Rumenco has introduced a cost-effective high energy/low intake combination feed and
mineral supplement for ewes pre-lambing and pre-tupping.
SUPAlyx Super Energy Plus has been boosted with fish oil and includes
natural protein only.
The new SUPAlyx Super
Energy Plus product has been boosted with beneficial fish oil and formulated to 15%
protein, including natural protein only.
"The inclusion of fish oil in pre-lambing supplements has been shown to increase the
concentration of omega 3 fatty acids in lamb brains. And as the brain controls
growth and metabolism there is a beneficial effect on early life lamb vigour," says
Rumenco technical manager David Thornton.
Rumenco says the new supplement will add value to supplementary forages pre-lambing
and correct mineral deficiencies. "The nutritional lick is fully formulated, so
there is no need to feed salt licks or additional mineral or vitamin supplements."
The company expects ewe intakes to average around 70g/head/day at an average cost of4.5p/day. SUPAlyx Super Energy Plus is available in a 22.5kg bucket or as 100kg
mechanical handling-only product.
