Feeding Protocols

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

  • Feed must be introduced slowly over a minimum 10-14 days period.

  • Start at 150g/hd and slowly build up over the induction period. If stock are fussy it may take a little longer (up to 14 days) for the stock to consume the full ration. 

  • Ad-lib hay/straw must be available to the stock at all times. This should be minimum 10% 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 kept some distance apart. This provides the stock an opportunity to exercise the rumen and prevents them from gorging at the feeder for extended period 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.

  • Please check with your Nutritionist regarding the suitability of the Pellets and feeding protocols to ensure it is appropriate.
