    My Pruex trial

    Hi all. I’m interested in potentially using this in our lambing sheds. What rate are folk misting their shed with the Animals Housing Stabiliser? I spoke to the folk at Pruex the other day and I’m sure she said 1 litre per 400m2 of floor space every day. Works out at 10p per m2 per week. For my...

    Oats at lambing 3in1

    Have many of you tried using them to feed ewes inside with the 3 in 1’s? I really like the concept and reducing the scrum at feeding time can only be a good thing.

    Mineral Best Before Date

    Hi all, looking for your views on this. I have a few bags of ewe minerals from last years lambing that have a before date of July 2017, 6 months after manufacture. Am I short changing the ewes feeding these minerals? Do they degrade that quickly? Thanks
