This product has been designed for “FREE CHOICE” usage in conjunction with good management practices.

Upon initial offering, place tubs at a ratio of one tub per 25 to 40 head and in an area where animals congregate, such as in loafing areas, near water source or where supplemental roughage is fed. Once animals have become accustomed to Southern States Sheep Forage Supplement consumption can be managed:

  • TO PROMOTE HIGHER LEVELS OF CONSUMPTION: Increase number of tubs available.  Relocate tubs closer to loafing, water, or feeding locations.
  • TO REDUCE LEVELS OF CONSUMPTION: Reverse above practices.
  • OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS: Provide unlimited drinking water. Provide adequate roughage in terms of both quantity and quality.  Provide adequate mineral supplement free-choice and in addition provide SSC Sheep Mineral for sheep.
