A complete feed for all ruminant species in the juvenile stage from post-weaning onwards:
- can be used on cattle up to 150 days of age;
- on sheep and goats up to the time before the first calving.
It can be a valuable feed base to complement grazing or other on-farm feeds. The majority of ingredients are forages, alfalfa in various forms and grass hay. Totalfeed Mini is formulated to ensure optimum nutritional contribution due to the high quality of the forages used in its composition. The forages also provide the structured fibre base necessary to stimulate rumen motility and promote rumen morphological and functional enhancement.
On very young animals, particularly kids and lambs, it is advisable initially to break up the parts.
Then make the quarters available without altering their structure: this will limit the animals’ natural tendency to select the components, making ration intake more regular.
If pasture is available, make the product available in the same way during housing: the animals themselves will self-regulate the ingestion.
In ad libitum feeding, the voluntary daily intake can be as high as 1.5 kg in small ruminants:
- Small ruminants to 1.0-1.2 kg;
- Cattle close to 150 days of age to 4-6 kg.
If a different use of the product is envisaged, we recommend that it be used under the guidance of a trusted technician, to whom Gruppo Carli will be happy to provide the technical details useful for the best use of the product.
