How to Selct the Right Product

How To Select The Right Product

Animal Size

Larger framed animals will eat proportionally more than moderate framed animals. Cows typically increase intake 0.25 lb (.11 kg) in mid to late gestation, but often eat less just before calving. It’s best to start cows one to two months before calving. Starting too close to calving can complicate the adaptation period and result in erratic intake.

Weather

Weather can be a factor for intake. In advance of a storm, for example, consumption sometimes increases. SweetPro lick blocks hold up in the rain and harsh conditions.

Plane of nutrition

As noted above, animals depleted of certain minerals or other nutrients, will tend to have higher intake until their overall plane of nutrition changes. Conversely, if hay includes good alfalfa or grain is added to the diet, consumption of the tub declines.

Adaptation Period

The adaptation period can range from ten days to five weeks, depending upon various factors, the most important of which is forage quality. Nursing calves will consume tubs along with the cow but at rates proportionate with their weight as with an 1,100 lb (498 kg) cow consuming 1.25 lbs (.56 kg), her 400 lb (181 kg) calf will consume 0.25+/- to total 1.5 lbs (.11+/- to .68 kg) for the pair).
