Promega sheep

Digestible Undegradable Protein with added fish oil rich in the essential Omega 3 Fatty Acids EPA and DHA

Introduction to the Product

About Promega

 

Promega is a special supplement formulated to enhance ruminant diets with Omega 3 fatty acids and digestible undegradable protein. A free flowing dust free meal, promega is made up of high quality fish oil and sugar (glucose) blended with vegetable protein meal which can be mixed into both compounds and farm-mixed diets.

 

Promega helps to increase milk production, boost reproductive activity and enhance immunity status, to give a greater protection against disease in sheep.  The slow release glucose sugar helps prevent twin lamb disease.

Promega contains a blend of quality fish oil rich in the essential long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA and digestible undegradable protein.

It is now widely recognised that fish oil is unique in containing the essential Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which play a vital role in animal performance with particular reference to fertility, embryo development and balancing the immune system.

The protein in Promega is protected from breakdown in the rumen by a special production process which chemically links it to sugars and also reduces solubility.
