Cattle Feed

There are different systems of feeding cattle in animal husbandry, which may have different advantages and disadvantages. Most cattle in Bangladesh have fodder that is composed of at least some forage (grass, legumes, or silage).

In fact, most beef cattle are raised on pasture from birth in the spring until autumn (7 to 9 months). For pastured animals, grass is usually the forage that composes the majority of their diet. Cattle reared in feedlots are fed hay supplemented with grain, soy and other ingredients in order to increase the energy density of the feed.

The debate is whether cattle should be raised on fodder primarily composed of grass or a concentrate. The issue is complicated by the political interests and confusion between labels such as “free range“, “organic“, or “natural“. Cattle raised on a primarily foraged diet are termed grass-fed or pasture-raised; for example meat or milk may be called grass-fed beef or pasture-raised dairy.

The term “pasture-raised” can lead to confusion with the term “free range“, which does not describe exactly what the animals eat.

Cattle on feed are animals being fed a ration of grain, silage, hay and/or protein supplement for the slaughter market that are expected to produce a carcass that will grade select or better.
