best animal feeds in kenya

Feed is a great determinant of both quality and quantity of milk production. For fodder material, provide feeds that are rich in all the five classes of nutrients. Incorporate protein-rich fodder like desmodium, calliandra, lucerne or groundnut leaves. As for concentrates, we have home-made ‘dairy meals’ and commercial ones. A number of feed manufacturing companies now classify dairy meal

concentrates into two; normal dairy meal and Hi Yield. The latter is more expensive because of higher amounts of energy and proteins. If resources allow, buy the Hi Yield and mix with mineral salt

available in powder forms from agrovets. The dairy meal amounts supplemented to animals is normally reliant on the amount of milk a cow produces. It is not economical on cows producing less than10 litres of milk. Above this, give about an extra kilo for every 1.5-2 litres of milk produced.
