Livestock Nutrition

Imagine you’re strolling through the store, aisles upon aisles of options stretching before you. But…you’re not shopping for yourself; you’re shopping for another — your livestock. You reach for that bag of low-grade feed, then pause. In that moment, you realize you’re at a fork in the road, a decision point that could redefine the health and productivity of your animals. So what’s it going to be?

We all know the temptation to cut corners on costs, especially when the budget is tight. Heck, I’ve been guilty of it too — a Snickers here, a Pepsi there (oh, and I’m allergic to peanuts). But that’s not nutrition; it’s indulgence. And it’s easy to see the difference when the stakes are human health.

You wouldn’t let your kid gorge on candy and soda, not when you know it leads to sugar highs, crashes, and maybe even more serious health issues down the line. So why should it be any different for your livestock?

Remember, you’re not raising just any animals; these are your livelihood. They’re part of a system that sustains you, and what you feed them doesn’t just fill their stomachs — it affects their overall health, their ability to produce, and ultimately, your bottom line.

Imagine if your livestock could talk. What would they ask for? A varied, balanced diet that meets all their nutritional needs, most likely. Well, they may not speak, but their bodies do. And the message is clear: when animals eat better, they perform better. Their coats shine, they gain weight properly, and they’re generally happier. And happy animals are productive animals.

We’ve applied this principle at Blooming Health Farms, providing our chickens with hydroponic fodder that’s as nutritious as it is sustainable. The result? Healthier chickens and better-quality eggs.
