Several competing goals must be reconciled to achieve optimal ostrich growth from three months to harvest. The AOF Ostrich Grower formula delicately balances growth speed with bird health to minimize the incidence of physical abnormalities commonly associated with ostrich production, while maintaining the highest possible feed efficiency. AOF never compromises on the taste and quality of the resulting ostrich meat and additional byproducts.
Feeding Directions: Feed as the sole ration to ostriches 3-15 months of age. Ensure sufficient feeder space so all birds can eat simultaneously and ensure clean water is available at all times. Distribute into feeders; never on the bare ground. Protect from rain and direct sunlight once distributed, and discard remaining pellets from previous day onto ground before providing fresh feed. Expect to gradually increase daily feed from <3lbs/day at 3 months to 4-5lbs/day by 9 months.
Product Form and Packaging: 7/32" pellets; 50lb net weight paper sacks, 1-ton palletized totes, or bulk.
Storage: Store in cool (below 80F), clean environment free of moisture, insects, rodents, and pests. Do not distribute feed with signs of mold or other contamination. Use within one year of manufacturing date.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.
Raising ostriches requires 1/3 the fresh water, 1/50th the land, and generates 1/10th the greenhouse gas emissions of cattle.
Our solar-powered facilities, locally sourced feed, and systems to convert waste into chemical-free compost are just a few of the ways we conserve resources.
We utilize every possible byproduct and are continually looking for innovative ways to achieve a net-zero impact on the environment.
We go to great lengths to ensure our flock is healthy, happy, and humanely handled from hatch to harvest.
We understand being hesitant to spend money on something unfamiliar, but don't let fear of the unknown stop you. We stand behind our products and are very confident you'll love them. If you're disappointed in your purchase for any reason, we'll refund your order, up to $100.
NOTE: We expect an overwhelming number of initial orders. Although some orders will ship as early as 5/31, fulfillment may be delayed until the first or second week of June while we catch up. Please wait to place an order if you require a more exact delivery window.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we dust off our fulfillment gloves!!
