Gamebird and Duck Feeds Available Soon

Wild pheasant standing in a forst covered fieldModesto Milling will soon be producing two new product offerings to respond to demand for feeds for gamebird growth and duck egg production: Organic Whole Grain Gamebird #745 and Organic Duck Layer Pellets #755.

The Organic Whole Grain Gamebird formula is a complete feed for growing and adult gamebirds, ducks, geese, turkeys and chickens. It has 20% protein and 4.6% fat levels, which are helpful for growth; feather quality, brightness and darkness; energy levels and muscle development.

The gamebird feed is made up of half whole grains like whole corn, peas, wheat, milo, barley, oats and black oil sunflower seeds – all of which are organically grown. The other half of the ingredients are pelletized items like soy bean meal, alfalfa, herbs, essential oils, vitamin mix, kelp, and diatomaceous earth. The combination is designed to meet breeders’ desires to provide a “just harvested” type of feed regimen, while adding aesthetic and flavor qualities that will be attractive to the birds all in a way that reduces wasted feed.

The Organic Duck Layer Pellets are designed to be a standalone feed, but can also be used in combination with a pasture-based diet. Organic feed is a major component of organic egg production. The duck layer pellets have 17% protein and 2.6% fat levels, which are helpful for aiding in the egg production process.

If egg quality is important to you, you will be happy to know that our customers have shared testimonies of stronger shells, darker yolks and better flavor while using our layer feeds. We have also heard many stories about the layers having healthier plumage, better meat taste and higher production levels.

Both new feed offerings will be available in 50 pound bags in coming weeks, but you can pre-order them now at http://www.modestomilling.com/order.html. If you have questions or want to determine which feed is right for you and your flock, please contact Chris Wagner at 209-523-9167 ext.9107 or cwagner@modestomilling.com.
