Key Benefits and Features

  • Highly digestible ingredients at a time when rumen space and feed intake is limited due to the number of lambs.
  • High protein feed with quality protein sources that provide by-pass protein for good foetal lamb growth and milk production.
  • High levels of digestible energy and metabolisable energy (ME) with a combination of carbohydrates and vegetable oils.
  • A wide range of essential vitamins, minerals and trace-elements. Vitamins A, D and E, as well as the trace elements cobalt, iodine, copper, manganese, zinc and selenium.

Feeding Recommendations

Triplet bearing ewes: 200g/head/day

DO NOT FEED TO SINGLE OR TWIN BEARING EWES

Optimum feeding rates depend on pasture availability and quality and the age and condition of the sheep. Start feeding NRM Triplet Nuts five weeks prior to lambing. Do not start feeding before five weeks otherwise lambs may be too big. Continue feeding after lambing if grass quality or supply is inadequate to help support milk production or where older ewes need extra support.

Transition onto NRM Triplet Nuts by starting with 50g/head/ day for a week before building up to 200g/head/day over the following week. Feed in a line or many small piles to reduce competition, and ensure an adequate amount of forage and clean water is available at all times.

NRM Sheep Nuts contain added cobalt, iodine, manganese, selenium and zinc in addition to calcium, sodium and vitamins A, D and E. To discuss the optimum feeding levels and diet for your flock please call the NRM Nutrition Team on 0800 800 380.
