Turkey Grower Feed
The turkey grower feed is highly balanced in nutrition and normally given to turkey growers from four (4) weeks of age.
- Our formulas are designed to maximize growth, meat production, and maintain bird health.
- The feeds have been specifically designed to meet your production goals.
- We have extensive experience formulating antibiotic-free rations.
- Turkeys should be fed nutritionally balanced diets for healthy growth and development and to ensure that there is enough protein, calories, minerals, and fat to meet the turkey’s nutritional requirements.
- Feeds are often adjusted to match the growth stages of the birds. Growing turkeys are fed a “grower” mixture.
- Each type of feed includes the proper balance of protein, energy, fiber, fat, and other elements such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamins.
Turkey is reared either for meat or kept as breeders for hatching young turkey (Poults). However, in feeding turkeys which are to be marketed as meat, three diets are used which are starter, grower and finisher diets.
Thus Vantage turkey feeds are of three types capturing the nutritional needs for the different stages of growth of the animal. We have:
- Turkey starter diet ( fed from 0-8 weeks of age)
- Turkey grower diet (fed from 8-16 weeks of age)
- Turkey finisher diet (fed from 16-24 weeks of age)
All three diets are in mash form and should be fed ad libitum and alone to turkeys from day old till 24 weeks of age.
- Grain by-products
- Plant protein meal
- Vegetable oil
- Vitamins and mineral premix
- Improved growth rate
- Better bone mineralization
- Lower FCR
- Enhanced FER
Feed should be stored in cool dry place away from direct sunlight.

- Note that the above feed intakes are only indicative. The data will vary based on season, sex of the bird, lighting, shed conditions, disease status, and other environmental conditions.
- The house should be ideal for turkey rearing and should be cleaned thoroughly and regularly.
- Clean, cool, fresh water should be available at all times. Any wet litter near water points should be removed regularly.
- Turkeys should have access to insoluble grit sometimes to aid digestion.
- It is highly advisable that chicken feed shouldn’t be used as a substitute for turkey feed. The protein and calcium requirements between the two kinds of birds are completely different. Turkeys, for instance, require higher levels of protein in their feed.
- Make sure you procure a grower mix that has a 20% to 24% protein level for better and leaner meat. Our offered product contains the optimal protein level.
