Feedlot 40 & Feedlot 40 Plus
Feedlot 40 is a molasses based feedlot concentrate that contains all the essential ingredients to make a balanced feedlot ration. It is easily pumped which reduces manual handling when compared to conventional concentrates. Feedlot 40 also reduces dust, decreases the amount of fines that will separate out of the ration and helps make rations more palatable. It is suitable to use in both silage or grain based rations. Like all of our feedlot concentrates Feedlot 40 contains Lasalocid to improve growth rate and feed conversion.

Optigro 4, 7, 10 blocks are high in cottonseed meal, giving them a good level of natural bypass protein with less dependence on urea. They also has good levels of phosphorus and calcium which means it is the ideal block for young growing stock. Optigro 7 is very useful as protein supplement for breeders. Like all our blocks it is molasses based and packed in an edible cardboard carton. Optigro 7 can be used as a “starter” block, before moving on to a higher urea block such as Drimol 10 or Drimol 15.
Optigro is available in Optigro 4 Sheep, Optigro 7 and Optigro 10.

Newe Tra Lamb
Newe tra lamb is a good source of energy, protein and minerals. It is ideal to feed to starving stock before being fed Optigro 4. By feeding Newe tra Lamb 6-8 weeks before lambing, milk production may improve, resulting in heavier lambs. Heavier lambs have a greater chance of survival. As some ewes will have twins, extra nutrition will help the ewes to gain weight and keep up their milk production.
Why use Newe tra Lamb?
Improved milk production
Can assist ewes to gain weight
Optiphos (High in Phosphorus) Optiphos lick blocks are suitable to be fed to cows running on low phosphorus soils where the added phosphorus will improve fertility. Ewes with lambs at foot will also benefit from Optiphos lick blocks because they contain effective levels of phosphorus and calcium. Phosphorus assists in the reduction of abortions, and mortality of young stock. Lactating animals require phosphorus to maintain milk production
