Mohammed , M. Baulube and I. Abstract A study on the formulation and production of multi-nutrient blocks for feeding ruminants using local feed ingredients was conducted at the University of Maiduguri Teaching and Research Farm in October, Two formulations Fl and F2 were developed where Fl had molasses while F2 had no molasses. Composition of feed ingredients for dry matter ranges from Ether extract values ranged from 4. Crude fibre ranged from

By Dr. Minerals and vitamins account for a very small proportion of daily dry matter intake in beef cattle diets and can sometimes be overlooked in a herd nutritional program. Although minerals and vitamins are needed as a very small percentage of dietary nutrients, they are very important in beef cattle nutritional programs for proper animal function, such as bone development, immune function, muscle contractions, and nervous system function. Cattle growth and reproductive performance can be compromised if a good mineral program is not in place. With annual cost of production per cow generally being several hundred dollars, the cost of a high-quality mineral and vitamin supplement program is a relatively small investment. Many free-choice mineral and vitamin mixes are formulated for 2- or 4-ounce daily consumption rates.

A urea-mineral lick block without molasses ULB was manufactured as a feed supplement for local cattle and goats. This type of lick block was of acceptable hardness and was easily transported and offered to the animals.
