Livestock owners, managers sometimes cut corners in a bid to cut cost not knowing they are causing more harm than good. Some of such activities are but not limited to:

+ Diluting a formulated complete feed

* by adding grains and/or fibre to the feed

* Dependence on foraging to supply nutrients in place of a complete feed

+ Not checking product use description on the label

+ Extended time of storage which leads to

* vitamin destruction/ oxidation

* Rancidity of fats/ Fatty acids

+ Poor storage conditions which leads to nutrient destruction Too much heat (summer/ sun), Moisture can cause mould growth consequently leading to food poisoning. Proper livestock feed handling will enhance palatability and increase digestibility hence good meat, milk or egg yield. Always adhere to Good Agricultural Practices
