Answer :

Cattle feed produced by the Milk Unions/ Federations is a balanced source of essential nutrients required for body maintenance, growth and milk production.


It is manufactured using good quality grains, oil cakes/ meals, bran, molasses, com- mon salt, minerals and vitamins. It is comparatively cheaper and highly palatable to the animals.


Cattle feed contains protein, energy, minerals and vitamins required for the growth, maintenance and milk production of animals. It is advantageous to feed extra cattle feed to pregnant animals for proper development of foetus.
