Feeding Protocols 

To gain the maximum benefit from our products it is important that the following Feeding Protocols are adopted:

  • Consult your nutritionist about giving a 7in1 & Vitamin A, B12, D & E needle when stock enter the feedlot

  • Feed must be introduced slowly over a minimum 14-21 days period.

  • Start at 200gm/hd for 200kg Calf and 1.0kg/hd for 400kg cow and slowly build up over the induction period. If stock are fussy it may take a little longer (up to 21 days) for the stock to consume the full ration. For weaned calves 3.5% - 4.2% Lwt & mature cows 1.5%-2% Lwt.

  • Ad-lib hay/straw must be available to the stock at all times. This should be minimum 20% of total intake. This improves rumen function and is important.

  • Availability of clean water is very important and if bore water is being used, you are strongly advised to do regular testing to ensure suitability for stock consumption.

  • Pellets and fresh, clean water must be separated. This provides the stock an opportunity to exercise the rumen and prevents them from gorging at the feeder for extended periods of time.

  • Attention must be given to smaller/weaker livestock with poor vigour. If possible separate into another mob for conditional feeding.

  • The addition of buffers/minerals via a dry lick should be made available ad-lib, in particular Calcium/Lime

  • Any deaths out of the ordinary must be reported to Oilseeds Australia Representatives immediately.
