PASTUREPRO® BULL SUPPLEMENT

RIVERINA PASTUREPRO® BULL SUPPLEMENT is a high protein, vitamin and mineral supplement for growing out young bulls and preparing herd bulls for joining when grazing abundant mature standing pasture.

 

 

Available without medication as a PCAS approved supplement.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Cottonseed meal, urea, vegetable oil, dicalcium phosphate, magnesium oxide, ammonium sulphate,  Flavo®, limestone, mould inhibitor, salt and Riverina ruminant vitamin & mineral premix.
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED. It is designed as a supplement to be fed to cattle on pasture.
  • Pasture should be in abundant supply and cattle should have access to a reliable supply of clean water at all times.

FEEDING:

  • Initially feed 0.25% of body weight/day for 2 weeks (eg. 1.25kg for a 500kg bull) then feed up to 0.5% of body weight/day (eg. 2.5kg for a 500kg bull) in open ended troughs protected from the weather. If intakes exceed 0.5% of body weight/day contact your local Riverina representative.
  • Troughs should initially be located a minimum of 200m away from watering points.
  • After several days move the troughs out into the paddock and well away from the water points. This will reduce intakes and encourage stock to graze the paddocks.
  • Monitor the intake of the supplement periodically to ensure they remain at target feeding rates.
  • Do not allow troughs to be emptied. This can lead to urea toxicity as cattle can over-consume when troughs are refilled.
  • To help boost breeding performance start feeding at least 60 days prior to mating.
  • Protect feeding points from weather.
  • Feed and water should be available at all times.
  • Contact your local Riverina representative for more advice on preparing bulls for joining.
