Sweetlix® 20% Protein Tub

Tag: 13406185
Form: Tub
Weight: 200 lbs.

Sweetlix® 20% Protein Tub is a labor-saving molasses tub that delivers 20% protein.

  • Feed one block per 20 head of cattle. (Timid and smaller animals need their share).
  • Place the blocks where animals congregate (loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas).
  • Feed blocks continuously along with plentiful sources of good quality forage and clean, fresh water.
  • Cattle will consume 1-2 pounds per head daily based upon a 1,000 pound animal. Two (2) pounds of this product will supply 3 mg of selenium.
  • If additional mineral and vitamin fortification is desired, feed in addition to this tub a free choice mineral containing salt.

Important: Consumption of this block will vary depending upon the condition of the animals, quality and quantity of forages being fed, seasonal weather conditions and, most importantly, the feeding location of the blocks with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas. If over consumption occurs for more than two weeks and repositioning of the blocks does not correct the situation, remove blocks and evaluate overall feeding program.

Introduction Period: During the first week of use, place the blocks approximately 50-75 feet from loafing and/or watering areas. As cattle become acclimated to the presence of the blocks, some repositioning may be necessary to achieve proper consumption. Move blocks closer to increase consumption; further away to decrease consumption. Do not provide starved cattle free access to this block.
