CopRice Lamb Finisher Pellets provide a balanced and highly digestible source of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals to maintain optimal health and performance during finishing. CopRice Lamb Finisher Pellets also contains the following buffers and registered feed medications:

  • Acid Buf™, sodium bicarbonate and bentonite to reduce the risk of acidosis and digestive disorders
  • Urine acidifying agent (Ammonium Chloride/Ammonium Sulphate) is added to help reduce the risk of urinary calculi
  • Bovatec® (lasalocid sodium) to reduce the incidence of coccidiosis

 

Feeding guidelines

  • CopRice Lamb Finisher Pellets can be fed at any time after weaning but ideally lambs should have a liveweight of at least 30 kg.

  • Introduce pellets over 14–21 days to allow the rumen to adapt and to reduce the incidence of digestive problems.

  • Feed in conjunction with quality roughage (i.e. hay or straw).

  • Ensure sheep have access to cool, clean drinking water and clean water troughs regularly.

  • Monitor sheep and remove any ‘shy feeders’ from the feedlot.

  • Monitor lambs regularly, particularly for symptoms of acidosis (e.g. diarrhoea, bloating) or water belly. Remove affected lambs and treat immediately in consultation with your local veterinarian, animal health specialist or feed supplier.
