It is a 16% protein ration high in energy, allowing your animals to thrive consistently and maintain daily live-weight gain even if grass supplies are in decline. With the inclusion of our Opt Thrive Calf Mineral Premix that contains extra Vitamin B1 to prevent CCN, Selenium, protected Copper and up to 5% Phosphorus you can be confident that calves should achieve target growth rates.

The weaning creep unlike most others on the market is a partially cooked mix, containing Flaked Barley, Peas and Maize, leading to a crunchy coarse ration even the shyest eaters will take to. LIFFE Mills pedigree ration is tailor made for the high genetic merit animal, it contains a broad spectrum of only high quality ingredients including flaked Barley, hi-pro soda bean, flaked maize, beans and peas.

This formulation combined with a range of specialist additives guarantees optimum growth rates and muscle development. This ration is 17% protein and is designed to encourage frame size and growth early on in the animals' life.

With the carefully selected ingredients used in this mix, it leads to a crunchy coarse ration which is very palatable and allows for consistently high consumption from an early age. It also contains Peasant 1026 aiding higher feed intake with minimal risk of digestive upsets.

The inclusion of our select pedigree mineral, complimented with LIFFE Mills OPTIMIST is essential to assist and sustain superior performance and ultimately health. High concentrate feeding tends to soften feet thus increasing the risk of injury.

A pro-biotic organism used to raise the lumen pH and improve food conversion efficiency. Animals fed high levels of concentrates often suffer from clinical or sub-clinical acidosis.

At this stage concentrate intake will be increased and so a lower level of protein is sufficient. Calves fed Level SC have accelerated and better lumen development leading to positive improvements in growth performance and health, both before and after weaning.

Calf 18 has proved to be a most popular starter ration with our customers and is normally used up to 12 weeks of age, however if you are aiming for optimum health, strong immunity and early weaning the 2-step program is advisable. Again only top quality ingredients are used, and a generous coating of molasses is used to give a highly palatable ration that will encourage milk production during the first three vital weeks of the lambs' life.

This mix also contains Toasted Full Fat Soda, which is rich in both Oil and Protein, helping to keep up milk production early on in the lamb’s life. This ration also includes Vintages, and will ensure that the ewe gets adequate intakes of selenium and vitamin E, vital for lamb vigor and the reproductive cycle.

This is a 17% protein ration containing a superb blend of ingredients to ensure the ewe does not encounter any digestive upsets prior to lambing. It’s packed with generous levels of native barley, oats and beans which gives the ewe optimum energy levels in turn allowing for good lamb growth in the ewe.

The protein level of 17% ensures the ewe’s nutritional needs are met preambling and also counters against disorders such as twin lamb disease and milk fever around lambing time, which in turn allows for good lamb birth weight, udder development and milk let down post lambing. We have added an Innovative Natural growth promoter VIANDS red, sourced in France, extensively trialed by the INRA (French State Agricultural Research Center).

It is based on essential oils and plant extracts that manage the microflora in the animal’s lumen. It reduces lactic acid and sub acute acidosis caused by rations rich in cereals.

It also reduces the degradation of starch in cereals in the rumen, so it passes down into the gut where it is absorbed to better effect. A multitude of trials point to increases in average daily gain of 8-14% and an improvement in food conversion of 5%.

A 14% protein multipurpose premium coarse ration. As it states in the name High Maize includes generous levels of flaked maize as well as native wheat and barley which all attribute to its high energy content.

Its maize content ensures a very coarse and palatable feed that can be fed at high levels if desired, and the best of all is its competitive price. Some Hanoverian weaklings tend to carry a lot of body fat for their age.

A ration balancer is a type of feed designed to supply the protein, minerals, and vitamins needed to support growth and well-being without a lot of extra calories. When fed with adequate good-quality forage, this type of feed is formulated to supply the protein, mineral, vitamin, and caloric needs of the young growing horse, which is why there is a higher feeding rate.

Many factors add to the confusion of providing nutrition throughout these critical stages of life. Some will be shown in halter futurities where maximum growth and condition are required at a young age.

A healthy foal will grow rapidly, gaining in height, weight and strength almost before your eyes. From birth to age two, a young horse can achieve 90 percent or more of its full adult size, sometimes putting on as much as 1.5 kg per day.

Feeding young horses is a balancing act, as the nutritional start a foal gets can have a profound effect on its health and soundness for the rest of its life. As the foal’s dietary requirements shift from milk to feed and forage, your role in providing adequate nutrition is vital.

Nutrition imbalances have been recognized as one potential cause of growth disorders in young growing horses. Therefore, it is important that the diets of young horses be properly balanced with nutrients known to be vital for optimum development.

When you plan a feeding program for your young horses, several important factors need to be considered: Instead, young horses need concentrated sources of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals to meet their nutritive needs.

Foals will meet their nutritional requirements in their first 2-3 months of age from the mare’s milk and pasture. In the third month of lactation the mare’s milk production drops while the foal’s nutritional needs keep increasing.

If you do not want a field type feeder, you can tie the mare in her stable, allowing the foal to eat. Managing growth during this time is very important because excessive weight gain may cause bone abnormalities and long-lasting skeletal problems.

Research has shown that exercise strengthens bone, increases cortical thickness and makes for a sound future athlete. A 400 kg yearling may receive 1.5 to 2 kg of concentrate per day plus free choice hay or pasture.

Therefore, you must combine your knowledge of nutrition, your eye for condition and common sense to make the final adjustments on feed intake. Few topics in equine nutrition stir more controversy than feeding the growing horse.

A healthy foal will grow rapidly, gaining in height, weight and strength almost before your eyes. From birth to age two, a young horse can achieve 90 percent or more of its full adult size, sometimes putting on as many as 3 lbs per day.

Feeding young horses is a balancing act, as the nutritional start a foal gets can have a profound effect on its health and soundness for the rest of its life. As the foal’s dietary requirements shift from milk to feed and forage, your role in providing the proper nutrition gains in importance.

The critical nutrients for growth are energy, protein (amino acids), minerals and vitamins. Nutrition imbalances have been recognized as one potential cause of growth disorders in young horses.

Instead, young horses need concentrated sources of energy, protein, vitamins and minerals to meet their nutritive needs. Foals will meet their nutritional requirements in their first 2 to 3 months with mare’s milk and pasture, plus whatever feed they start nibbling on.

In the third month of lactation, the mare’s milk production drops while the foal’s nutritional needs keep increasing. If you do not want a field type feeder, you can tie the mare in her stall, allowing the foal to eat by her side.

Creep feed at a rate of 1% of the foal’s body weight per day (maximum 1 lb. Managing growth during this time is very important because excessive weight gain may cause bone abnormalities and long-lasting skeletal problems.

Research has shown that exercise strengthens bone, increases cortical thickness and makes for a more durable future athlete. Second, weaklings should be fed concentrates at approximately the following rate: 1 lb per month of age per day (depending on the recommendations listed on the product).

Because their growth rate slows considerably by 12 months, yearlings can consume more pounds of dry matter. Therefore, you must combine your knowledge of nutrition, your eye for condition and your common sense to make the final adjustments on feed intake.
