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.
Why use Optigro?
High level of cottonseed meal can help to maintain growth rate
Includes phosphorus & calcium for skeletal growth
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.
Why use Feedlot 40?
Mixes well in all feeds
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
Drimol 10%, 15% and 20%
Available in 20kg, 40kg, & 100kg
The Drimol range of molasses blocks is designed to optimize utilization of dry or poor quality feed.
They all contain cottonseed meal, Vitamin A and trace minerals. The 3 different levels of urea available gives you the flexibility to choose the block that best suits your needs. Drimol 10 with 10% urea is our most popular block and has consistently given good results for many years. Drimol 15 and Drimol 20 are also very useful blocks for producers who are comfortable with higher levels of urea.
Why use Drimol?
Contains cottonseed meal for bypass protein
Improved utilisation of poor quality feed
Molasses based for palatability and energy
Maintain condition of livestock
Phosmix – High in Phosphorus
Phosmix is a palatable, high phosphorus mineral supplement. Its proven performance has made it one of our best selling supplements. Phosmix is designed to be used when the available feed contains sufficient protein and energy to meet the animal’s needs, but is lacking in phosphorus. Even in better types of country, lactating breeders and young growing stock who both have higher requirements for phosphorus, may not get enough phosphorus to meet their needs. Because Phosmix does not contain any urea, it is suitable to use in mixed grazing situations, such as cattle and horses in the same paddock. When horses are grazing improved pastures, for example Buffel or Kikuyu, Phosmix may be fed to help prevent Bighead.
Why use Phosmix?
Good skeletal growth
Improved milk production and fertility
Improved calving percentage
Helps reduce the incidence of Bighead in horses
Fortamin(Trace Minerals) This block was carefully formulated to contain high levels of both macro and trace minerals. Fortamin is suitable for cattle, horses, sheep and goats, where it is likely that the pasture will be short in minerals. Fortamin blocks may be offered where horses and cattle are running in the same paddock.
Why use Fortamin?
Vital minerals for all
High in copper, cobalt, selenium and zinc
Useful level of phosphorus
Prosup 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 – High Protein & High Phosphorus
Prosup is a range of high protein dry licks for ruminants, based on cottonseed meal. These products also contain useful levels of phosphorus and optimum levels of the essential trace minerals. The Prosup range starts at 0% urea going through to the top of the range at 30% urea. This means stock can get accustomed to supplementary feeding at a lower urea level, before working through the range as the quality of the available paddock feed deteriorates. Prosup also contains Zeolite, which is thought to improve urea utilisation in the rumen. This range is formulated to be self-limiting on intake, enabling it to be fed free choice.
Why use Prosup?
Improved digestibility ofdry feed
Assists in weight gain
Improved calving and lambing percentages
Pasture 17 + B
In this product we have added Bovatec®, which can increase the growth rates of young stock (cattle or sheep). It will also assist cows and ewes to utilise the available feed more efficiently.
Why use Pasture 17?
Provides protein and energy
Supplied ready to feed
