Lamb Weaner

SlingShot Lamb Weaner is designed to provide young lambs (10 to 20kg) with the high protein and energy levels required for fast growth rates

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS​

Contains:

  • a high level of protein balanced with an  efficient source of energy, in the form of starch, to promote optimal lean muscle development;
  • a combination of buffers, including Acid Buf,  to minimise the risk of grain poisoning (acidosis);
  • a complete blend of vitamins & minerals,  including A,D &E to support good health and immunity in a fast growing lamb;
  • anionic salts to minimise the risk of water belly (urinary calculi);
  • Bovatec for improved feed conversion (included on request).

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

  •  It is very important to introduce pellet  feeding gradually over a 14 day period.  Ideally, pellets should be introduced while the lambs are still suckling so transition to pellets  at weaning is quicker and safer, reducing the  possibility of set backs. Begin at a rate of 100g/ head/day for week one and then increase by 50g/ head/day up to 700g/head per day, then ad lib;
  • Supplementary feeding rate will depend on  your specific growth targets and the availability of pasture/hay. Please consult with your local Rivalea Territory Manager for an accurate  feeding recommendation;
  • Always provide access to a palatable  roughage and clean water;
  • Identify shy feeders as soon as possible and  manage separately.
