- Economical source of protein that is ideal for mature cattle on low quality forages
- Combination of natural protein and NPN (non-protein nitrogen) for optimum protein utilization
- Small, 33.3-lb blocks are easy to handle and easy to move, making them ideal for rotational grazing
- Weather-resistant blocks don't require expensive bunks or feeders
- No drums, tubs or boxes to return or dispose of, saving you time and labor
- Easy to mix and match with existing SWEETLIX® mineral supplements to obtain the perfect levels for your herd
CAUTION: Use as directed. Consumption of selenium should not exceed 3 mg per head daily.
WARNING: This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or any species with a low tolerance to supplemental copper.
Introductory Period: Following a 7 to 10 day acclimation period, average consumption should be 1 to 2 pounds for mature cattle with unrestricted forage supplies. Position the blocks 50 to 75 feet from loafing, feeding and watering areas. Some repositioning of blocks may be necessary as animals become acclimated to the presence of the blocks. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. If over consumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate the overall feeding program. DO NOT ALLOW STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS BLOCK.
Feed at a rate of one block per 5 to 15 head. All animals should have equal access to blocks. Timid and smaller animals need their share.
Place blocks where animals congregate. Locate blocks throughout the pasture at loafing, grazing and watering areas. Adequate distance must be maintained between blocks to prevent crowding - 10 feet minimum.
Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources of forage and clean, fresh water. Animals should not run out of blocks. When a block is two-thirds consumed, provide a new block near it.
Cattle should consume an average of 1 to 2 pounds per head per day for a 1,000-pound animal.
Consumption of this block may vary depending upon animal body condition, quality and quantity of forages, seasonal weather conditions, and most importantly, feeding locations of blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas.
If additional vitamin and mineral fortification is desired, provide an appropriate SWEETLIX® self-fed mineral supplement in addition to this supplement.
