A supplement designed specifically for northern pastures to combat deficiencies in trace elements which can reduce growth & reproduction.
Our best multi-mineral trace element block, designed for northern pastures. Corrects deficiencies of essential trace elements.
By feeding the Free Choice program over a standard multi-nutrient block, the animal has the ability to choose and balance what they require- this ends up reducing consumption by up to 25%.
Olsson's Free Choice System identifies nutritional deficiency in livestock and satisfies the deficiency effectively. Studies have found all ruminants need a source of protein (nitrogen), a source of sulphur, a source of trace elements, and for livestock in the North, a source of phosphorus in order to be at their most productive. We place these major minerals in individual supplement blocks, allowing the animals to choose which minerals they require as they require them. No time is wasted and deficiency is corrected quickly and effectively.
The Free Choice Northern System includes: NT Uraphos (urea supplement for protein), 16% High Sulphur (sulphur), Superphos 8% (phosphorus) and Trace Element Northern (complete trace element blend). Because the Free Choice System splits the macro minerals, animals can have a choice in their nutritional requirements. They can satisfy their own nitrogen requirement, sulphur requirements, and can balance their own sulphur to nitrogen ratio by consuming varying amounts of urea and sulphur blocks separately, avoiding over consumption.
BREEDING CYCLE DIAGRAM
The diagram shows the time of year to feed out Olsson’s blocks in order for optimal production to be achieved. The table indicates time time of year and ratio of blocks to place out.
Please note the product and colour in the table aligns with the product and colour in the diagram.
ADDITIONAL NORTHERN BLOCKS FOR PRODUCTION FEEDING
There are many specialised conditions that require supplementation in order for optimal production to be achieved. Supplying the blocks in the table above at strategic times can greatly increase the productivity of the herd.
