Energy block is jumbo solution to feed supplements

LARGE feed blocks for cattle and sheep will save labour while providing energy, minerals and trace elements to maintain health and production, claims manufacturer Dallas Keith.

It says that one "Jumboblock" is sufficient to supplement the diet of 100 cattle for about seven days and 100 sheep for 50 days.

The block is designed to survive adverse weather conditions. At 500kg it could be the largest feed block manufactured in the world, making it unlikely to be trampled or soiled by stock, adds Dallas Keith.

A Jumbo Energy Block costs £160 and a Jumbo Extra Energy Block £190 delivered (01993-773061).
