Sheep and goat farmers need to carefully consider which forage species they plant in order to provide enough quality feed for their livestock. UFAB and Le Gouessant’s technicians are able to help them make this important choice.
A supplement, particularly of minerals and vitamins, is generally necessary to ensure that the animals’ nutritional requirements, dependent on their physiological stage (starting, lactation…), are met.
Innovations and products
Our program has been specially adapted in order to calculate the organic feed rations for sheep and goats. It takes the nutritional values of the farms forage into account, and it enables supplements of energy, proteins, vitamins and minerals to be adapted.
Within the framework of a ration that is already balanced, we are able to add a feed that is rich in fats and that has a guaranteed level of cellulose for highly productive goats. This feed improves milk quality, resulting in better cheeses.
If you are short of forage for feeding your goats, organic dehydrated lucerne is ideal. It is also easy to introduce into rations that are deficient in protein.
