Fattening sheep feeding principles

Feeding sheep:

For fattening sheep, they need some food to survive, which they call rations. Also, the amount of food consumed by livestock for meat production is called the production ration. Therefore, the nutritional requirements of livestock, total rations and rations are produced. The feeds used are sheep feed, green fodder, root and tuber products, surplus crops and surplus farms in the agricultural conversion industries. Green fodder is large in size, rich in fiber and low in energy, and is not usable for feeding lamb sheep alone. Therefore, other materials with a high energy content, low volumes and fiber, called “concentrate”, should be The name of the food supplement is used in the diet of sheep fat.

Principles of balanced dieting for fattening sheep:

To provide a balanced diet, you need to know the amount of sheep’s needs in terms of dry matter, energy, protein and nutrients. Raw food, digestible and nutritious, should be economically feasible, and because sheep are a ruminant, there is a sufficient amount of raw material in the diet.

For each head, depending on the age and weight of the animal, the amount of feed consumed per day is 1,300 to 1,600 grams. The proportion of the concentrate and forage compound in early feeding (in the first 1 to 2 months) is 780 g and 520 g, so that the concentrate and alfalfa are mixed thoroughly and placed in lambs at three times in the morning, noon and evening. In the third month of fattening, the amount of feed consumed is 1,600 grams, so that for each lamb, 1,300 grams of concentrate and 300 grams of alfalfa are mixed in 3 hopes. In order to get lambs up and prevent gastrointestinal problems caused by food intake, the diet should be changed gradually and in 1 week to 10 days.

The best time for the sheep fattening period:

Sheep at the start of a fattening period that has not yet been consumed and who is not accustomed to using high energy grains has less conversion power and does not add more than 100 to 150 grams per day, but during the second months And the third is fattening, between 200 and 300 grams per day, depending on the fattening conditions and the type of fat intake. But in the fourth month, when most obese sheep are approaching their maximum weight, their daily weight gain is reduced to 150-200 grams a day. Therefore, the weight loss at the end of fattening is not cost-effective, and at this time, fattening and sheep should be discarded. It should be remembered that in any period of fattening, when weight gain is lowered, fats are stored in the body of the livestock, and this is the end of fattening. The duration of fattening in the country is determined by age and sheep breeding between 80 and 120 days.
