DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED. It has been designed to supplement good quality hay and/or pasture feeding.
  • During the introduction period it is critical there is enough feeder space to allow all lambs to eat at the same time.
  • When introducing stock to RIVERINA LAMB FEEDLOT PELLETS, feed intakes should be increased gradually over a 2 to 3 week period to minimise the risk of acidosis.
  • When using self feeders the adjustment of the slides is very important so that the target intakes below are achieved.
  • The slides should be adjusted to a pencil width when feeding starts.
  • Always ensure stock have access to clean, cool, fresh water at all times.
