It also contains a variety of trace elements, vitamins, yeast, etc., among which The content of lysine, methionine, and tryptophan is also very high; its crude fiber content is low, it has good palatability and digestibility, and it has the effect of increasing appetite; feeding lees to sheep is about 40- In about 50 days, you will find that the sheep's fur is brighter and softer, and not picky. The sheep fed with distiller's grains have good meat quality, fine fiber, fresh color and toughness after slaughter.

Feeding sheep with distiller's grains is simple, saves time and labor, and can also reduce the incidence of parasitic and rot-foot disease in sheep. At the same time, it can promote weight gain and lactating sheep can increase milk production.

Second, the disadvantages of lees raising sheep

Third, the use of lees to raise sheep

Feeding sheep with distiller's grains cannot be fed separately, but must be supplemented with concentrate and trace elements. Taking corn distillers grains, the diet composition of each sheep can be: 1 kg of corn distillers grains, 0.75 kg of grass powder, and 0.25 kg of corn flour. It would be more convenient and time-saving if these costs could be made into pellet feeding with a feed pelletizer according to a certain proportion. The daily weight gain of lambs fed by this method increased by 7%, and the survival rate of lambs increased by 15%.

If it is beer lees, it should be fed with corn flour, bran, soybean meal, etc., or it can be mixed with corn stalks in a certain ratio (corn stalks and beer lees 4: 1) and then produced by sheep feed granulators to produce pellet feed. Feed. The experiments showed that the mixed silage of beer lees and corn stalks had a 12.5% ​​increase in body weight compared with corn stalks lactating milk goats alone, and the average daily lactation volume was 0.25 kg more per cow, and the milk production increased by 8.8%.
