FATTENING CONCENTRATE

SHEEP FATTENING/CALF CONCENTRATE

PROTEIN CONCENTRATES FOR THE ECONOMICAL FINISHING OF DAIRY CALVES AND SHEEP

CLASS: PROTEIN CONCENTRATE FOR SHEEP AND CALVES
REG. NO. V14344 ACT 36/1947

SHEEP FATTENING/CALF CONCENTRATE is an adaptation, finishing and ram auction protein concentrate utilised with great success in the feedlot finishing of lambs, as well as the rearing of dairy calves. SHEEP FATTENING CONCENTRATE improves feed conversion rate and growth, diminishes acidosis and prevents bladder stones for the economical finishing of weaners, stud rams and older ewes.

ADVANTAGES OF SHEEP FATTENING/CALF CONCENTRATE

    • Versatile and profitable.
    • Improves feed conversion rate and growth.
    • Ensures top quality carcasses.
    • Ensures shorter period in feedlot.
    • Diminishes acidosis.
    • Prevents bladder stones.
    • Ensures sufficient wool follicle development of lambs for optimal wool production.
    • Keeps wool white.

Feeding tips for the finishing phase for sheep:

    • Change to the finishing diet after 10 days on the starter diet.
    • Grind roughage with 20+ mm sieve to ensure adequate intake and mixing. Lucerne ensures the best results as a source for roughage in sheep finishing rations.
    • Maize can be totally or partially replaced with barley or hominy chop, but the wheat and oats component must be limited to only 20%. Sheep perform at their optimumin the feedlot on maize as the grain component.
    • Too dry or dusty diets usually limit intake. Dustiness is prevented by replacing 40 kg grain with 40 kg (one bag) of MOLASSES MEAL as indicated in the abovementioned rations.
    • This feed contains anionic salts to prevent bladder stones. If the feeding period exceeds two months, an additional 0,5% ammonium chloride can be added to the diet.
    • This feed contains medications to prevent acidosis and to increase feed conversion rate and growth.

Feeding instructions for cafeteria finishing diet:

    • Roughage or pasture must be available ad lib at all times.
    • Diet 1 is in particular effective for young lambs with a body mass under 32 kg, whilst diet 2 is ideal for older lambs and older ewes.

Feeding instructions:

The correct adaptation is crucial.

  • Day 1–2: Limit mixed concentrate to 1% of the body mass (300 g/30 kg lamb/day) plus ad lib hay/roughage or winter pasture.
  • Day 3–4: Limit mixed concentrate to 1,5% of the body mass (450 g/30 kg lamb/day) plus ad lib hay/roughage or winter pasture.
  • Day 5–6: Limit mixed concentrate to 2% of the body mass (600 g/30 kg lamb/day) plus ad lib hay/roughage or winter pasture.
  • Day 7–8: Limit mixed concentrate to 2,5% of the body mass (750 g/30 kg lamb/day) plus ad lib hay/roughage or winter pasture.
  • Day 9–10: Limit mixed concentrate to 3% of the body mass (900 g/30 kg lamb/day) plus ad lib hay/roughage or winter pasture.
  • See complete finishing diet for further feeding tips.
