Feeding Recommendations :
As all feeding systems and requirements are different, it is recommended you seek the advice of a nutritionist to best develop a suitable feeding program for your requirements and feeding rations. Sheep nuts are designed to supplement the diet of sheep at a feeding rate of 0.5 – 1.0kg per day. They must be fed in conjunction with fibre forages such as cereal hay or straw. Controlled and gradual introduction is important. As an introduction, feed small controlled amounts (about 0.2% of body weight per animal per day), and slowly increase the amount over 10 days to 1.0kg/head/day. Give special attention to controlling the introduction of nuts to excessively hungry or drought affected stock. Ensure that clean fresh water is available.
Store in a cool dry place away from vermin.
