PASTUREPRO® SHEEP

RIVERINA PASTUREPRO® SHEEP is a high protein, vitamin and mineral supplement for growing lambs, breeding ewes and rams.
This product is designed to be fed in conjunction with abundant pastures.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Cottonseed meal, soyabean meal, urea, vegetable oil, dicalcium phosphate, ammonium sulphate, mould inhibitor, Bovatec®, 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 sheep on pasture.
  • Pasture should be in abundant supply and sheep should have access to a reliable supply of clean water at all times.
  • For best results start supplementation before sheep start losing weight.

INTRODUCTION:

  • Initially feed only salt in well drained troughs until intakes reduce to less than 20g/head/day.
  • Then provide PASTUREPRO® SHEEP in well drained or open ended troughs or half drums.
  • Troughs should initially be a minimum of 200m away from the watering points.

FEEDING:

  • After several days move the troughs/drums out into the paddock and well away from the water points. This will reduce intakes and encourage stock to graze the paddocks.
  • Do not allow troughs to be emptied. This can lead to urea toxicity as sheep can over-consume when troughs are refilled.
  • To help boost breeding performance feed 6-8 weeks prior to mating.
  • Do not feed with any other urea sources, such as liquid supplements, pellets, blocks etc.
  • Monitor intakes closely when starting sheep.
  • Protect feeding points from weather.

TARGET INTAKES:

  • ADULT SHEEP: 50g/head/day
  • Pasture quality, animal mineral status and condition will influence the level of intake.
  • Refer to “Advice and Warnings for Feeding Dry Supplements”.
  • DISCONTINUE FEEDING IF INTAKES EXCEED 100g/head/day and contact your local Riverina representative for advice.
