  • Step 2: NE-22 contains additional protein appropriate for mid-to late-summer pastures or when grasses begin to set a seed head.
  • Step 3: NE-30 is a high protein supplement intended for late-season pastures, dry pastures and winter forages such as corn stalks, or whenever a higher protein supplement is desired. NE-30 is also formulated for dairy replacement heifers.

Feeding Directions

Provide free choice as a supplement to pasture cattle at the rate of one block for each 15 to 25 head. Place blocks in pastures near areas frequented by cattle, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Cattle normally consume approximately 0.75 pound per head daily. Consumption may vary depending on climate, grazing conditions, condition of cattle and/or availability of other feeds. In situations where climate and/or other factors result in consumption less than 0.75 pound per head daily, intake of supplement can be increased by providing additional blocks per pasture.

Provide access to fresh water and free-choice salt at all times.

If cattle experience excessive stress due to adverse weather conditions, shipping, weaning, or periods of high production, switching to SmartLic® StressLic® Supplement is recommended.
