FEATURES & BENEFITS

No Added Copper

Co-op 28% Sheep Supplement Block contains no added copper. Sheep are less tolerant of excess copper than most livestock species. An excess of dietary copper can potentially cause death in sheep. Co-op helps to reduce that possibility by not adding copper to sheep diets.

Supplemental Protein

Protein is necessary to facilitate muscle growth, tissue development, immune function, weight gain, milk production and reproductive processes. Feeding sheep only forages that are deficient in protein will result in poor performance and undesirable production results. 28% Sheep Supplement Block provides the protein supplementation necessary when forages are protein deficient, allowing for efficient growth of lambs as well as body maintenance and milk production in older animals.

Non-Protein Nitrogen

The 28% crude protein includes not more than 5.00% equivalent crude protein from non-protein nitrogen. This level of non-protein nitrogen supplies the microflora in the rumen of sheep with the basic nitrogen component of protein, from which the microflora very effectively assimilate into protein that is subsequently utilized by the animal. Appropriately utilizing the microflora to assimilate protein for sheep is an efficient and effective way to provide adequate dietary protein supplementation. 28% Sheep Supplement Blocks are intended for ruminating sheep. Non-ruminating sheep will likely not be able to assimilate the non-protein nitrogen.

Added Minerals

Minerals are primary components of proper structural development and maintenance. Macro and trace minerals are included in the proper relationship to each other.

Added Vitamins

Vitamins A, D and E are essential to proper growth and development. ProTrition 28% Sheep Supplement Blocks are fully fortified with all the essential vitamins at appropriate levels to ensure proper growth and development.

FEEDING DIRECTIONS


 Provide one block per 20 head of animals with adequate pasture or hay. When block is about half consumed add another block. Feed to attain 2 to 3.5 oz of block consumption per head per day. If consumption exceeds 3.5 oz per head per day, provide additional forage or supplemental grain for energy. In some feeding situations consumption may be reduced by moving the blocks farther from the water supply or increased by moving the blocks closer to the water supply. Always provide plenty of clean, fresh water.
