New system for supplementing sheep with minerals
Not rocket science, just doing a proper job! How can one drench fit everyones farm? Clearly it is just a sales pitch.
Here is our rational approach:-
Ovipower COBALTcomplete components:-
+/- 2 Ovi-Power Drenches- with & without copper- Vitamins and minerals in a liquid seaweed base.
+/- Copper needle capsule, or 4 g. every 6 months
+/- LAMBpower bolus providing High Cobalt with Selenium lasts same duration as the drench = 8 weeks
+/- EWEpower bolus providing High Cobalt with Selenium lasts a year
+/- Selenium and Iodine bolus every 6 months
Lambs can be given the supplements before weaning and then again at weaning to carry them through to going fat. Example cost is £1 for drench and bolus twice.
Replacement females (and tup prospects) can be put on the ewe regime
Ewes (and Rams) usually on annual Ewe Bolus +/- Copper capsule 7 or Se/I every 6 months
Drench twice plus annual bolus for a 75kg ewe costs £2.40 per year, not per dose and you get long lasting cobalt.
Usually, if the soil and pasture are good, there is no need for mineral buckets.
