Feeding Instructions

Instructions for use:
Introduce a new feed gradually over 7 to 10 days to help a smooth change over. This feed should be fed with ad lib fresh water and forage.

Feeding Cattle:
Calves – Start by introducing small quantities (115g) of Cattle & Calf Mix and gradually build to about 1.3kg at 8 weeks old. Quantities of mix can be steadily increased to 2.3kg at 6 months.
Young Cattle – Youngstock may need up to 2.5kg of Cattle & Calf Mix per day to keep them in good condition. Take care not to allow youngstock to become overweight.
Dairy Cattle – Feed 1.5kg of Cattle & Calf Mix for every 4.5 litres of milk produced.
Fattening Bullocks – Introduce Calf & Cattle Mix at around 12 weeks old. Feed from 1.25kg per day up to 4.5kg depending on forage, condition, age and breed.

Hay for Cattle – In winter allow for at least 5kg to 9kg of hay per adult cattle. Additional hay may be necessary in dry summers when grass is limitied.
Water – Cattle should have constant access to clean, fresh water.

Feeding Goats:
Maintenance – adult goats that are not milking will usually need 0.5-1.0kg of pencils per day.
Milking and In Kid Goats – Introduce 1-2 weeks before the kids are due to be born. Start with just a handful and increase gradually so that by the day of the birth you are feeding 0.5kg a day. After the birth, slowly increase the quantity to about 2kg a day. A milker producing 4.5 litres (a gallon) a day will usually require 2kg of pencils.
Kids – the newborn kid will get all its nourishment from its mother’s milk. Introduce feed gradually and in small amounts. By the time they are two weeks old, kids will already be starting to nibble at solid food. Offer small amounts of pencils for them to pick at, as well as good quality hay. This can gradually be increased so that by the time they are weaned (usually at about three months) they are eating at least 0.4kg of pencils a day.
Pygmy Goats – Feed 80g to 270g per day, depending on size and condition.

Hay for Goats – Adult goats usually eat 1kg to 2kg of hay a day and milkers will often need up to 3.5kg a day. Each goat is different, so these are only guidelines. Adjust the quantity to maintain the goat’s condition.
Water – Goats of all ages should have constant access to clean, fresh water.
