New Generation Feed Blocks

One look will tell you they're different.

With molasses and cereal-based formulations including soya, barley and maize, Dallas Keith Ltd have struck a balance between making blocks which are hard enough to stand up to the worst weather and providing blocks which give your stock ready access to the supplementary minerals, vitamins and trace elements essential for health and production.



Formulations:

  • Bio Block
  • Bloat Blox
  • Energy Block
  • Extra Energy Block - with a higher level of protected fat
  • Hi-Mag Energy Block
  • Suckler Cow
  • Pre-Tup Tubs
  • Twin Lamb Tubs
  • Dry Cow
  • Cattle Protein
  • Sheep Protein
  • Worming Blocks
  • Deccox Blocks

JUMBO FEED BLOCKS


500kg FEED BLOCKS

A new manufacturing process has enable us at Dallas Keith to produce, what are probably, the world's largest feed blocks - the 500 kg Jumbo Blocks!

100kg TUBS OF FEED BLOCKS

These blocks come in robust plastic tubs and are formulated to the same specification as the JUMBO blocks but are suitable for smaller groups of stock. Supplied in tough rectangular recyclable plastic containers.

20kg TUBS OF FEED BLOCKS

Again using the same high specification as the JUMBO range but readily handled in plastic tub or more environmentally friendly cardboard packaging.

We have designed holders to accommodate 20kg and 100kg tubs.

Advantages


More convenient
- because the number of blocks required is greatly reduced, so are handling and distribution.

Less waste - reduced trampling and fouling plus a more weather-resistant formulation.

Long-lasting - a boon in bad weather with fewer trips to remote grazing.

Competitively priced - energy intake is self limiting so you can be sure of improved performance at a predictable cost - plus all the savings in time and effort!

More 'goodness' in every lick - a high level of dry ingredients with a higher nutrient density. Consistent degree of hardness - for more uniform consumption.

Environmentally - friendly and economical packaging - mainly cardboard, on a wooden pallet.

Flexible nutrient specification - can be made to suit the needs of your area.

PROPER NUTRITION & ENERGY

A recipe for health and productivity

FEED BLOCK MANAGEMENT

Feed supplement blocks are designed for 'ad-lib' administration in conjunction with sound animal husbandry.

Composition of the supplement.

At first, place:

20 kg blocks at a ratio of 1 block per 10 head of cattle or per 25 ewes.
100 kg block at a ratio of 1 block per 30 head of cattle or per 50 ewes.
500 kg block at a ratio of 1 block per 50 head of cattle or 100 ewes.

Once animals have become accustomed to an energy feed supplement, consumption can be managed by

ALWAYS

Subject to formula selected and animal weight, intake of these products should range between 0.5 - 1 kg/head/day for cattle and 30 - 90 gms/head/day for sheep.

CALF TUB Plus

Bull calves from the dairy herd may traditionally have been seen as lower priority and a waste product, but with a reduction in the size of the national suckler herd resulting in a rising demand, focussed attention is needed to make the most of a valuable animal.

November to January is peak time for pneumonia outbreaks, affecting mainly calves up to nine months old. Although there have been cases already, this is not out of line with previous years.

Coccidiosis and BVD are also things to be aware of. Higher stocking densities can see calves competing for food, causing stress and contributing to health problems.

These later cases mean producers should continue management practices which aim to minimise incidence. Pneumonia can be particularly damaging to heifer replacements as it can delay conception at first service, reduce productivity, add up to two weeks on the calving pattern and reduce overall milk yield.

An important tool in this problem is CALF TUB PLUS. This easy and convenient feed lick contains a blend of essential oils and naturally occurring herbs to alleviate the stress and respiratory problems which commonly occur in calves.

The inclusion of a powerful dose of menthol and eucaplyptus will help to alleviate nasal congestion and reduce coughing and irritation in the animals airways.

In addition oregano is added to provide a source of essential oil that acts as an appetite enhancer and which has some interesting properties due to the antimicrobial and antioxidant effect of the pure oil. This results in less stress and reduced incidence of diarrhoea especially when combined with the nutritional value of the lick which also contains essential minerals and trace elements such as selenium, zinc, cobalt, iodine, manganese and copper.

BADGER BEATER BLOCK HOLDERS

It's well known that badgers are responsible for spreading TB to cattle. One such way is through common contact with lick blocks. We have designed a stand to accept 20kg and 100kg buckets which are high enough off the ground to prevent access by badgers.
