Meeting the protein, energy, vitamin and mineral requirements of lambs when supplementary feeding grain is essential for profitable lamb finishing.
LAMBGROW PELLET is designed to compliment the essential requirements of Vitamins and Minerals as well as rumen buffers that are required on a daily basis when grain feeding sheep. Lambs in particular are sensitive to trace mineral imbalances and dietary shortfalls, so, it’s important to the profitability of supplementary feeding that the key nutrients are delivered each day in a palatable uniform way with consistent intake levels.
Lambgrow Pellet from Compass Feeds is a flexible, low inclusion product that is designed to be fed in a wide range of production strategies including pasture supplementary programs, as an addition to pre-mating grain rations, intensive lamb feedlots and as an essential additive for ewes with lambs at foot that are being fed high grain diets, or in confinement feeding systems.
When sheep of all age groups are fed high grain diets and self feeders are used , quick adaption to grain safely is a high requirement. LAMBGROW allows quick feed adaption by Lambs and older Sheep and supports rapid transition to grain based diets with the aid of Bovatec™ which supports increased feed conversion efficiency and growth rate. BovatecTM is also added as a control for coccidiosis in sheep.
Compass Feeds recommends that 2 x 25kg bags of Lambgrow Pellet be used in the first few weeks of feeding, timing changes during the starting phase is critical in lamb and sheep feeding management. Once lambs and sheep have adapted to grain, then reduce the quantity to 25 kg to the tonne of finished feed.
