To be successful in the cattle feed industry in India, you must have to know the cattle feed management and the necessity of it. Basically cattle feed management means providing quality feed for good health, proper growth and better production (in different stages of life and in different seasons).

The possibility of success in the cattle farming business depends on the proper feed management system. If you intend to run and maintain a profitable business, you must have to provide your cattle with well-balanced and nutritious food according to their demand.


For maintaining a profitable cattle feed companies in India, follow the cattle feed management system described below.


For getting healthy and productive cattle, you have to ensure your calves have received the colostrum. Colostrum is the first milk that a cow produces after giving birth to a calf. Ensure that a calf has received at least 2 liters of colostrum within three days after their birth. You can’t ignore the importance of the colostrum, because it contains a large amount of globulin (a remarkable source of antibodies) that is urgent to maintain a healthy life and for protecting the cattle from infection. The animal feed companies in India contain 3 to 5 times more protein and 5 to 15 times more vitamin A than general milk. It also contains magnesium, antithetic acid, iron, thiamine, copper, and chlorine, etc. Colostrum acts as a laxative.


In the case of whole milk feeding, you should follow some points.

·         Give the calves their mother’s milk.

·         Let the calf to suckle its mom’s udder.

·         Always try to maintain routing while feeding whole milk to the calves.

Skimmed Milk Feeding: The cream removed milk is called skimmed milk. In many dairy farms, this milk is given to the calves to make excellent dairy calves. Never feed the calves skimmed milk suddenly; instead add a little amount of skimmed milk with whole milk.

Skimmed Dried Milk Feeding (Buttermilk): Skimmed dried milk or buttermilk is an ideal feed for the calves. Mix buttermilk at the rate of 1 kg milk with about 9 kg of water. This mixture is very helpful for digesting.

Calf Starter Feed: Calf starter is a mixture of grains, grass, protein, minerals, vitamins and antibiotics. After a calf reaches the age of two weeks, reduce the amount of skimmed milk or whole milk from their mom. Then offer the calves a small amount of cattle feed wholesale suppliers. After a few days, provide them a growing grain ration.

Grain Mixture: For better growth of the calves, a grain mixture is very helpful. You can start feeding the calves’ grain mixture at the age of 7 to 15 days. You have to prepare this mixture in such a way so that it contains a medium amount of protein. Preparing a grain mixture for your calves uses 20% of groundnut cake, 35% oats, 5% linseed cake, 10% barley, and 30% bran.
