Follow Precautions before Feeding Processed Fodder to Cattle
If the processed fodder is not used correctly, there can be major drawbacks; therefore, an appropriate method must be followed.
1. Gradually increase the amount of processed fodder and silage mixed with the daily portions. Full portion should be started between five to seven days.
2. In the event of fungal infection or blackened colour, the animals should not be fed the processed fodder.
3. Processed fodder and silage should be stored in an airtight bag. The first layer of the processed fodder and silage should be mandatory for cattle.
4. The urea-processed fodder and silage should be spread on the ground, and the smell of ammonia should disappear, and only then should it be fed to cattle.
5. The processed fodder and silage should be adequately covered to keep the pests and poisonous animals away.
6. Six months of calf's ruminant capacity is not built properly; therefore, processed fodder and silage should not be fed.
