Blueprint® Lamb Starter

Blueprint® Lamb Starter is a complete, palatable mini pellet designed to improve lamb intake, growth performance and feed efficiency in pre-weaning lambs. 

About the Product

Blueprint® Lamb Starter is manufactured so every mouthful of feed is just like the previous. This product is formulated for increased early-life, dry feed intake to promote lamb health, improved rumen development which accelerates growth performance and feed efficiency as lambs enter the growing phase of production. 

As part of the Blueprint program, the Alltech technologies in this product promote digestive, immune and urinary system health. These products include Bioplex®, a source of organic trace minerals (cobalt, manganese and zinc), and Sel-Plex®, a selenium yeast. Blueprint organic trace minerals resemble those found naturally in plant proteins. This translates to increased availability with less interference by antagonists and less oxidative stress, which, in turn, improves performance.

Blueprint Lamb Starter also contains Bio-Mos® 2, a cutting-edge technology for gut health that enhances bacterial diversity and is helpful when animals are experiencing stress or going through transition periods.  

Whether being kept as a breeding replacement or sent to a feedlot, Blueprint Lamb Starter promotes intake early in the lamb’s life, resulting in successful rumen development for a lifetime of good health and cost-effective production.
