There are many situations during the year when your livestock undergo massive nutrient demand and can benefit from supplements. By having supplements available at these key times, you ensure your animals have what they need to reach their maximum potential.
Key times when supplements can be beneficial are:
Pregnant and Lambing Ewes + Lamb Survival:
We have a range of popular blocks, such as Olsson’s Lamblii and Rod’s Ewe and Lamb, to help meet the needs of pregnant and lactating ewes. There are also many loose lick options, such as StayDry’s Pre-Drop, which is a great way to increase the survival and growth rate of your lambs.
Summer Dry Feed:
Stubble paddocks can provide a good food source for livestock over the summer, but ensure you check out our tips on how to make the most of them. Also, find out why it’s a great move to use stock blocks when utilising stubbles.
If you’re unsure where to start, or if you even should be supplementing your sheep, check out the free choice system and find out why your stock knows best when it comes to their nutritional needs.
