Liquid Feed Supplement for Cattle
Product Code: 
GEP15

Purpose:

To feed as a supplement with dry feed and roughages to elevate the fibre digestibility and efficiency of utilisation of dry low protein pastures and farm-produced forages and stubbles.

Product Appearance:

StockGro – EconoPro appears as a mid-brown viscous liquid with a consistency similar to that of thick cream. Its taste is salty and slightly sour and bitter.

Target Animals:

Feed to dry and late lactating cattle, moderate performance steers and bullocks on high roughage/dry pasture diets or other regimens where protein supply is marginal.

Product Description:

StockGro – EconoPro is similar in some way to StockGro – HiPro but lower in specification of certain nutrients and cost. Intake control may not be good as HiPro.

StockGro – EconoPro is a palatable Liquid Feed Supplement (LFS) designed to be fed free access to cattle under dry pasture, roughage, stubble and drought conditions.

StockGro - EconoPro contains 26% crude protein together with essential minerals, trace elements and vitamins.

Intake is controlled to promote little and often to maximise microbial performance.

Feeding Instructions:

Offer StockGro – EconoPro free access in polypropylene 600 litre tubs. The duration of supplementation will depend on the quality and quantity of pasture and roughage available.

Use one tub for 40 – 50 animals. ANP can supply tubs at reasonable cost.

It is advisable to place tubs of StockGro - EconoPro in positions in the paddock that are well away from or diametrically opposite to the water source.

Roughage in the paddock must be available and plentiful.
