Online PR News – 09-September-2013 – NanJing – Havay Chemicals as a choline chloride manufacturer has been researching how to improve animals’ nutrition and health. Recent studies show that beef cattle's demands for nutrients are various according to different growth stage, growing rates and environmental conditions. If the need for nutrition is fully meted, beef and cattle's production potential can be maximized.
Beef's metabolism and other daily life activities need energy. If beef’s feed lacks of energy, it will make the beef lose weight. The nutrients stored in body issue release energy thus to maintain beef’s life activities. Therefore, sufficient energy must be provided to beef.
Protein is the basic ingredient of all living cells. The protein beef gets is firstly used in replenishing the protein utilized on body’s issue such as the growth of hairs, horn, hoof and synthesizing enzyme and hormone. After that, it comes to weigh gain. As there is not much protein in hay and straw, so protein feed or non-protein nitrogen is a must in cattle fattening stage.
Minerals account for 3-4% of livestock body weight and minerals are the indispensable ingredients of the body's tissues and cells. Except for bone development, it also can maintain body acid-base balance, regulate the osmotic pressure, and participate in enzyme, hormone, vitamin synthetic etc. Salts, calcium and phosphorus are among the major minerals.
Salt should always be supplied. Beef can lick it free by themselves or we can add salt in the feed.
Calcium - A large number of calcium should be provided in beef cattle growth stage.
Phosphorus - According to the nutritional needs, phosphorus should be added in feed.
Under normal circumstances, nutrition elements for beef such as selenium, zinc, copper, manganese, cobalt, iodine, we only need to add them in daily feed when the local soil lacks of these elements.
Vitamins belong to the low molecular compounds, which is necessary to maintain the normal physiological function of the livestock. Lack of vitamins would retard growth. Beef are most likely to lack vitamin A. Based on straw as mainly feed, oure recommendations is that 6600 international units of vitamin A supplement for per 100 kg of body weight.
Water is an important part of the animal's body. Beef's demand for water is affected by various aspects such as weighting increasing rate, daily activities, feed type, food intake and external environment. Generally for fattening cattle with weight between 250kg and 450kg, the water intake is between 25kg and 35kg under the temperature of 10℃.
6. Choline Chloride Feed Additives
Choline chloride liquid have a significant effect on improving feed nutritional value and animal production.
