Feed Formulation Formulas And Techniques In Poultry by tuk2ato(m): 5:08am On Dec 22, 2015
It is a known fact that feeding accounts for about 70 percent of the cost of producing poultry birds especially broilers. Feed brands such as Topfeeds, Vital, Hybrid etc. cost about 2600 naira per 25 kg bag. In order to reduce the cost of feeding in poultry, the alternatives are either buying concentrates and mixing with maize and wheat offal or feed formulation. Experts in the house please share your knowledge about how to reduce the cost of feeding through feed formulation. Lets make ourselves better poultry farmers. Thank you.

Do you know you can actually attain your
desired result from broiler chicken in no
time? Well, we help poultry farmers
with recipes that enhance the growth of
their broilers to attain desired weight in
the market thereby cutting down on cost
of feeding their birds for too long.
Interested persons should send me a
PM.. we bet you, you won't want to go back
to the old way of farming after tasting
this. NB:- Please only serious minded
persons should send me a PM thanks.

join the balanced feeds group on Facebook and u will learn alot about balanced feed formulation for livestocks for discussions and contributions from experts. you can also learn alot about poultry management on (agrolifebenefits.com)

PRECESSING SOYABEAN FOR FEEDS
PRODUCTION
Soya bean processing is done in 2 way
s
By soaking the soya bean and by frying
Each method is meant to same result and that is
to destroy the anti nutritional content residents at
outer coat of the soya beans seed
By soaking the outer coat becomes soft making it
easier to remove. Through frying the heat destroy
the anti nutritional element at the outer coat
Seeds obtained from each process is referred to
as full fat soya (FFS) because in each method oil
is not removed from the soya seed. The cp is
usually 40%cp

Re: Feed Formulation Formulas And Techniques In Poultry by tuk2ato(m): 3:22pm On Dec 31, 2015
Sorry i have been away for a while, i have been trying to find answers to many questions pertaining to feed formulation, especially for commercial broiler farmers like myself. For small scale poultry farmers, feed formulation might not be too cost effective, but for farmers with 1000 birds upwards it is. I have been a buyer of branded feeds since i started broiler production, however, i wasnt contented with the feeding cost, hence the need to formulate my own feeds. I called a feed mill in my area in osogbo, the cost of 1 ton of formulated feed is #84k, that will save me some #20k because i buy 1 ton of topfeeds for #104k. So house how much do you formulate 1 ton of feeds (broiler starter and finisher)?
