Small Flock & Breeding Ewes
As with all our sheep blends, we utilise whole grains for supplementing small flocks and breeding ewes. This means the feed can easily be trail fed, trough fed or carefully fed in self-feeders.
For ewes approaching lambing, it can be beneficial to provide them with additional energy and protein in the form of a grain supplement, MF Ewe & Lamb Supplement. Post lambing, this same supplement can help the ewe to provide for her lambs thus helping to increase lamb survival rates.
Lot Feeding Blends
Feed lotting lambs can be an effective way to finish off stock quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. It can enable you to make the most of a pasture poor season also to take advantage of grain and meat prices.
Sheep can be lot fed in self-feeders or using a trough system and can be highly efficient in feed conversion, with some animals achieving a feed conversion efficiency (FCE) of 4:1. This FCE can vary farm to farm, but in most instances sheep are expected to fall between 5-7kg feed for 1 kg gain.
Show Sheep Blend
Premium Show Sheep is a complete feed for preparing animals for show and sales. It contains a balanced blend of proteins and carbohydrates from grains, includes essential minerals and vitamins all of which maximizes rumen efficiency & promotes animal health. The high level of chaff and the inclusion of whole grains encourages good rumination and enables the ad lib feeding in relative safety, maximizing performance without compromising longevity.
Show me a text book farm . . . it simply does not exist. Animals and farms differ significantly, and realising that one size does not fit all, we at Meningie Fodder have a highly qualified Nutritionist. Our Nutritionist is available to discuss all your animal needs and will customise blends taking into account what resources, such as grains, hay, silage and forages are on site for each individual farm.
