LIVESTOCK AND PET WINTER FEEDING GUIDE
When winter temperatures drop, you need to increase feeding rates for animals in order to provide the
extra energy needed to maintain their body heat.
RULE OF THUMB:
When the average temperature drops below 40° for an extended period of time, you should increase your feed by 10%. If the temperature drops near zero, you should increase by 20%. Also take into account the wind chill factor. Feeding more hay will not give the extra needed energy. It takes grain to generate heat. Increasing fat levels will also provide extra calories to the winter diet. This applies to poultry and to your pets as well. Make sure animals have adequate open water and dry bedding.
If you have feeding or management questions, please give us a call (937-473-2808) or email.
Specialists in high quality SHOW FEEDS.
KALMBACH is a family-owned business based out of Upper Sandusky.
We've worked with other big companies before but have found that KALMBACH is
large enough to meet your, the customer's, needs but small enough to care. This
working relationship is a 'good fit' for us here at Siegels.
Being a KALMBACH dealer means quality feeds, timely deliveries, competitive pricing. We offer a full line of livestock feeds, whether you are a hobby farmer with just a few animals, or a larger producer who buys bulk feeds. We can fill your needs with bags from our store, or bulk deliveries direct from our supplier.
If you are interested in a product that we do not keep in stock, we can submit that order by Saturday and receive it on the following Tuesday along with our weekly restocking order.
