Urea feed for cattle: meat and milk

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am looking for suppliers/fabricants of urea cattle feed in Thailand. Factory must have ISO9001 certification and product must be export grade. Does anybody can help me by sharing links to urea producer websites in Thailand?

 

Any help is welcome. ūüôā

This is interesting. I thought people added urea and other products on farm. No expertise here but I have never seen cattle feed as such for sale (other than hay bales).

In Thailand I am certain all the big cattle feed manufactures  CP group. or the Betagro group.

mix urea in they cattle  feed , mainly pelleted feed it is a cheap way of increasing the protein of a feed concentrate ,and all the feed company's are ISO9001.

Is it export grade ?,I am not certain , and I think they export market is small ,maybe only Malaysia ,Cambodia ,not  certain about Vietnam.

You will have to e-mail the company's  or phone the head office ,or may be the feed mills them self's  for more information .company address are on the web

Most dairy farms will buy in  cattle feed ready mixed in bags, like pig feed, in bags, some buy in the ingredients ,i.e. soya, cassava ,palm  meal maize and mix it on the farm .

Uera has a bad  name in Thailand no famer will mix it with they feed ,many years ago some famers actually mixed urea prilles with they cattle feed ,some cow died of urea poisoning ,a case in the UK ,famer had a cattle yard with straw in ,unknown to him a bag of urea fertilizer burst .mixed in with the straw ,cattle where put in the yard and ate   the straw and the urea I think 2-3 died and a lot had to be treated for urea poisoning, and some that recovered where not the same as before.

And Thais believe ,not true, urea in cattle  feed gives you an infertility problem.

KS, well there you go. Thanks for filling me in. Now I have a question, does anyone use a tractor driven or static baler for part of the silage or hay feed system here?

In a nut shell no,what bit of silage that is made here is cut and chopped with a forage harvester ,for baling silage it will need to be rapped in plastic ,normally round bales are used ,and a rapping machine ,and the plastic sheeting to go with it has to be imported ,and as we know with import tax etc ,it does not make economical sense .

Not a lot of hay is made ,for some reason Pangola  grass is mainly  used for hay ,it seems a very brittle grass ,by the time it has been cut and turned and baled all the leaf ,has gone and it is all just stork's, with not a lot of feed value .

Making hay in Thailand is not easy ,has to be made in the rainy season ,when the grass grows(unless you have irrigation),it can take 3-4 days to cut and bale grass,,and some years ,not this one,rain will intervene ,a bit like making hay in a UK summer.

Nearly all bales in Thailand are  baled rice straw ,in our area the Italian Ciloria balers seem popular ,they are a few old New Holland balers about ,getting past they sell by date ,a lot are worked by Ford 6610's,but I have seen a good few worked with 36-50hp  Kubota tractors.

As for static balers not seen one of those about for a long time ,a while ago  some photos of some static balers  where posted on TV.

Spot on.
This is Thailand. Not listening or understanding of instructions or warning. "A lot helps a lot."
This goes for everything, as long as it is cheap. Fertiliser, pesticides, medicine, feed supplements, etc.

Go to any Kubota dealer in Thailand. They have the market sowed up for most of isaan. We're dealing with rice straw not all alfalfa. I have not seen a unit for round bails in this area..

The Kubota square baler is 395,000 baht, priced it this week locally. Same price on their web site. Too rich for me, at 15baht a bale to get someone else to do it, it would take me 20 years to pay it off.

Not sure what you're looking for, urea helps to bind the feed in pellets.

https://www.cargill.co.th/en/animal-nutrition

Good advert for Cargill ,except they do not make cattle fed here in Thailand .

If you have been here in Thailand a while you may know of Sunvally , the big broiler  company I think   they where a British company, Cargill took them over and have a lot of farm in Thailand ,they have about 3 million birds in my area alone.and manufacture feed for there own farms 

Not certain if they are in to pigs in Thailand,but not cattle.

That is a lot 395k, and you will need a tractor ,they are  web sights about selling second hand equipment , maybe a Kubota dealer has one ,and as I said they are the Italian one's and before any one lifts they hands in horror , secondhand equipment can be fixed and ,and labour is not that expensive ,could be a lot cheaper than buying in new.
