FEATURES

  • 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.

QUALITY PRODUCT

  • 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.
