Can chicken and pig feed be fed to cattle and sheep?

2020-11-20

Expert answer: Chicken and pig feed cannot be fed to cattle and sheep. In China, as well-known manufacturers have long focused on processing chicken and pig feed, the development and application of cattle and sheep feed is relatively lagging, and there are fewer brands. Feeding has caused certain losses. The main reasons why cattle and sheep cannot use chicken and pig feed are:

 
1. A large amount of antibiotics are added to chicken and pig feed. Long-term feeding of cattle and sheep will destroy the beneficial microorganisms and ciliates in the rumen, affect the fermentation of rumen microorganisms, and then affect the absorption and utilization of non-protein nitrogen by ruminants.
 
2. A large amount of unprotected fat is added to chicken and pig feed. After feeding, the feed intake and cellulose digestibility of cattle and sheep will decrease, causing flatulence and stomach distension.
 
3. A large amount of animal-derived feed is often added to chicken and pig feed. In order to completely cut off the transmission route of mad cow disease and prevent the occurrence of mad cow disease in my country, it is prohibited to use it.
 
4. A large number of rumen regulators and rumen buffers are added to cattle and sheep feed, but these ingredients are not in chicken and pig feed. Long-term use will lead to excessive rumen acidity, affect the appetite of cattle and sheep, and affect growth.
 
In short, long-term feeding of pig and chicken feed may cause chronic poisoning. The lamb’s legs are soft, unable to stand, do not stretch, stomach indigestion, slow growth in the later stage, and irritability and jumping of cattle after eating.
