Blocks can build up lamb weight

IMPROVE daily liveweight gain in lamb rearing and finishing systems with its quality lamb blocks, claims Rumenco.

It adds that as grass declines in the autumn supplementary feeding can help lambs finish. Rumenco also recommends these blocks to supplement stubble turnips, swedes and fodder beet.

The blocks are designed to replace trough-fed concentrates so they include starch, digestible undegradable protein (DUP), yeast to enhance performance and selected minerals.

Each 20kg block costs £6-7 through merchants (01283-511211).
