About the Product

 

All plant-based protein supplement block that is ideal for all classes of sheep on medium to low quality forages. Added Actigen® aids in nutrient utilization to help your sheep make the most of available hay. No other mineral or vitamin supplement is needed with this block. It is designed to deliver the same high quality trace mineral and vitamin package as the Easylix Lamb Maker Mineral Pressed Block. This allows consistent nutrition from one product to the other.

Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 2 to 4 ounces for sheep with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, feeding and watering areas. Some repositioning of blocks may be necessary as animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If overconsumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program.

 

DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.

Feeding Directions

Feeding and Management

  1. Feed at a rate of one block per 5 to 10 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
  2. Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to prevent crowding - 10 feet minimum.
  3. Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources of forage and clean, fresh water. Animals should not run out of blocks. When a block is twothirds consumed, provide a new block near it. Place very small pieces in a feed pan or trough to be cleaned up.
  4. Sheep should consume an average of 2 to 4 ounces per head daily.
  5. Consumption of this block may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of forages, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, feeding locations of blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.
  6. Feed as the only SELF-FED source of salt or other minerals and vitamins.
Caution

USE AS DIRECTED. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 0.7 mg per head daily.
