Nutrition

We aim to have our sale bulls on a steady plain of nutrition up until sale day with enough feed so you can see their potential but not so much that they melt when you take them home or breakdown. We will never lot feed and the vast majority of their nutrition is from pasture and crop.

This year’s sale team were weaned onto buffel pasture in April 2016 and fed a grain supplement for six weeks through controlled intake feeders. They were then put onto a lucerne/wheat irrigated crop interspersed with periods on buffel  from June to November.

They were the only class of cattle we managed to keep on crop over a very hot and dry summer. They were on a forage sorghum crop with supplementary grain fed through controlled intake feeders. This crop too was interspersed with periods on buffel pasture.

From June to September 2017 the sale bulls have been on one of the best Barley crops we have ever produced. Again they have been supplemented with a low heat grain ration through controlled intake feeders.
