Sheep Nuts are formulated to be fed to sheep to maintain body weight and condition in situations where forage quality and/or quantity is limiting.
The feeding rate of Sheep Nuts will vary depending on a number of factors such as body weight and condition, pregnancy, lactation (level of milk production), activity and quality of the roughage being fed.
Generally Sheep Nuts would be fed between 0.5% to 2% of body weight per day along with ad lib. roughage.
Introduce Sheep Nuts gradually and avoid sudden changes to diet as digestive problems may occur. If digestive problems occur reduce the amount of nuts being fed and increase roughage consumption until normal digestive activity returns.
Sheep Nuts can be fed to cattle.
Roughage and clean, fresh water must be available at all times.
