On extensive units the feeding of a ration in roll form is particularly important.
Additional protein can boost the production of colostrum, so important during the
first few hours after birth. Lamb weights and viability will also be improved.
PREMIUM EWE 20
This high energy diet is suitable for feeding to high performance flocks where good
quality forage is available. This diet will allow Shepherds to maximize utilization
of the better quality forage whilst Maintaining the ewes in good condition prior
to lambing. Post lambing Milk production will be maximised by the inclusion in this
ration of Quality proteins which will complement the poorer Quality protein derived
from the forage.

successfully fed on this high quality ration. Ensuring the lambs get off to the best
FLOCKMASTER 18 NUTS
Where above average forage is available many traditional extensive flocks may be
fed economically on Flockmaster 18. This economical diet will provide much needed
supplementary protein to complement the forage thus promoting good foetal growth
and boosting early milk production.
Rapid Lamb Pellets
This high energy ration contains added fish meal and is formulated for intensive
units with a high level of productivity. Specified at 18% protein This 15mm roll

Mineral levels in Heygates sheep feeds are carefully controlled to guard against
mineral disorders. Magnesium has been limited to 0.45% in all ewe rations but will
be increased at turnout to 0.75% to combat staggers. Vitamin and trace element Inclusions
are generous for overall flock health. Zinc and selenium levels have been enhanced
using highly available Zinc Bioplex and Selplex 50. These specific trace elements
are associated with hoof condition and lamb viability.
