Feed urea introduction
According to the digestion characteristics of ruminants, after the rumen function of cattle is fully developed (3~4 months old, Ciliate begin to appear in the rumen), the microorganisms in the rumen of cattle can use the nitrogen source provided by non protein nitrogen compounds in the feed to synthesize protein. Urea is a non protein nitrogen-containing compound, a chemical product that can be produced in large quantities. Urea has a high nitrogen content, usually around 46%; Urea is digested by microorganisms in the rumen of cattle to synthesize bacterial protein, which can replace some protein feed
1. Urea is widely used as feed additive. (ruminants – cattle, sheep)
2. It can increase the absorption and metabolism of nitrogen, phosphorus, and calcium by ruminants (characteristic of easy absorption and utilization)
3. It can strengthen the absorption of calcium by animal bodies, thereby improving the quality of milk
4. The function of feed additive urea: By adding urea and urea compounds to animal feed, the protein in animal feed can be significantly increased, thereby improving the nutritional value of protein in feed, reducing feeding costs, and improving production efficiency (urea nitrogen amino acids protein nutrients)
5. For example, in sheep production, 1 kilogram of urea is equivalent to the nutritional value of the protein contained in 7 kilograms of soybean cake. So from this perspective, rational utilization of protein has important economic value.
