Premium Sheep minerals The development of the rumen, a good growth and feed rate and muscle development are very important in growing ruminants.The right vitamins and minerals are needed to support this. This formulation helps with proper fertility, supports the growing fetus and ensures excellent quality colostrum.
From our experience and forage testing (Grass & Silage) results from all over Ireland the provision of minerals and vitamins is largely insufficient to meet the needs of sheep. Feeding both lambs, rams and ewes with a supplement is therefore more than necessary. The constant pressure on the immune system, the large daily growth and the enormous mass of muscles provide a great need for minerals and vitamins.
Vitamins and minerals act as enzymes, coenzymes and antioxidants and are an important part of all physiological and pathophysiological processes that occur in the animal. Below are some important benefits of a good vitamin and mineral status:
