Superblock Mag is a multi-purpose high magnesium (8.5%) block for cattle and sheep. It can be used as an aid in the prevention of hypomagnesaemia (staggers). Superblock Mag can be fed to all classes of female stock during the spring and autumn staggers risk period. It is particular suitable for livestock being fed poorer quality forages during these periods.
Superblock Mag is a medium energy, high protein feedblock with a medium urea inclusion.
Ad-lib forage must be available at all times. Place Superblocks evenly over the entire grazing area. Regularly alter the feeding point to prevent poaching. When feedings indoors, place away from the water source. Ensure a clean water supply is available at all times. Using feeders will reduce waste and restrict intake.
Distribution: Sheep - one block per 25-30 ewes / Cattle - one block per 12 animals
Intake will vary depending on the availability of other feeds, animal condition and stage of pregnancy. An intake guide for ewes and adult cattle is: Ewes - 150-300g/head/day / Cattle - 300-600g/head/day
Intakes can be varied by altering the distribution rates given above.
