We place major minerals in individual supplement blocks, allowing the animals to choose which minerals they require.
COB & CO
A premium protein supplement for ruminants grazing dry pastures, stubbles & crop residues.
A 12% sulphur supplement to stimulate rumen activity and wool productivity.
A protein supplement with bentonite. Helps absorb toxins & control green season scouring.
An advanced protein supplement with added trace elements & minerals
An advanced protein supplement with added trace elements & minerals. Counteracts the effects of excess copper taken in by liver cells which have been damaged by liver-toxic plants.
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. We place 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.
Due to the pasture and weather conditions of the region, ruminants in South Australia are commonly deficient in sulphur & trace elements during wet conditions, and protein, sulphur & trace elements during dry conditions. They also often need a bentonite supplement to assist in controlling the scouring associated with wet conditions & dry feed.
The South Australian Free Choice System includes: Cob & Co + 10% Urea (urea supplement for protein), 12% High Sulphur (sulphur), Bentobite (bentonite supplement) and Lactovite + Copper or Lactovite + Molybdenum (complete trace element blends). 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.
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN BLOCKS FOR SPECIAL CONDITIONS
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. To view a more comprehensive list click here.
