How Many Catties Can a Sheep Grow in a Day?

This depends on your own fattening sheep feed formula standard. The fattening sheep concentrate formula is nutritious. Generally, small-tailed Han sheep can grow 0.3kg a day, the fastest can grow about 0.4kg, and Boer goats can grow 0.5kg a day. At present, this growth rate is common, so the formula of fattening sheep feed is very important. Many friends who raise sheep may not pay much attention to this matter.

Do I Need to Buy a Feed Pellet Machine?

Because sheep are ruminant animals, the pellet feed made by the feed pellet machine can facilitate the rumination of the sheep and reduce the diseases of the digestive tract of the sheep. The feed pellet machine, also known as the grass meal pellet machine, has a high degree of automation, saves time, labor, and materials. The pellet feed is not only nutritious and comprehensive, but also can promote the healthy growth of sheep. According to statistics, a flock fed with pellets is about 10 kg heavier than a flock raised extensively, and the slaughter time will be correspondingly several months earlier. Therefore, the sheep feed pellet machine is very popular among sheep farmers.
