NRM Sheep Pre-Tup Nuts

High performance supplement for sheep prior to breeding

NRM Sheep Pre-Tup Nuts are a high performance supplement to boost the ewe flock at tupping time. Good nutrition is important to ensure high ovulation and conception rates, as well as fewer returns to service.

Key Benefits and Features

  • Quality ingredients in a 10mm nut to ensure optimum utilisation and reduced wastage.
  • High levels of digestible energy and metabolisable energy (ME) compared with forage from processed grains and rumen protected fat.
  • Added protein from legumes and soya to supplement pasture levels which can be low over mating.
  • Contains molasses for increased palatability.
  • A wide range of essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements. In particular, it contains high levels of vitamin E and selenium for follicle quality and conception rates.

The NRM quality assurance programme ensures products are quality tested to meet their stated specifications.

*Metabolisable Energy (ME) values are calculated by a registered laboratory from an equation and are not an actual measured value. Therefore they are only a guide for predicting the energy content of a feed.

Caution: Do not feed to any animal species other than those stipulated on the label.

Feeding Recommendations

Lighter ewes/hoggets: Typical feeding rate is 500g/head/day.

Rams and ewes: Typical feeding rate is 200g/head/day.

Optimum feeding rates depend on pasture availability and quality, and the age and condition of the sheep. Start feeding NRM Pre-Tup Nuts four to six weeks prior to tupping and feed until tupping. To maximise benefits to the flock feed NRM PreTup Nuts during tupping.

Transition onto NRM Pre-Tup Nuts by starting with 50g/head/ day for a week before building up to 200g/head/day over the following week. If feeding lighter ewes and hoggets then allow another week to increase up to 500g/head/day. Feed in a line or many small piles to reduce competition. Ensure an adequate amount of forage and clean water is available at all times.

Contains nutritional levels of cobalt, iodine, copper, manganese, zinc and selenium, as well as vitamins A, D and E. If supplementing these trace elements in other ways (pasture, drench or injection) then please consult with the NRM nutrition team or your veterinarian.
