Nutrians prefer to eat vegetable food. As they get used to people incredibly fast, they can be called, and the animals will take food directly from their hands. Do not just forget that the nutria are strong enough, so they can easily transfer their feeders to the place they want.
In nature, these animals eat all kinds of shoots, or rather their juicy parts, as well as roots and leaves. They eat those herbs that grow near the water. Very good, if the farm is located near a pond, on the shore of which there is a lot of juicy vegetation. In this case, from the beginning of spring to the end of autumn, it will be possible to actively use this practically free feed base, which is presented by nature itself.
If nutria weighs 5 kilograms, then it should be given from 1 to 2 kilograms of natural foods per day. Some of the plants that are cut off, animals do not eat. In nature, nutria are eaten not only by plants, but also by leeches, toothless, and also by the fish that died. To breed animals was really successful, it is important to feed them rationally. Do not underfeed or overfeed these animals, as this will damage their health.
When feeding animals, it is necessary to take into account not only how much they weigh, but also their age, and also the conditions in which they are kept. It is important that the fatness of each animal is normal. Under no circumstances should they lose weight, but obesity is also harmful. If the beast is normally well-fed, then there is always deferred fat in the groin. If the animal does not move much, then this is a sign that it has obesity.
It is important that only high-quality feeds are used to feed nutrients. Especially carefully it is necessary to approach this in the case of those females who wait for the kids. In summer, it is necessary that in nutrition of nutrients there should be 2/3 of mixed fodder and just a third of grass. It is also necessary to give a few such feeds, which are protein. In winter it is necessary to feed mixed fodder, juicy roots, hay, as well as feed, which in their origin are animals.
We need to feed the animals twice a day. A third of the whole diet, calculated for a day, is given in the morning, and the rest – in the evening. First, different concentrates are given, and then only those foods that are juicy, and only at the end – rough. It is important that the food is fresh, free of mold, rot.
When the females have a suction period, they need to be fed three times a day. Likewise, the young are fed. Small animals eat different kinds of cereals, beans. But you can not feed them only with grain, as this animal can become obese. It is important that the food is varied.
