Prolick - Summerphos P9

Classification: Mineral – Trace mineral supplement for ruminants
Format: Meal

Registration No.: V18596

OBJECTIVE
The objective is to increase cow/ewe weight, reproductive performance and calf/lamb performance by supplementing 12g of phosphorus / cow / day and 1.5g of phosphorus / sheep / day. The result will be a better condition score on animals entering the dry season which will result in
1) Lower cost of overwintering;
2) higher rate of re-conception in the following season; and
3) better weaning weights.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATIONS
Feed ad lib. as soon as sustainable green summerveld is available and animals are in a positive weight balance. Do not feed if persistent rain falls – rather allow animals to increase daily intakes on sunshine days and aim for the following average expected intakes over time:

Prolick - Elite Sheep 33 Concentrate

Classification: Protein – Energy – Trace mineral concentrate supplement for sheep
Format: Meal

Registration No.: V15251

OBJECTIVE

Elite Sheep 33 Concentrate is a lick concentrate for the home mixing of licks for sheep. Elite Sheep 33 Concentrate has been developed to provide the best possible protein balance in licks for sheep. It contains relatively low levels of urea and high levels of natural proteins. It is high in by-pass protein and especially rich in the essential amino acids methionine and lysine. Due to its unique protein balance, Elite Sheep 33 Concentrate will achieve excellent results when used as a concentrate for licks for dry and growing sheep and will achieve best results when used in licks for ewes in late gestation and for lactating ewes.

Prolick - Buffer Lick

Classification: Protein – Mineral – Trace mineral supplement for ruminants
Format: Meal / Pellets

Registration No.: V18593

OBJECTIVE
Buffer Lick is used to increase body condition score of cows and ewes on crop residues.

FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS
Buffer Lick must be fed ad lib. out of the bag and should not be diluted or tampered with for the following reasons:

1. Dilution will adversely affect the concentration of medicaments that will affect the efficacy
the product as a buffer;
2. Adding any product (such as salt) which affects the palatability will decrease the voluntary
intake of this product and thus also cause dilution of medicaments and nutrients.

Animals designated to grazing crop residue must be fed Buffer Lick ad lib. for 14 days prior to being placed on crop residue. It is advisable to adapt the animals gradually to a high energy ration as in a feedlot situation.

ADAPTATION GUIDELINE

DAY Kg Maize/bovine/day g Maize/sheep/day
1 – 4 2 200
5 – 7 4 400
8 – 11 6 600
12 – 14 8 800

Release animals to graze crop residue with ad lib. Buffer Lick.

During the adaptation period it is important that animals have access to good quality roughage ad libitum and clean water.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING

Give special attention to sufficient trough space, access to troughs, distance between troughs, water source and grazing area, as these factors will affect the voluntary intake of Buffer Lick. Due to the natural dominance of some animals over others, it may happen that not all animals obtain a sufficient amount of medicaments to prevent acidosis effectively. Be alert and observant during the initial period when animals are placed on crop residue for signs of acidosis and quick treatment thereof.

Prolick - Production Lick

Classification: Protein – Energy – Trace mineral supplement for ruminants
Format: Meal / Pellets

Registration No.: V21260

OBJECTIVE
Production Lick is the ideal product for the rearing of the breeding herd (Heifers) during the dry season. The product contains good quality protein, energy, and trace minerals to achieve optimal growth under limiting grazing circumstances. Production Lick will stimulate the rumen to optimize the utilization of low quality grazing and roughage. The ionophore in Production Lick further ensures that the animals will gain condition, and/or weight under these sub-optimal conditions.

This product is also ideal to be supplemented to cows, during the latter stages of the dry season, when the quality of the grazing is at its weakest, and the feeding requirements of the animals are very high. Supplementing cows with will have a positive effect on the condition of cows, which will be reflected in a better conception rate, milk production and weaning weights.

Production Lick is also very well suited to increase body condition before the mating season as a steam-up ration. Any animal that has lost body condition due to stress, disease, transport etc., will benefit greatly from this product.

Prolick - Energy Block

Classification: Protein – Energy – Trace mineral supplement for ruminants
Format: Block

Registration No.: V18129

OBJECTIVE
Energy Block is a source of Energy, Minerals and Trace Mineral supplementation to all classes of livestock. Although not classified as a Protein source, Energy Block supplies sufficient protein to stimulate rumen microbes and increase the voluntary dry matter intake and digestibility of consumed roughages. Energy Block can be supplemented to dairy, cattle and sheep on grazing and/or pastures or complete feeds where sufficient protein is supplied by the dry matter, but where energy, minerals and trace minerals is deficient. Energy Block is an ideal supplement before mating, calving/lambing and where animals need to improve in body condition score.

FURTHER FEEDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR FEEDLOTS
It is of critical importance to follow the proper adaptation period when starting on any feedlot ration. It takes a minimum of seven days for the rumen bacteria to change from a high fibre to a high energy ration. This adaptation process must not be rushed. The following prescribed adaptation period can be followed as a minimum:

DAY Kg Conc./bovine/day Kg Conc./sheep/day
1 – 4 2 200
5 – 6 4 400
7 – 8 6 600
9 – 10 8 800
11 – 14 ad lib. ad lib.

During the adaptation period it is important that the animals have access to good quality roughage ad libitum and clean water. Proper feed bunk management plays a huge role in feedlot performance – consult your Meadow Technical Advisor for advice.
