore, poultry feed formulation is of great significance in the modern fodder processing industry.

Making Poultry Feed Formulations: General Principles and Guidelines

There are many different answers on how to make poultry feed formulas. But all poultry feed formulations need to be made following some basic principles. The following are the general requirements for poultry feed making formulas:

  •    Balanced Nutrition: The feed should provide essential nutrients including protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals to ensure that the needs of the poultry are met. For example, a layer feed formulation should ensure that it provides about 120-140g of protein per day.
  •    Hygiene and Safety: Maintaining strict hygiene practices during poultry feed processing is essential to prevent contamination. Industry standards stipulate that microbial counts in feed should not exceed 1,000-10,000 colony-forming units per gram.
  •    Raw Material Selection: Selection of quality raw materials is critical to the production of poultry feed. Research indicates that using easily digestible and nutrient-rich ingredients can enhance feed efficiency by 8-10%
  •    Fine Processing: Feed should be carefully processed to facilitate digestion and absorption. Fine grinding of feed particles to an average size of 600-800 microns can improve digestibility by 5-7%.
  •    Cost-effectiveness: Cost-effectiveness should be considered to strike a balance between quality and cost. Optimizing poultry feed formulations to meet nutritional needs can lead to a 5-8% reduction in overall poultry feed production costs. Additionally, pelleting feed over crumbling feed, can result in 10-15% savings in poultry feed manufacturing expenses. This ensures that the feed remains competitively priced while maintaining profitability.

Essential Nutrients for Poultry and Application Recommendations

  • Moisture: 50% water content in adult poultry and 70% in chicks. Loss of 20% of moisture will lead to the death of poultry.
  • Protein: Protein can not be replaced by other substances, the feed must ensure the supply of protein.
  • Fat: Insufficient fat in layer feed formula will lead to a decrease in egg production rate. But the cultivation of fattened liver goose can be increased by 1%~5% of fat.
  • Carbohydrate: Poultry fattening should be added to feed high carbohydrate feed. Breeding chickens, laying hens should not be fed too much carbohydrate.
  • Vitamins: Vitamins are important catalysts for poultry to maintain life, growth and egg production.
  • Minerals: Minerals in poultry feed are important nutrients necessary to maintain poultry health, growth and performance.
  • Energy: Generally speaking, broiler chickens, ducks and geese require more energy than egg-laying chickens, ducks and geese.
