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
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
Horses grazing pasture that is made up of exotic grasses like Buffel and Kikuyu are at risk of developing Bighead (see page 2). Optiphos lick blocks contain 12% Calcium and are useful in the prevention of Bighead. The Optiphos lick blocks are hard, yet palatable and provide a convenient method of supplementing your livestock’s’ diet with trace minerals and a significant amount of phosphorus.
Why use Optiphos?
Helps prevent Bighead in horses
Improved milk production and fertility
Improved calving percentage
Wetphos 5 and 15 lick blocks contain high levels of phosphorus, which may greatly improve calving rates, and a reduced rate of abortions and lower calf mortality.
The Wetphos formulation has been designed to be a hard, weatherproof but palatable supplement for cattle.
The advantage of Wetphos is that it contains low levels of salt, which enables this product to withstand moist conditions. The energy from molasses and cottonseed meal along with urea for added protein and generous levels of trace minerals, make Wetphos a superior supplement which can be fed out prior to the wet season.
Why use Wetphos?
Very high levels of phosphorus
Extra waterproof formulation
Maximised wet season growth rate
Difficult to overconsume
Improved calving and growth rate
Can prevent botulism and improve mortality rates
Calcifort and Calcifort+10 provides a good level of calcium, as well as cottonseed meal and molasses and is a very useful block to be fed when grazing stubble or dry feed. The cottonseed meal can help make up for the low protein of the stubble, while the molasses will provide a source of energy.
Calcifort is available with and without urea. It is useful when a calcium supplement is required, eg. when feeding grain in the paddock.
Why use Calcifort?
High in calcium
Molasses based for energy and palatability
High vitamin A level for better fertility
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
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
