Alternative feed ingredients.

Written By Arthur king peters on Friday, 9 November 2012 | 00:48

It is known that feed costs play a major role in the total creation cost in commercial poultry farms. The feed market has become extra volatile over the past several years and prices have been growing.


Additionally, there is also sturdy competition between food and feed companies for using available resources. This case has increased production cost and added pressure on poultry makers.

Although a combination of corn and soybean meal is normally considered as gold standard (from any nutritional standpoint), wheat and barley are also being used in poultry rations in various areas of the world, including Europe, North america and Australia. There is currently a tendency from the poultry industry to move toward the use of alternative feed ingredients in the hope that this approach may help to lessen production costs.

Two major determinants when it comes to the use of alternative nourish ingredients in poultry rations usually are cost, and availability. Another important issue in this regard is deficiency of well-established information on the nutrient value these ingredients, which may make diet plan formulation difficult.

  1. Good article about alternate feed ingredients in poultry farming which help to reduce production costs.Combination of corn and soybean meal is normally used but it is seen that wheat and barley are also being used in poultry rations. However the nutrition value must also be considered. Other types of poultry feeds are sold as bulk or bagged feeds.
