Stock Supplement Administration…

We often get asked, what the best way is to administer the products within the Vitec liquid stock supplement range. So, we thought we would break it down.ย 

๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŒพ Drenching

Is the most accurate way to administer our liquid supplements, as it ensures that each animal is getting the recommended dosage. Whilst time consuming, it does provide peace of mind that all animals have received an equal amount/dosage. A standard drenching gun can be utilised or a syringe can also be an effective alternative.ย 

๐Ÿฎ Adding to a water source or feed

Our liquid supplements can be added to a water source (excluding Cod Liver Oil) or sprayed over feed. This method is far less time consuming but does result in variable uptake. If adding to their feed, we recommend using a watering can, simply mix the Min-Kel or Apple Cider with some water and then pour over the feed to ensure that the product is spread over the product.

๐Ÿ’š Eezy Feeder

A completely self administered method where livestock choose to uptake the supplements on offer by licking the balls within the Eezy feeder. The benefit of this method is that itโ€™s quick to set up and highly portable, so can easily be moved between paddocks. The Eezy feeder also allows the animal to self select if/when they need the extra boost.ย 

While each method has its proโ€™s and conโ€™s we find that it can often be useful to use a combination of the above.
