Nutrition And Feeding

A valuable feature of geese is their ability to consume green forage and other inexpensive crop ingredients. The intake of 5 7 kg green forage or 1.1 1.3 kg grass meal yields a 1-kg gain in weight. Reduction in protein content in diets without negative impact on productivity permits the utilization of locally available feed resources.[5] The semi-intensive system of fattening geese that includes cut green forage has a positive influence on feed utilization, higher content of meat in the carcass, and reduced fat. In contrast, when crude fiber intake is increased appreciably, a decline in goose performance can be observed due to decreased metabolizable energy and feed conversion.
