Hoe moet voer lyk en voel, hoeveel en wanneer moet ek voer? Die tekstuur van voer, die hoeveelhede wat aan skoudiere gevoer word en voeding tydens die skou, dra by tot die afronding van dié diere en uiteindelik hoe hulle in die skouring lyk. Voer moet 'n goeie tekstuur hê, naamlik 'n goeie mengsel van partikelgroottes en so min as moontlik uitermatige fyn of growwe materiaal. Stowwerige of gemufde voer moet glad nie gebruik word nie.

As early as 1891, researchers indicated that a lack of protein in the feed brings about a decrease in digestibility, particularly in the fibrous parts of the feed. Ruminants use microbes (bacteria and protozoa) to help them digest feed into simple substances that the body can use; in the lower digestive tract, solid acids and many… Read More

Infrastruktuur Genoeg VREETSPASIE vir ooie en lammers te alle tye, veral sodra die lammers sterker begin vreet!. Voorsien skaduwee in die somer vir lammers op kraal. Voeding: Verseker voldoende biesmelkkwaliteit en optimale melkproduksie met lamtyd deur ooie die laaste drie weke voor lam met ‘n Feedmaster deurvloeiproteïen produk of ‘n lek te help. Begin met kruipvoer binne 10… Read More
