Grass is the main food for rams. We usually get some fresh grass once every three days.
We are trying to make food available as fresh as possible. The reason is that the food will
still contain most vitamins and minerals inside it. It will be very hard, usually, for the
farmer to get the grass during hot season. During rainy season, there will usually be
plenty of grass available every where for rams.
We usually give our rams some of the remaining or we probably can say the unused tofu
after tofu processing, which we called "ampas tahu". With this kind of food, the body size
of rams will be getting bigger faster, and since it contains more vitamins and minerals, it is
also more healthy for rams to be consumed.
Other farmers will probably give their rams some concentrate. The concentrate is usually
for cows or horses, but if I am not mistaken, there is some concentrate which is specially
made for rams. For more information, please contact your local KUD (Koperasi Unit Desa)
in your local area.
Other foods for rams can be leaves; banana leaves, corn leaves, and any others. But
please be aware that not all of rams will like these kind of foods. And it depends on your
routinely of what kind of food is usually given for your rams. Just one thing to remember is
that if you are planning to give your rams a new food, please give the food gradually by
mixing the small amount of new food with the usual food you gave for your rams. After
three to four days, then you can also give your rams the necessary amount of that new
food. Following are some pictures of foods usually consumed by rams.
