When the price of pigs is low, farmers can still make money by saving the cost of raising pigs. The cost of raising pigs includes the cost of feed, water and electricity, vaccine, veterinary medicine and epidemic prevention. And in these categories of costs, the largest is the cost of feed. Therefore, if farmers want to reduce the cost, they must start from the cost of feed. There are a lot of tips about reducing feed cost, such as feed matching, feed reprocessing, feed mildew resistance and so on. These links are the key to save feed cost.
1、 First of all, feed formula should be reasonable
It's not to say that if farmers add feed to the trough and pigs eat it, the feed will be used well. Pigs also pay attention to feed conversion rate and absorption rate after eating. Only when the pig transforms the feed into meat and grows, can the feed be considered to be in place. In order to improve the conversion rate and absorption rate of feed, the formula of feed is very important. According to the survey, 40% of the pig farms follow the formula of other pig farms when preparing feed, not according to their own actual situation. If you want to be lazy, you have to pay for it. The increase of feed cost is to pay for laziness. What kind of feed should be eaten at any stage, such as sows, should be changed in 114 days from the beginning of pregnancy to production. One feed will lead to embryo death or the weight of piglets born does not meet the standard. The proportion of commonly used pig feed is: corn grain accounts for 50-70%, bran such as bran accounts for 10-20%, soybean cake and bean dregs account for 15-20%, and others account for less than 5%. This is a simple feed mix. If you want to improve the feed utilization rate, the feed formula should be more careful.
2、 Secondly, the reprocessing of feed should not be ignored
The so-called reprocessing includes crushing of feed, artificial mixing, etc. Although it is only as simple as mixing feed, there are many cases of uneven mixing. If the pigs eat the feed with uneven mixing, then the nutrition of each pig will be different, and the physical condition of pigs will be naturally different. Especially when it is necessary to add medicine to the feed, it is often used to add step by step dilution method. First, a small amount of material is mixed with medicine, and then the mixed medicine and feed are mixed with other feed until all the ingredients and drugs are mixed. Only in this way can we ensure that every pig has been given the medicine, so that neither material nor medicine is wasted.
3、 Finally, the anti mildew and anti mildew of feed is the most important part
When you buy feed, you should also pay attention to whether there is mildew in the feed you buy. For example, corn contains more mycotoxins. Generally, when you use new corn to feed pigs, you should add mold remover to corn. Aflatoxin in feed should also be monitored regularly. In order to prevent the feed from moldy in the process of preservation, the preservation method should also pay attention to. In summer, farmers should pay attention to moisture-proof and moisture-proof, keep the warehouse in a dry environment, the relative humidity should not be higher than 70%, and the feed raw materials should be turned and dried irregularly.
If the cost of feed is controlled, the cost of raising pigs will certainly be saved. In the purchase of feed also taboo heavy price light quality, in the purchase time can choose to buy good feed, and then use the process as far as possible to play the power of this feed.
