Feeding tips for the finishing diets after 10 days on the starter diet:

  • Grind roughage to approximately 20 mm in length to ensure adequate mixing and intake.
  • Lucerne, as a source of roughage, ensures the best results in sheep finishing rations.
  • Although sheep perform at their optimum on maize as the grain component in the feedlot, it can be totally or partially replaced with barley. The wheat and oats should be limited to 20% replacement.
  • Diets that are too dry or dusty usually limit intake and affect performance. Dustiness can be prevented by replacing 40 kg grain with 40 kg (one bag) of Molatek Molasses Meal as indicated in the above-mentioned rations.
