Rate my sheep feed

    I'm following Con's thread on managing his ewes with interest and I don't wish to hijack his thread so I thought I'd start this one.

    I'm feeding this particular ewe and lamb nut with good quality silage outside, so far the ewes that have lambed have enough milk and the lambs are strong and lively.


    However, when buying feed I didn't give much thought to which type of nut I fed with price being the main factor for me. I'd hope to get your comments and/or observations on this nut.

    Perhaps posters could share what type of nut/ration they're feeding with brand recommendations if possible. I'm lucky enough to live in an area with at least 6 suppliers within easy driving distance, all of whom stock individual brands so if I got recommendations I might be able to source a better nut (even though this one is working out Ok so far).
