There is a wide range of diets for beef cattle from low intake products like the dry supplements to feedlot diets. Cattle all require a roughage source for efficient digestion to occur and our diets must be fed a roughage source such as pasture, hay or silage.
RIVERINA PASTUREPRO® EIGHT + R is a high protein, vitamin and mineral supplement for beef cattle. This product MUST be fed with abundant pasture.
- Protein meals, urea, vegetable oil, dicalcium phosphate, ammonium sulphate, limestone, bentonite, mould inhibitor, Rumensin®, 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.
- For best results start supplementation before cattle start losing weight.
- Initially feed only salt or PASTUREPRO® CALPHOS, in well drained troughs until intakes reduce to less than150g / head / day.
- Then provide PASTUREPRO® EIGHT + R in well drained or open ended troughs or half drums.
- Troughs should initially be a minimum of 200m away from watering points.
- 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 cattle 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 cattle.
- Protect feeding points from weather.
- ADULT CATTLE: 220g / head / day
- WEANER CATTLE: 135g / 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:
- ADULT CATTLE: 450g / head / day;
- WEANER CATTLE: 275g / head / day.
- Contact your local Riverina representative for advice.
