  • Feeding of broilers

    03 october 2016

    Broilers, unlike other kinds of poultry, have high intensity of growth. Therefore, from the first days of life they need complete feed, balanced for all nutrients according to the recommendations considering the particular cross.

  • Feeding of adult egg hens

    30 september 2016

    Modern egg crosses allow to receive up to 330 eggs from a laying hen annually. Implementation of genetic potential of productivity is possible subject to the hygiene standards of detention, the veterinary and epizootic well-being of the farm/enterprise and the use of a balanced high-quality feed.

  • Feeding of young egg hens

    26 september 2016

    For the breeding of high-quality rearing flocks in the first four days of life the chicken should be fed to the zero diet, consisting of feed with the most readily soluble and easily digestible nutrients (corn, wheat, soybean meal, fish meal, milk powder, etc.). The components of the diet should be a kind of grit with a particle size of 0.5-1.0 mm.

  • Balanced diet is a pledge of profitability

    23 september 2016

    Feed mill "Konstanta" offers phase feeding of poultry using specially developed full value pelleted feeds for each growing period. Applicable normalized feeding - is a system of measures aimed at providing poultry with energy and nutrients to achieve high productivity and product quality. An important element of the poultry feeding system is regular monitoring of full value condition of nutrition. Continuous analysis of the efficiency of breeding is carried out on the results of the accounting of live weight, safety, productivity, individual biochemical and economic indicators.

  • Feeding of pigs in the period of fattening

    20 september 2016

    This is final process of pork production. The biggest amount of food is consumed during this period of rapid growth. While in previous periods of life feeding had a physiological nature, now
    economic characteristics of feeding come forward. The diet is optimized not only to meet the physiological needs of the animals, but also to reduce the self-cost of growth gain.
    Aims of fattening:
    Maximum growth gain with the minimum flow rate of feed;
    Obtaining 100 kg of body weight - no later than in 165 days;
    Feed conversion - 2.6-2.7 kg per 1 kg of body weight gain.
    Two fattening periods are employed:
    initial (first phase) - from posing for fattening, with body weight of 25-35 kg and to the weight of 75 kg;
    final (second phase) - from live weight of 75 kg and to a maximum weight of 100-110 kg.
    The diet focuses on high content of amino acids for the full realization of the genetic potential. It is important to provide intensively growing pigs with minerals and vitamins, especially B
    vitamins, as their content in plant feed and synthesis in the large intestine are insufficient for the needs of the animal.Aims of fattening:

  • Feeding growing pigs

    19 september 2016

    The peculiarities of pigs in this period are the intensive development of bone and muscle tissue, digestive organs, active metabolism and energy. There are two periods of feeding growing pigs:
    • The first - right after weaning and until gaining body weight of 15-20 kg;
    • second - ends depending on the technology adopted in the enterprise, when weight reaches 25, 30 or 35 kg.
    Rearing pigs grow very rapidly and should provide 500-600 g of average daily gain. By 11 weeks their weight reaches 30-35 kg. While feeding pigs in this period it is necessary to pay attention on the biological value of protein. The concentration of lysine in the dry matter must be at least 1.0-1.2%, methionine + cystine - 0,54-0,66%, tryptophan - 0,2-0,23%. The right balance between the essential amino acids for the growth rate must be ensured. The optimum fiber content must not exceed 5% in this period.

    Mineral nutrition plays an important role in the development and strengthening of the musculoskeletal system of growing pigs.
    The main protein components in the diet of pigs are primarily meals, cakes, partially - fish flour of good quality, yeasts.
