Finishing store lambs on maize and brewers grains

Brewers grains is high in protein and low in energy. I’ve fattened lambs on grainbeet in the past. 3:1 4:1 5:1 I would recommend 3:1 or 4:1 though. Cheaper than most other things but they tend to turn some of it to clart. Takes time too. I couldn’t cope with the lower throughput of sheep
 
a lot is depending on the quality of your maize silage but can do 1kg of brewers and 2.5 kg of maize silage. You wont risk acidosis with the brewer in there, there is plenty of fibre and yeast to keep the rumen healthy and long fibre from the silage. they wont fatten quick but on current feed prices so much cheaper than anything else. with only 200g you are very low on protein.
there are quite a few farmer feeding store lambs 1kg of maize silage, 1kg brewers grains and 0.5kg of rolled barley and minerals.
