Life stages of livestock each require specific nutritional formulas. Food varies for cattle, horses and poultry depending on what the animals will be used for. If you don't meet your animals' needs, they're likely to become unhealthy. You'll end up with low quality meat, eggs and dairy products.

Dairy cows produce milk only when they are bred and have offspring. The bovine gestational cycle is about nine months. After three months with their mother, calves are removed and the cow returns to dairy production. During this cycle, the mother's dietary needs require extra protein and minerals. High quality hay or fodder from sprouts of alfalfa may not be enough. Straw only contains fiber, so avoid using it for more than bedding. Cheap formulas with soy or corn are often used. Some farmers prefer to add grain to the diet. Cattle feeds must also be high in protein for the best beef.

Work horses need additional calories to make up for the energy they burn pulling equipment, plowing fields or even running around a racetrack. They're usually offered oats that include sodium and other electrolytes. Choose a manufacturer who keeps their machines clean. This way you avoid unwanted items like plastic or metal pieces from contaminating food.

Laying hens will eat insects from your yard when the weather cooperates. In winter, chickens need additional calories for egg laying. Those calories should come from high-protein pellets. Also, look for foods with calcium and ensure your chickens get enough grit in the mix. This ensures market quality eggs.

Talk to your area livestock feed suppliers about the products they offer for your ranch animals. You'll find a good range of supplements and diets available. Take time to read company labels and ensure the protein content is high enough for your animals.

While it's definitely not uncommon to be curious about the physical location of any business you're contemplating dealing with, not all companies offer a physical venue or office to check out in person. Since this is sometimes the case with livestock feeding companies, traders and dealers, you should scan through their official website and contact them with any inquiries you see fit. Ask about particular animal feeds, which generally contain onlins, lentils, ginger, maize, wheat, peanuts, fish, oil meal, soybeans, protein, acorns and various other grain products. Furthermore, you must discover whether or not the animal feeding exporters, suppliers, companies or dealers cater to your neck of the woods. It's possible that they fail to have a branch that ships livestock feeding products to your town or city. If this is the case, you'll naturally have to seek out grain products elsewhere. When all is said and done, it's imperative to pinpoint and choose a livestock feed dealer that's able to meet your standards, while providing you the feed you need within the time frame you demand and at the prices you can afford. Fortunately there are many livestock feeding companies, manufacturers, dealers, exporters, suppliers and traders to choose from in this modern era. Let the Internet guide the way!
