  Feeding tips for the finishing phase:
 

• A portion of the grain component can be substituted to great advantage with Molatek Molasses Meal.
• Grind small grains fine.
• Coarsely grind maize (grit).
• Grind roughage with a 50 mm sieve.
• Maize can be partly substituted with small grains (50% with barley or triticale, and 20% with wheat) and 50% with grain sorghum or in total with hominy chop.
• Diets that are too dry (without silage) usually limit intake. Add 5-10% (± 100 kg) water per ton of feed.
