The formulation of the cattle feed pellets is based on the type of cattle. Cattle feed pellets are high in energy and rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Therefore, with different composition and nutrient content, different cattle feed pellets are suitable for different types of cattle, such as bulls, cows, heifers and buffaloes.
