Benefit “Prescription Mixes”

Custom mixes / blends to suit your stock’s needs!

In a quest to increase production, excellent genetics are often purchased to produce superior stock. Often the potential is never realised on many farms because of lack of soil and plant nutrition.

Genetic potential may never be reached in your livestock because of hidden hunger. This is an unseen craving in the animals for the correct minerals they require. Sheep in particularly, can eat many times their requirements to try and alleviate a need for the missing element or elements they are lacking.

Hidden hunger can result in subclinical symptoms running through much of a mob with only a few animals showing physical deficiencies, whilst valuable production is lost in the rest.

Our aim is to help you correct the livestock nutritional deficiencies and capitalise on the genetic potential that you have invested in. This in turn often produces a significant increase in income to enable you to start rebuilding your soils again.  We find the quickest and easiest way to regain production for our clients is to supply livestock with the minerals they are requiring through a stock lick.

We have various blends of minerals for specific area’s which are sold in 1-ton lots (40 x 25kg bags) per pallet.  The average usage rate is approximately 1.5 tons per thousand sheep per year. You can easily supply an excellent mineral mix which will give you many times its cost in profitable production gains.
