DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • DO NOT FEED DIRECTLY IN CONCENTRATED FORM.
  • Suitable for cattle over 300kg liveweight destined for local or export markets.
  • Additional lime (calcium source) will need to be included in the ration for some classes of cattle.
  • Protein meals may also be needed to increase the protein of the feedlot ration to a suitable level. This will depend on the protein level of the grain and the desired protein level in the ration.
  • Buffers (bentonite, sodium bicarbonate or Acid Buf) can be included at 1-2% of the total diet to aid in preventing acidosis especially during the introductory period.
  • Cattle need free access to fresh, cool, clean water at all times.
  • Introduce cattle to this ration gradually over a 3 week period, either by mixing higher levels of roughage in the ration or limiting the intake of the ration and supplying extra roughage in a hay rack.
  • The following table gives a sample introduction program for the cattle.

  • FEEDLOT: Mix 5% (50kg/tonne) of FEEDLOT CONCENTRATE PELLETS/MEAL with 20% roughage and 75% grain and thoroughly mix to form a balanced feedlot ration for cattle
  • PASTURE BASED: Mix 5% FEEDLOT CONCENTRATE PELLETS / MEAL with 95% grain and thoroughly mix. Can be used in a self-feeder provided adequate standing pasture is available or hay is supplied ad lib in a hay rack. Self-feeders must initially have the slides adjusted to a finger width to restrict intakes. Gradually increase slide width to allow more access to the feed over a 3 week period.
  • 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.
