Opti-Lix Sheep Magnesium

OPTI-LIX SHEEP MAG is a low moisture, controlled intake lick containing 8% magnesium from a bioavailable source to help support optimum blood magnesium levels. At the recommended feed rate this will supply above a ewe’s requirement for magnesium during lactation. The high sugar content of the product also makes it very palatable, which gives assurance that sheep will readily take the product which is critical in the control of this common, well known spring challenge. The high sugar content will also support forage digestibility ensuring ewes get the most from their diet during peak lactation.

OPTI-LIX SHEEP MAG contains a full range of other minerals, vitamins and trace elements to help balance those often found deficient in grazing. The inclusion of protected zinc also aids in the management of good tissue health, reduced foot issues including lameness and mastitis.

OPTI-LIX SHEEP MAG is available as a 20kg bucket. It is recommended that it be offered free-access when there is a risk of grass staggers at a ratio of one bucket per 35 head of sheep. It is not recommended for ewes pre-lambing, ad-lib forage should always be available. Ewe intakes up to 50 g/head per day.
