RED BRIDGE FARM FEED
Professionally formulated and milled in small batches to give you the freshest, most nutritious poultry and swine feed.
We know you have many choices when it comes to Poultry and Swine feed.
When we make our feed, our mission is to empower you with a resource to help you raise beautiful, healthy layers that produce exceptional quality eggs and high-caliber meat from poultry and pork.
We begin by sourcing all of our ingredients close to home, with many of them coming directly from farms here in Stevens County. We then add all our ingredients into our grinder/mixer, meticulously preparing each batch of feed for your animals.
Small Batch Milling allows us to produce a high quality feed that is always fresh when it hits the shelf. It has not sat in a warehouse waiting to be delivered for weeks or months at a time. With SBM we are able to control the quantity and produce only what is needed for that week’s order. Our mission is to give you the highest quality feed for your poultry or hogs. That’s what we want for our farm and that’s what we make for you.
Professionally Formulated Ration
Developing our feed has taken a lot of work, study, trial and error. Earlier this year we were fortunate enough to link up with nutritionist Jeff Mattocks of Fertrell. All our formulas have now been professionally developed and designed by Jeff. Here is some of what he has to say about our new rations:
Starter/Grower now with Fish Meal!
Why Fish Meal?
In his book Feeding Pasture-Raised Poultry, Mattocks explains: "Fish meal helps to balance all of the essential amino acids, most importantly methionine and lysine." In addition, “This helps to stimulate the bird’s appetite because poultry have an instinctive craving for meat proteins." In field studies done by Fertrell, they have found that meat birds fed a ration with fish meal had a higher live weight averaging 1.9 pounds more than those without fish as well as a better feed to weight conversion.
What this means to you is that with fish meal, your birds should convert the feed into meat better and grow bigger in a shorter time. With a better feed conversion you will spend less on feed per pound of meat that you raise for your family.
Now Including Probiotics
Beneficial bacteria added to the diet aid digestion and nutrient absorption resulting in faster growth and better overall health. Direct fed micobials also replenish the beneficial bacteria flora, those "good bacteria" which directly compete with destructive or harmful pathogens such as Coccidia, E. coli and Salmonella spp. Excess beneficial bacteria are excreted in the manure where they help correct the balance of bacteria in the litter. -Feeding Pasture-Raised Poultry by Jeff Mattocks
