Nutrition of Ostriches
Ostriches are fed on pastures such as alfalfa, wheat and alfalfa hay produced by the farmers. The birds on pastures receive additional energy and protein supplements to ensure a balanced ration. This will include energy sources such as maize, barley, oats; protein sources such as soya and canola; and roughage sources such as alfalfa and bran. Vitamins and minerals are also added. No animal protein sources are used and no growth stimulants are administered. The meat is free of any systematically administered antibiotics. KKI partakes in a rigorous residue (growth stimulants and other chemicals) monitoring program on all meat.
