Myanmar is providing adequate feed for cattle farming systems as it has a vast land area. Feeding management depends on the prevailing farming systems. In most systems, farmers use a combination of grazing on common land areas, and stall feeding through cut and carry forages and crop by-products. Farmers with a large number of cattle often use machine for chopping agricultural by-products for animal feed.
In the farming system dominated by paddy production, during the wet season, rice straw from the previous season along with green feed collected from roadside are used as the main source of feed. During the dry season, cattle are left to graze on the rice stubble. In the dry zone farming systems, cattle can graze in common land areas. Farmers prepare homemade feed from a diversity of agricultural by-products such as bean straw, groundnut cake, rice bran, corn by-products or peanut plants to feed their cattle.
