Comparative test from 1996 to 1998 on the ADG of 1,335 heifers depending on the use of Sup-R-Blocs
INCREASE IN GAIN WITH THE 200 g/day SUP-R-BLOC COMPARED WITH HEIFERS THAT DIDN'T RECEIVE THE BLOCK OVER SUMMER.
200g/head/day x 150 days pasturing = +30 kg/head
THE AVERAGE CONSUMPTION WAS 800 gr/head/day FOR FREE FEEDING HEIFERS
*1/2 block for 10 heifers rather than 1 block per month over 150 days
Without the Block
Restricted Block * free feed
