Non-GMO Poultry Feed

The non-GMO focused trend that swept through the nation is still ongoing.  As people begin to pay more attention to the impact humans can have on the world around us, more and more are seeking to lessen their environmental footprint.  One of the ways in which farmers are doing this is by seeking out more natural, unaltered nutrition for their animals.  GMOs (which stands for “genetically modified organisms) are essentially plants that have been altered to an unnatural state by science. 

Many of the technological and agricultural advances that encouraged and were encouraged by the study and creation of GMOs have certainly been to the benefit of mankind.  However, there have been certain health risks associated with genetically altered foodstuffs, as well as moral/ethical concerns raised about “playing God” through science.  Because of this, there has been quite a bit of pushback against genetically modified feed, and many farmers are choosing to go a more natural route.

The most heavily altered crops in the United States are sugar beets, corn, tomatoes, and soy--all of which can be common ingredients in animal feed.  Luckily, at Hillsboro Feed Company, we are proud to offer a wide variety of non-GMO verified feed options designed specifically for poultry.  Our feed is tailored to a variety of age ranges for the birds, so your chickens and turkeys can have excellent food from hatchlings to harvest, without ingesting all the unnatural consequences of genetic tampering.  Our offerings run from a starter feed for chicks to free-choice feed for layers.

Hillsboro Feed Company is the go-to location for any North Alabamians looking to supply their livestock and work animals with the best, healthiest options for feed.  Their customer service skills are excellent and their products are the best around.  Visit their store at 14934 Alabama Hwy 20 W, Hillsboro, AL, or call (256) 637-2309 if you have any questions.  You can also visit them on the web, at https://www.hillsborofeedco.com/.

Animal Feed is the Key to a Non-GMO Future

If you eat dairy, eggs, meat, or other animal products, choosing items that are Non-GMO Project Verified is the single biggest way you can help protect a non-GMO future. That’s because the majority of genetically engineered crop acres in the United States are used for animal feed, and the Non-GMO Project is the only seal in the marketplace that requires ongoing GMO testing of feed.

Chicken feed may not be something you give a great deal of thought to – you go buy a bag for your hens and that’s it.
The Risks of Too Much Protein

The mantra of many chicken owners is “protein is king.” While in some situations this is not wrong, many times animals are over-fed protein or given the wrong amino acid balance.
