Definition of complete feed
Complete feed is a set of feedstuff, minerals, vitamins, amino acids and feed additives (such as phytase enzyme, multi-enzymes, antioxidants, toxin binder, etc.) which is processed in different sizes and shapes (crumbles, pellets and extruded); It can meet all the broilers’ nutritional needs and therefore leads to desirable growth.
The importance of special indirect steaming in manufacturing process of Golden Feed (prepared in the form of pellet and crumble)
- Increasing the effective fiber of feed pellets to improve digestibility in the poultry digestive system
- Protecting nutritional value of the product at all cooking processes
- Gelatinous cooking of starches
- Increasing digestion and absorbing feed nutrients due to the special technology of Golden feed
- A significant increase in PDI (pellet durability index)
- Preventing the degradation of B-complex vitamins in the process of cooking pelleted feed
- Manufacturing feed with the highest quality and the most reasonable prices for broiler chickens
- Taking advantage of using heat-sensitive additives during the production of pelleted feed
The performance of Golden Feed in broiler chickens
Standard concentrate has been used in formulating Golden Feed and accordingly all the nutritional requirements of the birds’ body have been provided with the highest quality. Using Golden feed acceptably increases the nutritional feed intake and improves the body weight gain in comparison with the mashed rations. Due to the lower speed of mashed ration consumption, the possibility of feed sticking to the beak will increase and also the feed may remain longer in the digestive tract. Using Golden Feed can increase the amount of feed consumption. The results showed that using Golden feed can reduce gizzard growth and increase the growth of small and large intestines; in addition, they can provide greater absorption surfaces because pelleted Golden Feed has higher digestibility than mashed feeds and even the normal pelleted feeds and can increase absorption rate with higher nutrients digestibility in the intestines and improve the growth of the digestive system. Thanks to the accurate formulation and developed technology applied in the production of pelleted Golden Feed , all the broilers’ requirements have been provided to achieve optimal and economic weight without using any animal protein source. Using animal proteins in the rations of broilers has led to various results, because some of the characteristics of high quality animal protein sources are having a TVN less than 80 and lack of pathogenic microbes and fungal infections. Furthermore, Golden feed will increase the population of lactobacillus (beneficial bacteria), reduce the population of E. coli and Salmonella (Harmful bacteria to the digestive system) in the small and large intestines of broiler chickens, and as a result they can improve the function of the digestive system, reduce losses caused by metabolic diseases and improve immune system function.
As was stated earlier, pellet feed significantly leads to an improvement in feed consumption.
Using pelleted feed, compared to mash form, results in improved feed digestibility, not separating diet particles by bird, reducing feed contaminations that subsequently leads to bird weight gain, improved feed conversion ratio and bird performance. Further, feed particle size affects birds’ performance. The more uniform feed in particle size, the easier it is consumed by chickens and the possibility of selecting the particles will be declined.

Feed consumption management
Proper management of feed consumption is one of the critical factors influencing the birds’ performance. As depicted in the following graph, there is a significant discrepancy between the weight gain of birds fed on pellet feed and mash feed in day 14. Also, feed wastage is drastically minimized in the group fed on Sepahan Daneh Golden Feed in comparison with the chickens fed on mashed or pellet feed ( respectively 5% versus 15% and 10%). One of the reasons behind reduced feed wastage and well-balanced increase in body weight is the quality of GoldenFeed ingredients that uniformly provides the poultry nutritional requirements. Proper energy balance in NBF (Nutritious & well-Balanced Feed), using high- quality sources with high protein digestibility and appropriate amino acids profile boost the immune system, improve growth rate and increase broiler chickens’ body weight. Essential vitamins and minerals and Linoleic acid as well ,in line with the latest catalogue of Ross requirements, guarantees and maintains the improved performance until the end of the rearing period.
What results will poultry get after using NBF?
Adjusting Golden Feed formulation according to ideal amino acids pattern
Regarding the advances in nutrition, the basis of offering diets for poultry has confronted great changes. In modern methods, diets are offered using highly precise criteria such as ideal or digestible amino acid that in addition to thorough provision of birds’ body requirement, the need to using protein sources is less, that is noteworthy both for economic reasons and bioenvironmental issues.
Using an NBF for the poultry and the effect of amino acids imbalance on decreasing protein efficiency and using nutrition are the topics that have been investigated many times. The findings of the studies have shown that excess amino acids that participate in imbalance stimulate the catabolism pathways of amino acids and thereby incur the decomposition of all amino acids and increase in wastage of limiting amino acids and eventually feed wastage. Based on ideal amino acids ratios, lysine is regarded as the basic amino acid and the other amino acids requirements are presented according to some percentage of lysine requirement. According to the fact that reporting amino acid requirements based on ideal amino acid is not influenced by factors such as bird’s strain and energy level, this method is raised as an appropriate method to estimate and determine amino acids requirements.
Balanced levels of methionine and lysine as the first limiting amino acids especially at the onset of growth period have crucial role in absorption of calcium, protein synthesis and muscle growth, production of hormones, enzyme, and antibody. Unbalanced level of essential amino acids result in a reduction of antibody response and immune system response.
The effect of a balanced levels of amino acids particularly threonine, tryptophan, arginine and Leucine has been proved to increase weight gain, breast muscle weight, improve feed conversion ratio, increase lymphoid organs weight and improve immune system performance.
The effects of using GL-Part glucose precursor in GoldenFeed composition
Glucose is considered as an important energy source for living creatures. Since typical feeds may not provide the body’s required energy, birds are susceptible to metabolic disorders due to hypoglycemia. To prevent such disorders, it is necessary to maintain an ideal level of blood glucose; one of the best options to prevent such disorders is using compounds containing energy sources such as Propylene glycol.
Propylene glycol transforms from gluconeogenesis into glucose in liver and prevents the accumulation of fatty acids and keton bodies in liver by changing body’s metabolic reactions.
Using propylene glycol in the composition of GoldenFeed leads to an improvement of energy balance and reduction in the risk of susceptibility to metabolic diseases such as fatty liver in broilers.
Some merits of using GL-Part glucose precursor in GoldenFeed:
- Making ATP in liver, it provides the energy requirement of the broiler chickens’ body
- Reduction of fatty acid levels and BHBA of blood plasma prevent the bird’s susceptibility to metabolic diseases
- Propylene glycol has high digestibility and decomposition speed in birds’ digestive system
- Rearing costs are reduced by the improved birds’ immune system performance and prevention of metabolic diseases
MANAGING BROILER CHICKENS - LIGHTING PROGRAMS MANAGEMENT
Using complete Feed, compared with mashed rations, increases the risk of metabolic diseases such as ascites and stroke; this is because of higher feed intake which results in higher growth rate (due to the higher growth rate of the muscular system vs. the growth of organs such as heart). Therefore, applying the following three methods regarding nutritional management can prevent the incidence of these diseases and the incurred losses:
1. Diluting the rations (when using complete feed is not possible)
2. Reducing the feed distribution or limiting feed consumption (this method is not recommended due to a reduction in energy efficiency of broiler chickens)
3. Using a suitable lighting management program: This managerial method is much more favorable than other methods and can create more desirable results. One of the factors that causes metabolic diseases is high growth rate. Therefore, the risk of developing metabolic diseases (ascites, stroke, paralysis, etc.) in flocks fed with complete feed is more than those fed with mashed feed. This proves the necessity of applying suitable dark/light cycle in order to balance the growth rate of supporting organs. Firstly, imposing lighting restrictions will decrease the amount of feed intake and the growth rate will be more balanced without the chicken’s activity or any reduction in energy efficiency. Secondly, the secretion of some hormones like melatonin that occurs in the darkness will decrease the blood pressure in pulmonary artery. As a result, the pressure on the right ventricle of the heart and consequently the amount of stroke and ascites will be dramatically reduced. Hence, the heart will have more opportunity to grow and be able to pump blood flow to all the body organs. Moreover, the heart does not work too much and the heart failure is less likely to be developed. Therefore, susceptibility of chickens to nutritional ascites, sudden death syndrome, and ultimately mortality will be dramatically reduced. Studies have also shown that applying proper dark/light cycle will lead to relaxation and silence in broilers flocks and reduce environmental stress during the breeding season which in turn will strengthen the immune system of chickens.
