WHY YOU MUST THINK OF SELF FEEDS FORMULATION (1)
Feed takes about 60-70% of the total cost of animal production. Therefore, feed stands as one of the major factors influencing the profitability of animal production. Profitable animal production requires that farmers have access to balanced feeds at affordable cost. Feed is a recurrent product in animal production enterprise. I met a poultry farmer recently who told me that the commercial feed dealer in his area has increased price for about 8 times within the space of three (3) months. This can be so frustrating and disgusting. Therefore, one of the main essence of self feeds formulation is to cut down your cost of production while producing balanced feeds. This is attainable because raw materials for feeds formation are locally available, hence farmers can utilize this opportunity to formulate feeds themselves in order to reduce cost of feeds production. Take the advantage of the abundant raw materials available in the country to produce feed for your flocks.
You can reduced your cost of animal production downward by about 30% through self feeds formulation. It will be very wise to start formulating feeds yourself once your birds are up to 100 and above. You may not necessarily need to own equipment at this stage. You can take your formula to toll millers and your feed will be prepared for you based on the formula submitted.
