SweetPro Sheep Block offers two options: Level I for good quality forage and Level II for rough or limited availability of forage. It is an all-natural protein supplement for sheep, lambs, alpacas, llamas and other species that require low cooper supplements.
This unique, patented ProBiotein formula consists of fermented grains (barley malt, oats, wheat and flax), yeast, live enzymes, dried distiller’s grain, and probiotics and prebiotics to improve animal health, milk production and weight
Sold in 125lbs or 250lb lick tubs and in bulk.
All our SweetPro products break from the tradition of molasses blocks and provide your livestock with healthier supplements that help their digestive systems perform at their natural best.
The benefits from our blends of ingredients and advanced processes, supports animals that grow stronger, faster and avoid many of the health problems with which cattle, horse, sheep and goat owners traditionally have struggled.
The result is healthier animals, better profitability, feed cost savings, less wasted labor and lower overhead. SweetPro products give you a simpler approach to managing your livestock and your business, through better feed supplement science.
1. SweetPro blocks use Condensed Distillers Solubles with much higher protein and nearly 10 times the fat as molasses, plus enhanced aroma and palatability.
2. Energy in SweetPro blocks comes from complex carbohydrates instead of the simple sugars of molasses. This supports resistance to digestive disruption from sugar and starch (No Negative Associative Effect) digestion on the microbial populations which digest fiber in the rumen, keeping rumen pH high for health support.
3. Supported overall digestion and excellent feed efficiency with SweetPro’s fermentation feed ingredients, rich in yeasts and volatile organic acids that support rumen fermentation.
In SweetPro blocks, there’s virtually no starch or sugar and minimal NSC (non-structural carbohydrate). Instead, the focus is on complex (structural) carbohydrate and high by-pass protein value in the distiller’s grain carrier. We then emphasize a top quality vitamin and mineral package with complex organic trace minerals to maximize bioavailability. Your cattle not only get the extra benefit of the supplement’s ingredients, but they also get up to 25% more out of the rest of their feed.
4. The safe, protein sources of SweetPro blocks include high rumen by pass ingredients to give sheep, calves, cows, bulls, and goats an extra boost. No Urea in any of the SweetPro products.
5. SweetPro blocks are fortified with Vitamins A, D and E, and a balanced blend of chelated trace minerals, to supplement lower quality hay, straw and stover

How to Feed:
Daily intake will vary depending on forage quality and nutritional needs. Expected range of consumption is .5-1. .5 to 1.0 lbs. per animal per day.
There may be an adaption period whereby animals will fill in their nutritional gaps, but should level out after one or two tubs. If consumption exceeds 1.0lbs per head per day step up to the SheepLix Level #II.
One tub per 25 head of sheep. Place away from water source. Tubs can be space fed. Place the appropriate number of tubs with the desired group of animals assuming a consumption rate of 1.0lbs of product per day. For example, if the tubs are expected to last for 7 days, then don’t place new tubs in pasture or feeding area until this day has been reached. The product will stay in the animal’s system for multiple days even after the feed is gone.
CAUTION: Do not use in association with another feed containing supplemental selenium.
