DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED. It has been designed to be fed with quality hay and/or pasture feeding.
  • RIVERINA 14% STUD CATTLE PELLETS / MEAL can be fed at 0.5-1.5% bodyweight / head / day using:
    • Troughs – split amount to be fed between 2 feeds. It is critical to have enough trough space for all animals to eat at the same time.
    • Self-Feeders – the slides initially should be adjusted to a finger width to restrict intakes. Gradually increase slide width to allow more access to the feed over a 2 month period. Feeders should be placed at the opposite end of the paddock to water troughs to promote grazing. Feed intakes should be monitored especially when commencing to feed.
    • Partial Mixed Ration – Can be mixed with silage/hay and other ingredients to form a complete or partial mixed ration to be fed in a semi feedlot situation.

Typical Program:

  • Start background feeding RIVERINA 14% STUD CATTLE PELLETS / MEAL 6 months prior to sale. Commence feeding at 0.5% of body weight. This can be gradually increased over a couple of months to 1.0% of body weight.
  • 2 months prior to sale the cattle can be put into yards to finish them. At this time feeding levels can be increased to 1.5% of body weight and fed in conjunction with good quality grassy hay supplied ad lib in hay racks.
  • Ensure that there is continuous access to fresh, cool, clean water.
  • When feeding cattle, high grain feeds should be gradually introduced, to allow the rumen to adapt and to avoid acidosis / grain poisoning. For stud cattle it is recommended that this be done over at least 2 months.

NOTE: There are many factors involved in the preparation of stud cattle for sale, so contact your Riverina representative for more complete advice on how to feed your stud cattle.
