How effective is yeast for turkeys
feeding birds is a very important stage for their development and growth. In order for the bird to always remain healthy, vigorous and strong, it needs proper nutrition. This food should consist of the necessary vitamins and minerals. It is often found in practice that turkeys from childhood begin to give additional funds for rapid growth and weight gain. Yeast for turkeys is the most popular remedy given to turkeys so that they gain weight well.
Proper nutrition is the key to success
Dietary and soft meat, absolute unpretentiousness in food and the fastest possible mass gain are the main positive aspects of turkey poults. Thanks to these characteristics, turkeys have become a very popular species for breeding. Even with such positive data and the complete omnivorous nature of the animal, it is still possible to feed them with anything horrible. We must not forget about vitamins, natural supplements - yeast, shells and chalk. Useful additional feeds for turkeys:
- in any case, there should be different legumes and grain feeds, and they will make up more than 70% of the total diet of the bird: in addition, they will also serve as the main sources of protein and fats, a mash of water;
- then the birds' organism needs to be saturated with amino acids, and they are in meal and cake: especially soybean meal, in its structure it resembles any animal feed;
- any type of flour: fish, meat, blood: flour contains a lot of positive substances, protein, calcium, phosphorus, amino acids - all that is so necessary for growth;
- any fresh food - mowed grass, and, of course, a mash of water;
- not do without hay - this is a feed that contains a lot of fiber, which positively affects the functioning of the food system;
- fats: they can be obtained from nuts, fat and acorns, they will make the meat softer and more tender;
- in order to get a large volume, you need to give special additives, but not everyone wants to give chemicals to their turkeys, as this is very dangerous and bad for meat, which is why all farmers give yeast.
Positive aspects of yeast
When a person begins to grow turkeys or any other bird, he wants to get the maximum profit in the form of very tasty meat, which will be soft and large in weight. But now, like any product, yeast has its own specific quantity, more precisely the dose. You can’t just take and pour out the yeast, because an overabundance of the positive substances that are in the product can lead to turkeys losing their weight dramatically and making the meat tough and tasteless.
Yeast is a kind of very small, even microscopic unicellular mushroom. Today they can be found in completely different types and for different applications:
- baking yeast;
- beer houses to make beer roam;
- for feeding;
- alcohol for any type of alcohol.
In order to improve the process of bird growth and rapid weight gain, feed types of yeast are used. Such yeast is a dry and small biomass, which in its structure consists of different microcells. Fodder yeast is created and grown in special laboratories and is therefore considered pure (there are no dangerous chemical additives that can lead to death). They can be safely given to turkeys and not worry that they can be poisoned. Mushroom-like feeds will be considered natural supplements that will not only help the bird gain weight quickly, but will also improve the digestive system, blood circulation and strengthen the immune system.
What can you expect from yeast if given every day?
Yeast will increase bird egg production
As many farmers and veterinarians say, the effect of taking yeast can already be seen in a couple of days. A turkey becomes more active, moves quickly, in a couple of days it can gain from 500 grams to one kilogram. The very first changes that immediately catch your eye - this increases the egg production of the bird. Turkeys by themselves do not often give eggs compared to chicken, but you can still notice that the turkey began to rush more often. Of course, the most important thing is that the turkey quickly began to gain body weight. A record was recorded (unofficially) when turkey was able to gain over 1.5 kilograms in one week. But, truth be told, she did not live long. The body could not cope with such a sharp influx of mass and her heart stopped. This is an example of the factor when the farmer did not calculate the dose and poured the bird “generously” every day.
The third “symptom” of the fact that the yeast began to act is that the turkey began to eat twice as much. This is all due to the fact that the body begins to grow rapidly and it needs constant strength to keep pace with the rapid development of all systems and the body itself. The last symptom can be replaced over time, because this is the strengthening of immunity. This can be replaced when the cold seasons come and the birds practically do not get sick. Just a turkey has an average immune system, so in the cold it often gets sick. Mushrooms of natural origin affect the development of the body with the help of the positive substances that they contain. They affect both chicks and adult representatives of turkey poults.
In addition, many experts note that in turkeys only in 5% of the egg a chick appears. And when they began to give yeast, the percentage increased to 78, and of them 70 percent of survival. Do not forget about wheat mixers with water. The yeast contains vitamins of groups B, A, D, E. Such vitamins affect the color, luster and density of the plumage of the animal. They become very smooth, shiny and bright. Because of this, the turkey feels like a rush of some energy, becomes very active, curious - it tries to crawl everywhere. In addition, you can purchase pharmacy feed, which will be additional feed additives, and together with yeast will positively affect the health and growth of the turkey. A mix of water and wheat bran is perfect.
Positive and negative aspects of feed additives
At the very first stages, when farmers are just beginning to give such top dressing as fodder yeast, they carefully monitor their flock. Most of the experts noted that the laying of eggs in birds increased by forty to fifty percent. Of course, what breed of turkeys you raise can affect this.
Specialists and veterinarians strongly recommend giving birds such feed supplements in the form of a drug that can strengthen their health and immune system. In addition, they carry in themselves both necessary and such useful fat acids:
Dosage and Feeding Rules
In order to correctly calculate the dose, you must understand the average weight of each animal. On average, only five percent of the total diet should be shivering. If we talk about numbers, then this is approximately thirty grams per kilogram. Before you give the yeast, you must soak them. Usually, if you give them in the morning, then fill them with warm water, mix and leave overnight, and give in the morning. Thus, they are much better absorbed.
If you decide to immediately prepare a large amount of a mixture of yeast, then it should be mixed every eight to ten hours. And of course, the water supplement in birds must be stirred every eight hours. This method of feeding is very cheap and economical, so it’s great for everyone, especially if the farmer has a small farm. In addition, birds receive natural supplements, not chemistry.
What could be the catch
In turkeys, a constant indigestion can be observed, also very often the period of inflammation of the cloaca begins due to the fact that the fluid is retained, because of this stagnation is created. The big problem is that birds have cannibalism in the pack. So far, doctors have not found a worthy explanation for this, but believe that this is due to the fact that birds become dependent on yeast and try to find them in the body of their comrade in the territory.
If you decide to transfer your pet to such a diet, the main thing is to adhere to all dosage rules so that there is no dependence on a natural supplement, you should give a mash 2 times a day.
