Preparation of duck feed

Due to the development and application of modern breeding technology, the production performance of ducks has been greatly improved than before, and the requirements for feed and nutrition are also higher. On the other hand, feed accounts for 60%-80% of the total cost of duck production. Therefore, duck producers with self-made feeds must understand the role of various nutrients and their exact content in various feeds. With reference to feeding standards, the best rations that can meet the nutritional needs of ducks at different stages must be prepared. Reduce feeding costs and increase economic efficiency. Problems to be noticed during the preparation and preservation of duck feed

1. Ducks often eat fresh mollusks such as fish, shrimp and snails. These animals contain a substance called thiamine that can destroy vitamin B1, so ducks are prone to vitamin B1 deficiency. The disease occurs mostly in young ducklings and often occurs within 2 weeks of age. Therefore, in the case of ducks able to eat aquatic animals, it is necessary to increase the vitamin B1 content in the diet, especially in ducklings.

2. Vitamin D deficiency often occurs in laying ducks, which is caused by insufficient supply of vitamin D in the diet or insufficient exposure of the birds to sunlight. Diseased waterfowl showed poor growth and development, feathers were unorganized, dull, and production decreased. Shells and soft shells were produced, and eggshells were easily broken. Therefore, it is often necessary to additionally add cod liver oil or vitamin A, D3, E, etc. to the duck feed.

3. Ducks usually lay eggs in the early morning. Therefore, ducks must maintain high blood calcium concentrations in the early morning. Otherwise, they will produce sand shell eggs, misshapen eggs, and even reduce egg production. When preparing egg-laying duck feeds, it is necessary to have a fast-absorbing calcium source and a slowly-absorbing calcium source. Stone powder and shell powder are usually used as calcium sources at the same time.

4, feed ingredients and with a good feed should be stored in ventilated, dark, dry place, in order to avoid oxidation of fat in the feed, vitamin A, vitamin E were destroyed. Place a layer of moisture-proof material between the feed and the ground to prevent feed build-up and mildew. Moldy feed is prone to cause duck poisoning, pupa and so on. In addition, the feed store should pay attention to pest control and rodent damage.
