LET US KNOW WHAT YOU NEED
The best way of administering the almighty natural sheep drench is described below. We have now mixed the kelp and apple cider vinegar together with the other ingredients to make this easier for the use on the farm. We must stress that it is far better to use LOW dose rates regularly, rather than HIGH dose rates less often.
As the various oils in this product rises to the top of the container and tends to separate over time, it is vital that the mixture is mixed thoroughly with every use. Please keep cool and in a dark place, well sealed. This product is non toxic, non corrosive, all natural and organic.
We recommend that your sheep are drenched at least 3 to 4 times a year, if you are going to continue with your commercial drench this is ok, but please use our drench first, and then the commercial drench. Drench all sheep between 30 to 20 ml per head and half this dose for lambs these rates seem to be the most effective rate currently across Australia. Please note, drenching does not replace a good normal balanced diet.
We use a variety of oils etc to make our drenches, Rice bran oil is a naturally occurring source of antioxidants including tocopherols and gamma-oryzanol etc, a plant sterol that acts as a muscle builder and conditioner. It also contains good levels of squalene a contributor to good foot health.
Canola oil is high in omega 9 and contains a significant source of omega 3 essential fatty acids, and omega 6. Blended with these oils are Adams apple cider vinegar which aids digestion and absorption, promoting a healthy coat, it gives the drench its flavour and is also high in potassium. Seaweed the worlds most nutritious plant is then added, this adds trace elements to further promote health and well being. To this we add our fresh aloe Vera juice and natural sea mineral product which contains over 70 minerals. Our drench is used widely across the world by small hobby farmers with just a few sheep, to much larger concerns with a few thousand sheep.
