In India the animal feed industry is of recent origin. There are today as many as 14 plants in the organized sector. All of them have excellent facilities for quality control and are well equipped for chemical analysis of raw materials and the finished products. The compound feeds for cattle are finding large markets all over India because of the increased effort to produce more milk products. It is anticipated that the capacity of this industry in India is likely to increase rapidly.

India has the largest cattle, buffalo and goat population according to latest census. Poultry feed is needed to produce poultry, a substantial part of the food industry. The size of food industry depends on population, which is not constant. With animals, feed plants coming up in high cities especially in Chennai, Kolkata and Mumbai. They are producing top quality poultry & cattle feed. It is expected that in the next few years the animal feed industry in India would rank among the major industries. It can be predicted that any entrepreneur into this project, will be successful.

Cattle feed and feed additives are used for improving the quality of feed to enhance yield and overall cattle’s health. Cattle feed are gaining popularities mainly due to the enhance performance and increasing application such as growth promoter, prevention and cure of diseases and for improving feed digestibility in cattle. India’s Cattle feed industry, which is currently at $15 billion, is poised to double and touch $ 30 billion by 2020 to cater to the growing protein requirements of the country.

Large ruminants like cattle play an important role in the rural economy of the country. Population pressure on land necessitates devoting most of the cultivable land for production of crops for direct human consumption and very limited area is made available for growing fodder crops. Thus most of our livestock have to depend on crop residues and by-products.

The former two are potentially digestibility depends upon access to them by rumen microbes. In general, less than half the nutrients in bagasses are digested by the animals due to high degree of lignification of the material. The accessibility of the cellulose, himicellulose fraction can be increased by several methods thus increasing the nutritive value of the products.

The usage of molasses for cattle feeding, particularly with additives such as urea and phosphoric acid. While molasses is an excellent source of carbohydrate, it has practically no protein content. It is used as a cattle feed. Bagasse value very low energy and protein but it is a useful source of fiber. Could use up to 25% in milking cow ration.

Annual molasses production output has averaged about 916 000 metric tons. Of this, about 67 percent is exported, 17 percent is used by the distilleries, and 16 percent is for animal feed, etc.
