What Is Pig Feed? 

Pig feed is divided into 2 types, first is raw feed which is not artificial feed. It mainly includes the following types.

1. Coarse feed: It refers dry grass, stalk and agricultural by-product,which crude fiber content more than 18%.

2.Green feed: It refers to fresh alfalfa, and vegetables, which natural moisture content more than 60%.

3.Silage: It refers to roughage, which is the green feed that was chopped and fermented.

4.Energy feed: It refers crude fiber content of less than 18%, crude protein content less than 20%.

5.Protein feed: It refers crude fiber content of less than 18%, crude protein content of more than 20%.

6.Additives: It refers to natural minerals, vitamins, antibiotics, antioxidants, etc.

The second is compound feed, it’s artificial feed. Along with the development of cultural technique and breeding technique, compound feed play an important role in modern pig farm. It can significantly reduce production costs, protein and phosphorous intake and excretion, and greenhouse gas emissions by increasing individual nutrient efficiency. We are here to talk about how to make artificial feed pellets.

Why Pig Feed Is Important?

Pigs are known for their appetites, and they have a collection of favorite foods to match. However, just like humans, pigs need a complete, well-balanced diet in order to stay well and avoid unhealthy weight gain. The nutritional needs of pigs can be divided into six categories or classes. These are water, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. The accurate formulation makes sure the diet meets the needs of the specific pig.

Each pig with different feed Requirements, to properly nourish the pig, we need to understand its nutritional idiosyncrasies, its physiology and nutrient requirements, and how it responds to feedstuff and additive combinations. We must also realize that feeding goes beyond diet formulation, because diets must be properly processed, transported, stored, and finally presented for consumption before their potential is realized.

Good feed is necessary for growth, body maintenance and the production of meat and milk. You can use locally feeds that are less expensive, but also can be made by your own animal feed pellet mill.

Making your own pig feed is far more cost-effective than buying expensive commercial brands from the local market. In fact, if you are only raising a small pig farm, a hundred dollars' worth of homemade feed might be enough to last you a few months.

Making your own hog feed is not too difficult, as long as you know the proper ingredients and proportions to use.

When you mix and formulate your own feed, you need to know some information to help you produce high quality pig feed pellets.
