SUSTAIN 12 NUTS / PELLETS

RIVERINA SUSTAIN 12 NUTS / PELLETS are a supplementary feed for Sheep and Cattle to be fed in conjunction with roughage (hay and or pasture). This feed is a low protein ‘cool’ ration ideal for controlled growth or breeder maintenance.

TYPICAL COMPOSITION

  • Barley, sorghum, other cereal grains, millrun, vegetable protein meals, legumes, molasses, vegetable oil, limestone, dicalcium phosphate, buffer, salt, ammonium sulphate, mould inhibitor, Riverina ruminant vitamin & mineral premix.
  • Base raw materials may gradually change seasonally.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  • THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE FEED. It must be fed with hay, silage and / or abundant pasture.
  • The nut is ideal for feeding sheep on the ground either in clumps or trailed out.
  • When feeding cattle, troughs are preferred over feeding on the ground as it will reduce wastage.
  • Whatever the method of feeding, it is important that there is enough trough space or there is enough feed on the ground so all animals can eat at once. This will help stop “bullies” over-consuming the pellets.
  • Listed below are some suggested feeding rates for SUSTAIN 12 NUTS / PELLETS. These feeding rates are approximate values and should only be used as a guide. The level of feeding will be determined by pasture quality and animal condition.
