As lambs continue to hit record prices week after week, its timely to look at grain feeding and the pros and cons that come with full grain diets. Lambs require essential vitamins and minerals to continue their growth which is why it’s important to understand the way a lamb’s rumen and digestive system works.
One of the most rewarding parts of our job is to see our products on farm, improving efficiency and satisfying a customer need. Last week we visited a recent customer, Bill from Narromine NSW who had recently purchased 12 BROOKFIELD Sheep Feeders.
Market prices for lambs have continually been hitting records this year and hay and grain prices have more than doubled due to the severity of the drought. Producers are being challenged to weigh up the options of feedlotting lambs and how profitable that may be with input costs rising and feed sources becoming unpredictable in supply.
