Our wether weaners were really struggling for nutrition and were only in “store condition at best” at the end of a long hot dry summer early this year. We were very impressed with how quickly their health and condition improved once we started putting the Fabstock out which also greatly reduced the number with scours.
In previous years we always had to channel or crutch about 20% of the mob prior to selling but after feeding them Fabstock for a few months we only had to tidy up about 1%. Also in past years we always lost about 5 or 6 head to natural causes between weaning and selling but this year with them on “Kickstart” we lost none! After a very tough start the eventual sale results on these lambs through the Wagga sale yards was most pleasing. The tops made up to $132 per head with the average being around $105 and we have no doubt that the “Kickstart” made all the difference improving their health, nutrition and growth rates.
We have no hesitation in recommending Fabstock to any prospective purchaser especially since it is only about half the price of most other similar dry licks products.
