CONDAMINE FEEDLOT SUPPLEMENT – LIME

RIVERINA CONDAMINE FEEDLOT SUPPLEMENT - LIME is a palatable, free flowing molasses based liquid supplement to be mixed with grain and roughage to form a balanced feed for feedlotting cattle. It is suitable to be fed to growing/finishing cattle of most ages and supplies essential nutrients required for performance.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Molasses, limestone, ammonia sulphate, urea and other nonprotein nitrogen sources, Rumensin®, salt, organic zinc, Riverina ruminant vitamin & mineral premix
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • DO NOT FEED DIRECTLY IN CONCENTRATED FORM.
    It has been designed to be included at the rate of 4-5% (40 to 50 kg/tonne) in a feedlot ration. If young calves/cattle (under 300kg’s) are being fed, additional sources of protein may be required.
  • It is recommended that a rumen buffer be used in the ration during the starter phase as this will aid in the prevention of acidosis. Sodium bentonite at 2% or sodium bicarbonate at 0.5-1.0% of the ration is adequate.
  • Cattle must always have access to clean, cool, fresh water.
  • To ensure uniform mixing, RIVERINA CONDAMINE FEEDLOT SUPPLEMENT – LIME should be the last ingredient added to the mixing wagon.
  • When feeding cattle, high grain diets should be gradually introduced to the cattle to allow the rumen to adapt and to avoid acidosis/grain poisoning. Small amounts should be fed at first, slowly increasing over a 3 week period. The following table gives a sample introduction program for the cattle.

  • MANAGEMENT:- The adaption period where cattle are changed from grazing pasture to a high energy grain based diet is of critical importance. Refer to “Notes on Feedlotting Cattle” or contact your local Riverina representative for more detailed information.
