Phos N Pro
Phos N Pro 7 11 15 20 lick blocks contain phosphorus and urea which are important in fibre digestion, maintaining feed intake and healthy bone structure. Breeders that calve in good body condition will start cycling earlier. This means that breeders need good nutrition management.
Phos N Pro can be fed to replacement heifers which will assist their growth phase to meet the production target of 650g/day for them to cycle at 15 months of age. Phos N Pro blocks are hard, palatable and weather proof.
Why use Phos N Pro?
High phosphorus with protein
Improved fertility in poor country
Increased milk production in lactating stock
Can be fed all year round
Practical levels of urea
Feedlot 802 & Feedlot 802 AgPlus
Feedlot 802 & Feedlot 802 AgPlus
Feedlot 802 is a concentrated premix containing high levels of vitamins, trace minerals and Lasalocid Sodium. It is especially suited to larger feedlots and feed mills which have a local source of urea, limestone, salt and dicalcium phosphate.
Feedlot 802 Esk (S4 licence or Vet Script required) has added Virginiamycin, which can help further to control grain acidosis. Feedlot 802 Ty (S4 licence or vet script required) is also available.
Why use Feedlot 802?
Concentrated – 2kg / tonne
High vitamin levels of A, D & E
Protomol, Protomol + R – Molasses Fortifier
Molasses is often used as a dry season supplement, because it is an excellent source of energy. However, it is very low in protein and phosphorus. Protomol contains both of these essential nutrients, so that when mixed with molasses, it creates an economical and balanced supplement. Protomolalso contains urea, sulphur, salt and a wide range of trace minerals. As Protomol contains cottonseed meal, it is best fed out in troughs, rather than roller or licker drums. Once stock have adapted to the Protomol/molasses mixture, extra urea may be added to boost the effectiveness of the supplement. This will also help to regulate intake. Check with the team at Agricon for details of how much extra urea to add. Protomol + R has the added benefit of Rumensin as an aid to improved growth rate and feed efficiency.
Why use Protomol?
- Balances calcium/phosphorus ratio
- Helps to regulate intake
- Helps to maintain body condition
Bloat Ade (Legume Bloat Control) Legume bloat occurs when cattle or sheep consume highly digestible bloat prone legumes. The soluble leaf proteins produce very stable foam which prevents the valve releasing gas from the rumen. The alcohol ethoxylate in Bloat Ade breaks down the foam allowing the gas to escape. If possible allow stock to access blocks prior to the anticipated season.
Why use Bloat Ade?
Contains 10% alcohol
Palatable molasses based block
Convenient and easy pasture management
Supersulf and Supersulf S16 (High in Sulphur) is one of the only molasses based, high sulphur blocks available on the market. This means that it is both weatherproof and palatable. Supersulf contains 12% sulphur while Supersulf S16 contains 16% sulphur. Supersulf is formulated to be fed out when grazing forage sorghum to improve growth rates and reduce the risk of cyanide poisoning. While forage sorghum is being digested in the rumen, prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide) may be released, which can be fatal to stock. More commonly though, it may be present at low levels which can greatly reduce weight gains.
Forage sorghums are also low in sodium and the combination of supplementing with both salt and sulphur can have a substantial effect on the actual weight gains achieved.
Why use Supersulf?
Reduces risk of prussic acid poisoning
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
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
