- Controlled intake, premium energy and protein lick to support flock performance in a highly palatable form.
- Extra high energy (16MJ ME/kg DM) lick to help support optimal ewe body condition scores, and target lamb growth rates.
- High protein (14%), including urea, helps support forage utilisation, colostrum production and weaned lamb frame growth.
- Contains an excellent level of vitamin E at 1000iu/kg and 12mg/kg selenium to support good stock health at key stages of the production cycle, and lamb vigour at lambing time.
- Includes vitamin B1 for where there is a risk of cerebrocortical necrosis (CCN), and vitamin B12 to support energy metabolism in multiple-bearing ewes and growing lambs.
- Breeding ewes from 2 weeks pre-tupping for 8 weeks
- Ewes and hoggs from mid to late pregnancy
- Growing and finishing lambs after weaning
- All cattle over 3 months of age
