Pregnet Ewes

Ewes require a large increase in total feed intake durring pregnency.  Durring the last 6weks of pregnemcy 70% of the lambs groth takes place this requires the Ewe to take in extra feed to forfill this groth.  Extra feed is required at a time that the Ewes stomock is restrickted by the growth of the lamb which reduces the size of the stomock limiting feed intake.

Failing to provid the ewe with this nutrition can have the following concequences thin ewes, twin lamb disease, small weak lambs, poor supply of colostrum, high lamb losses & poor milk yield

To avaoid these potential problems it is important to supply ewes with plenty of good quality forrage durring the last eight weeks of pregnency.

Molasses is an idea feed ingrediant during this period.  Molasses and Molasses Blends have a high level of mattabilisable energy and sugar that is readily digested.  High fibre levels in feed durring this period can reduce nutrtion intake as they take a longtime to digest and can cause good quality solid feed to be passed through the ewe without being digested fully.  The sugar in molasses is digested quickly and also helps to digest other feed leaving the Ewe with the required level of nutrition.   

Spring Grazzing

Spring grass can cause staggers to aviod this a high magnessiun molasses blend can be feed to reduce this problem.  Molasses blends are an extremly efficent way to get magnesium into sheep. 

The Magnesiun is mixed in with the molasses blend so is readily avalible, when the sheep eats the molasses the magnesium is abzorded rappidy.  The sweet taste of molasses makes sure all the sheep will lick at the molasses meaning all will recive  the magnessium they require.

Magnesiun molasses blends are a low cost way to feed magnesium and can give a big cost saving over traditional bucket licks.
