ProAgni® ProTect S

Optimises sheep performance on grain

All products are free from antibiotics including ionophores*

ProAgni® ProTect S pellet is designed to be fed with cereal grain supplements for use in feedlots and drought lots, supplementary feeding or weaning.  Adding ProTect S to an animal’s diet has the potential to increase growth rates and decrease the time it takes to reach market specifications.

Why use ProTect S?

  • Provides buffering against lactic acidosis
  • Helps livestock reach genetic potential for
    increased production
  • Meets increasing demand for antibiotic free meat

ProTect S contains:

  • Acid Buf, a highly effective rumen buffer, containing a pure source of bio-available minerals for rumen efficiency
  • Optiwise® a patent pending additive of organic and inorganic bio-available minerals, trace elements, vitamins, probiotic extracts, bioactives and antioxidative compounds, for maximising animal health and minimizing energy waste

How do I use ProTect S?

Mix the pellet into the grain ensuring even distribution throughout the ration. For best results use a mixer feed wagon. Alternatively, add the prescribed concentration while auguring grain, taking care to achieve accurate grain flow rates.

  • Free from urea and hormones
  • Free from Lasalocid and Monensin
  • Nil withholding period, nil export slaughter intervals
  • Feed only to sheep
  • Do not feed wet, mouldy products to any animal

Introducing ProTect S to your animal’s diet

Include ProTect S prior to the commencement of any feeding program. Sudden introduction may evoke some sorting behaviour, generally this is overcome with time.

SHEEP INDUCTION AND WEANING PLANS
Before introducing grain to your livestock, we recommend that you speak to your animal nutritionist and create an induction plan for performance. Click here to download your sheep induction plan and weaning induction plan.

*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

Emerging from the drought with a better business

1 July 2019

Wellington, NSW, sheep producers Scott and Anna Brien admit while getting through the current drought has been tough, it’s also been a blessing in disguise.

With a Merino stud, “Bella Lana”, and commercial sheep flock, the Brien’s had used supplementary feeding to finish lambs, prepare ewes for joining or lambing or to maintain condition on stud rams on an ad hoc basis over the years. However in 2018 Scott and Anna decided they needed to be more rigorous in their approach to grain feeding. Read more
