    Alfafa Hay

    Alfalfa hay is an excellent source of good quality protein and fiber. Alfalfa is a legume hay in the pea family and is sometimes called “lucerne”. These hays are higher in protein and minerals and are more palatable than grass hays. Alfalfa in particular is high in energy and is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. When properly cured, alfalfa is the best of the legume hays from a nutrient standpoint. It has the most feed value of all the perennial pasture forages. Alfalfa is used as for horses, dairy cows, beef cattle, sheep, chickens, turkeys and other farm animals.

    Lambs that that are preparing for breeding shows are generally “pushed” to be as growthy as possible. On the contrary, lambs that are destined for market shows may not require maximum growth. This decision depends upon the season of the year when the animal is shown. For example, February or March lambs that are intended to be shown in August need to grow as quickly as possible, while the same lambs shown in January – February do not require such explosive, early growth.

    Ostrich chick

    Many people think that the Ostrich only consumes vegetarian diet foods but that isn’t so. That can be most of it but not all of it. They do consume some insects and lizards too. Those that are raised on a farm will have a different diet too. The idea is for it to be nutritional and for the meat that is offered from these birds to be as tasty and nutritional for humans as possible.

    There are many different feeding programs that are offered for the Ostrich. The differences can affect the results of the food items that come from a given farm as well. Ostrich meet is known to be very lean and to have very few calories and that is what often entices consumers to try it.

These are water, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
