Pen Fattening Meal
A high energy complete pen fattening meal, formulated to meet all nutrients requirements of a cattle in the feedlot.
The feed is highly palatable and intake averages 3.5% of live mass per day with average daily gain of 1.8kg from an animal averaging 350kg live mass.
This scientifically formulated feed is designed to finish penned beef cattle within the normal range of 70-90days depending on the class of animal, and live weight.
This feed can also be used as a maintenance feed in which feed can be restricted from 3kg to 5kg.
A high quality winter lick scientifically formulated to maintain cattle on winter veld. In winter the veld quality (protein levels) decrease .
The veld becomes unpalatable and indigestible due to high levels of lignin/fibre, as a result animals tend to lose weight.
Our Winter Lick is highly nutritive, formulated to maintain animals in such veld condition.
For a mixed head, consumption averages 0.8kg per day per animal.
A competently formulated lick which contains high natural protein, vitamins and minerals.
Because of high natural protein, this lick is most ideal for weaners on winter veld.
Calves have high protein requirement and this lick is designed to meet that need.
A 3 month old calve is expected to consume an average of 0.15kg of our Winter Weaner Lick per day and it has been tried and tested in-house over 19 years that at this rate of consumption calves meet a recommended daily minimum target weight gain of 0.5kg.
Our Summer lick is a mineral lick containing phosphorus, calcium, salt and trace minerals scientifically formulated to provide these minerals to cattle, emphasising more on phosphorus supplementation in summer.
Summer veld tend to be phosphorus deficient and this results in reduced growth and productivity in animals as phosphorus is vital in metabolism.
Research has proved that phosphorus supplementation in breeding stock increases calving percentage and weaning weight by 4.5% and 10% respectively.
For a mixed head, consumption averages 0.5kg per day per animal.
