Maxiwol ReadyMix

Class: Protein and Trace Mineral Supplement for Sheep
VOERMOL MAXIWOL READYMIX is a high quality, ready-mixed lick
in meal form for sheep and goats grazing dry pastures:
– is easy to handle and convenient to use. It is ideal for situations where problems are experienced with mixing licks due to insufficient labour and/or lick troughs, also where grain is unavailable or too expensive to use;
– limits wastage and loss due to wind since it is molasses based;
– is molasses based which improves palatability and ensures better intake;
– contains adequate intake inhibitors to regulate intake;
– is a lick and not a complete feed, therefore sufficient pasture or roughage should always be available;
– provides a high level of natural protein (bypass protein), energy and minerals which improves production and reproduction;
– is, as a result of its high bypass protein content, highly suitable as a production lick for late pregnant and lactating sheep, Angora and Boer goat ewes, fl ush feeding of ewes; for the growing out of weaner lambs and replacement ewes and
– is highly suitable as a production lick for wethers, dry ewes and ewes in their fi rst three months of pregnancy on very low quality dry pasture;
– ensures a high intake of bypass protein, which has the following advantages:
• reduces lamb mortality in small stock, since it stimulates udder development and subsequently increases colostrum and milk production, improves mothering ability and lamb vigour at birth, as well as limiting birth problems, pregnancy disease and milk fever;
• reduces lamb mortality as it prevents the occurrence of abnormally thick and viscous colostrum. This “condensed milk” type colostrum is related to high lamb mortality as it bears relation to low colostrum and milk production, as well as delayed onset of lactation;
• increases lamb growth and reduces the appearance of tail end and orphaned lambs since it stimulates milk production;
• improves growth of young animals as a result of improved muscle growth. Leads to increased weaning mass and improved growing out of young animals (e.g. replacement ewes), which enhances lifetime reproduction potential;
• improves wool growth of woolled sheep and fibre growth of Angora goats as well as wool and fibre quality. Simultaneously it improves the staple strength of wool fi bres which leads to a price premium;
