Compound cattle feed is a mixture of various concentrate feed ingredients such as mixed grains, sorghum, barley and wheat
Cottonseed and soybean meals, molasses and whole cottonseed can also be used
Grain and protein supplements bring a lot of nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium onto the farm
Irrigating Ridge Gourd:
Super Napier has 16-18 % of protein that is very important for animal’s particularly for dairy cows to produce more milk
Cattle love to eat Super Napier because it is smooth, tender, and sweetish
Carbohydrate levels are more in super Napier grass and helps to increase fat content in Milk
Yearly yield will be 6-7 cuttings and 180-200 tonnes output
Super Napier growth will be double when compare to other grasses
Ridge Gourd - Flowering and Pollination:
Fodder Maize has 12% of protein that is very important for dairy cows to produce more milk
Maize is a rich source of starch, protein and edible oil
Maize produces good quality herbaceous fodder with high palatability.
Maize must be harvested at early and full bloom stage to get maximum benefit of the forage.
Any delay in harvesting at this stage not only decreases quality and fresh yield but also keeps the land busy making the next crop sowing difficult.
Maize yields around 160-200 quintals of green fodder per acre during rainy season and 100-120 quintals of fodder per acre during summer season.
Harvesting Ridge Gourd
Azolla is rich in proteins, essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals
Azolla's composition therefore makes it one of the most economic and efficient feed substitutes for livestock, particularly as can be easily digested by livestock due to its high protein and low lignin content
