With the successful explosion of the Australian lamb market, producers now must ensure that their lambing percentages are maximised. It all comes down to the quality of nutrition for the lambing ewe. Salt Feed Blocks | Pre-Lamb's new technology depends on feeding high quality bypass protein meal and macro minerals to ewes prior to lambing.
By feeding ewes 6-8 weeks prior to lambing, colostrum levels are improved in lambing ewes, which in turn, leads to improved lambing weights and results in higher survival rates. Healthy and heavier lambs means more money in the bank, and that is where Salt Feed Blocks | Pre-Lamb becomes an important management tool for lamb producers. By supplementing pasture with high quality nutrients in Salt Feed Blocks | Pre-Lamb, ewes have a convenient and quality nutrition source available 24 hours a day when they need it, which improves digestion of forage as well as helping to supply valuable minerals and protein.
Considering that many ewes are able to product twin lambs, extra supplementation using Salt Feed Blocks | Pre-Lamb is a wise economic choice in ensuring that ewes can express their full genetic potential in successfully mothering twins to weaning.
