COARSE

  • Formulated to 20% Cr. Protein, this is a very high spec ewe ration which is specifically designed to maximise milk supply and lamb vigour
  • Designed as a pre & post lambing ration for the very prolific flocks scanning 2 or more lambs per ewe.
  • Also a first choice feed for the pedigree breeder.
  • Should also be used for the less prolific flock where the forage is either less than top quality or naturally low in protein.
  • Lambs at foot should be offered a specific lamb creep feed once they reach 2 to 3 weeks of age.
  • Lamb vigour & ewe milk supply are crucial to a successful lambing season.
  • This ration is ideal for both pregnant & lactating ewes.
  • Formulated to 18% Cr. Protein, it is a highly digestible feedstuff, packed full of every nutrient the ewe needs.
  • This makes it a superb feed for ewes in those critical 6 to 8 weeks before lambing and also for those first 4 to 8 weeks post lambing when milk yield & lamb thrive is so important.
  • Lambs at foot should be offered a specific lamb creep feed as soon as they reach 2 to 3 weeks of age.
  • This is an extremely palatable, very digestible starter ration that can be fed to lambs from a week old.
  • Will maximise early intakes and growth rates in young lambs.
  • Can be fed right through to slaughter at 12 to 15 weeks, but ideally lambs should be switched over to Lamb Crunch Follower once intakes are satisfactory
  • Ideally used as a follower to Cooked Lamb Crunch, but can also be fed as a starter diet for young lambs.
  • Formulated to 18% Cr. Protein, with a higher level of digestible fibre than the Cooked Lamb, this ration will compliment the increasing daily grass & forage intake of rapidly growing lambs.
  • Designed to stimulate high intakes, this ration will really deliver high daily liveweight in gains lambs & excellent carcass confirmation.
  • Can also be fed as a pre-tupping Ram Booster feed.
  • This is a top class, high cereal, high energy, finishing ration for the older lamb.
  • Designed to be fed to all lambs over 12 weeks of age. Should be fed twice daily or better still on an ad-lib basis once daily feeding levels exceed 0.33kgs /day. As with all high feeding regimes, careful management is essential.
  • Formulated to 15% Cr. Protein
  • As in all our lamb diets we have specifically formulated the mineral balance in this ration to greatly reduce the risk of Urinary Calculi and Copper toxicity in intensively fed sheep.

CUBED

  • Designed for the most prolific flocks where good lamb size and vigour at birth needs to be absolutely guaranteed irrespective of litter size.
  • Hi Pro Soya and ground maize make up the foundation of this diet to support the ewe in delivering excellent milk yields.
  • This very high energy nut can also be used to increase the ration energy density where the forage is less than top quality.
  • Lambs at foot should be offered a specific lamb creep feed once they reach 2-3 weeks of age.
  • Our most popular diet for ewes pre and post lambing
  • Top class energy dense nut for in-lamb ewes where pregnancy is limiting dry matter intakes shortly before lambing and for lactating ewes with high quality proteins to boost both quality and yield of colostrum and milk for suckling lambs.
  • Formulated to 18% Cr. Protein, it is a highly digestible feedstuff, packed full of every nutrient the ewe needs.
  • Contains rumen degradable proteins and rumen by-pass proteins to optimise lamb birth weights.
  • Formulated to 18% protein to support pregnant and lactating ewes and to compliment good quality forage for the critical pre and post lambing periods.
  • Suckling lambs can also be allowed access but once intakes become significant, they should be offered a specific lamb diet.
  • Will deliver good milk yields and lamb vigour when fed at appropriate levels
  • Excellent quality nut delivering a highly nutritious and palatable starter feed for lambs.
  • Ingredients are selected to ensure they are easily digestible, with a focus on maximising energy intakes and lamb development while preventing any digestive upsets.
  • Due to being very high in energy it can be used right through to slaughter when needed to compensate for difficult weather or grazing conditions.
  • Pedigree sheep breeders are extremely happy with the results they are achieving from their flock by using Nugget Elite Lamb Nuts.
  • This is a high energy creep feed for lambs.
  • Formulated to 17% protein with high levels of top quality cereals to maximise both growth rates and kill outs.
  • Suitable for all ages, so it can be fed as a starter or as a follow on to our Elite lamb nut or any of our Lamb Starter crunches

SHEEP MINERALS

20kg Mollassed Mineral & Vitamin Block

  • A top class mineral bucket for all lamb, hoggets, ewes and rams.
  • Contains high levels of all essential minerals & vitamins

Reasons to use Nugget 4 Way Sheep Block
