Feed Supplies

 Fodder or an animal feed is any agricultural food stuff used specifically to feed domesticated livestock, as follows cattle, goats, sheep, horses, chickens and pigs. Animal feed plays an important part in the food chain and has impacts for the composition and standards of the livestock products (milk, meat and eggs) that people consume. The Food Standards Agency is accountable for drawing up the rules on the composition and marketing of animal feed. With the quick rise of the industrial food animal production unit, an increasing number of food animals once raised on pastures are now uplifted in feedlots. Feedlot elevated animals are kept indoors for the majority of the year, and they are given formulated feed additive to speed up their production to market weight and supply them with essential nutrients, while minimizing value to operators. Concerns have arisen about the content of these feeds, however, as grain-based diets can produce serious and at times fatal digestive tract problems in livestock production meetings such as cows, goats, and sheep whose stomachs are opt suited to digesting high-cellulose containing plants like grass.
