Roughage and feed analyses are important for the development and health of sheep, ensuring a well-balanced ration. Knowledge of the quality and nutritional value help with feeding the right quantities, at the right time, and in the right proportions.
The composition of roughage varies from batch to batch, from farm to farm and from year to year, so it is important to have the roughage analysed. The feed value analysis for sheep tells you exactly how many nutrients your sheep are consuming.
Analysis of the feed will help you to ensure that the growing animals and the ewes with lambs are consuming the nutrients they need. You thereby prevent disease, and the related unnecessary costs.
Water source for sheep
We can also analyse the water source to identify the presence of a number of pathogens. As a farmer, you want the optimum quality of drinking water for your sheep. This may seem obvious, but it is not. The quality is insufficient at a great number of sheep farms, and in many cases this also has negative consequences for the health of the livestock. You can have analysis carried out on water pumped to the surface, surface water, water from pasture pumps or water from the barn tap.
