Animals are creatures that eat only natural food and choose only the best quality. Animals like cows, buffaloes, chicken, pigs, ducks, goats, lambs and others are also consumed by man and that is why those who have a poultry or animal shed, need to provide only high nutrition for the animals as they need to stay healthy and fit for the consumers. There are two basic foods for animals, one is fodder and the other is forage.
As food is the most important criteria for these animals, animal feed manufactures have to focus on providing healthy food to the animals timely. There are other animals like dogs, cats, horse etc which are not consumed, yet they need to be healthy, but as they are domestic animals they depend on their masters for their food. Different animals need different nutrition levels depending on their age.
