Viewfield Romneys Murphy Maxwell decided to split the ewes to make a comparison

At Viewfield Romneys near Castle Douglas, Murphy Maxwell decided to split the ewes to compare how snacker feeding with Norvite’s new Ewe Snacker 18 Blend compared to feeding their normal compound.

“Although we were initially cautious about snacking with a blend, this has been the best lambing we have ever had. The ewes lambed in excellent condition, were full of milk and the lambs just spring for fun, so the ALpHA Easi-Lamber minerals in the Blend definitely make a difference”, said Murphy, “Since tailing, the lambs from ewes fed Ewe Snacker 18 are also easily 2-3kg heavier than those from the compound-fed ewes”

Incorporating only raw materials that you know and trust and built around the power of ALpHA barley, the nutty Ewe Snacker 18 Blend provides you with a powerful, superior and economic alternative to snacking with traditional compounds at grass. The results speak for themselves.
