|As Fed||Dry Matter|
- RIVERINA TRUEBLEND is free flowing and less viscous than molasses.
- The sugars contained in molasses help improve the utilisation of urea in RIVERINA TRUEBLEND which leads to more protein being produced.
- The improved intake of nutrients will stimulate the microbes in the rumen, leading to increased utilization of the pasture.
- VERSATILE – Can be fed to both sheep and cattle, even in the same paddock.
- Manufactured to strict quality control standards for incoming raw materials and the finished product.
- Formulated in accordance with current research into ruminant nutrition and mixed using a variety of quality raw materials.
This feed contains Bovatec® which supplies lasalocid sodium at 250mg/kg on an ‘as fed’ basis to improve weight gain and feed efficiency in cattle and sheep.
