Image: L to R Darcy, Dale, Lukus and Gary. Ray and Lynette Bald (not shown) made the winning bid on the night.
The Bald Family (from Ettrick in SA) were the lucky winning bidders, on a “ProAgni Animal nutrition formula pack” that included ProTect S pellets and ProGreen powdered lick, at the recent Elders’ Beyond Blue’ fund raising auction.
The family who are croppers, prime lamb and merino wool producers, have worked closely with ProAgni in recent times on their Lamb feedlot operation.The Bald’s use Protect S in their feedlot diet. A mix of Barley and 2.5% Protect S is in their feeders now for their crossbred lambs, to reduce scouring, increase the growth rates, and maintain health on performance pastures containing Cereal, Vetch and Medic.
The ProGreen lick is also fed to the Merino lambs to help reduce the incidence of scours and metabolic disorders and to maintain high levels of growth through the Winter/Spring season.
