A complete feed for sheep

All products are free from antibiotics including ionophores*

ProAgni ProTect ™ Sheep Finisher is a full cereal grain and protein pellet. Designed to provide the full dietary requirements for use in feedlots, drought lots, supplementary feeding or weaning.

Why use ProTect Sheep Finisher?

  • Provides balanced protein and energy nutrition for
    sheep
  • Provides buffering against lactic acidosis
  • Helps livestock reach genetic potential for
    increased production
  • Meets increasing demand for antibiotic free meat

How do I use ProTect Sheep Finisher:

This complete feed pellet is designed for feeding at 1-2%
of bodyweight per day, fed out in troughs or self feeders,
in conjunction with fibre forage. Allow at least 20% of
the total intake of the animal to consist of a quality fibre
source such as cereal hay or straw.

Do not feed this pellet at 100% of diet. Fibre is required.
Induct animals carefully onto feed. Increase intake of
pellets to desired level for 7-10 days to minimise risk of
digestive upset.

Give special attention to controlling the introduction to
excessively hungry or drought-affected animals. Ensure
that access to cool, clean fresh water is always available.

  • Cereal grain, digestible fibre, oilseed protein & oil.
  • ProAgni® ProTect S a highly effective nutritional
    supplement which provides buffering against lactic
    acidosis, and optimised rumen fermentation for animal performance, and contains;

*Ionophore antibiotics are compounds produced by microorganisms (mainly spore-forming bacteria); they act by specifically increasing the ion permeability of the cell membrane. Source https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-46403-4_5
