Olssons Calcium Molasses Block 20kg


When to Use Calcium Molasses:
When designing supplements for ruminants, the primary objective is feeding the microorganisms in the rumen.

The bacteria in the rumen require an array of minerals and elements to process feed.

Nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur are some of the major elements required for the synthesis of amino acids and protein.

There is a concentration of these elements at which rumen microbes function optimally, so each of these elements must be in balance.

The effect of balancing these essential elements is an efficient breakdown of dry and fibrous feeds, such as dry pastures and stubble.

When this ratio is correct, the protein derived from the bacteria in the rumen results in more digestion of the food eaten by the animal and more protein for the animal to digest.

Feeding Instructions:
Remove outer carton and plastic cover and place near water troughs, dams and stock camps. Place out sufficient blocks to avoid overcrowding of stock. Initially, the consumption rate will be higher than average, but higher rates of consumption will drop after an initial "gorging" period. Replace immediately when consumed.

The following rates will increase or decrease according to varying pasture conditions.
Cattle 100 - 150 g/head/day
Sheep 20 - 50 g/head/day
