QLF Ewe Energy can help to balance nutrition in sheep diets by providing the protein and energy necessary for sheep to better utilise forage. Ewes have special requirements throughout the year; from tupping and lambing, to lactation and re-breeding their supply of energy, as well as other nutrients, is vital. Only when their nutritional needs are adequately met can ewes perform to expectation. Using QLF Ewe energy can help to increase the nutrient density of the ration to help the ewe meet these requirements, particularly at times when the ewe’s appetite is reduced.
QLF Ewe energy may be fed ad lib in a lick-tank which is the ideal way to meet the nutritional needs of ewes. It may also be fed top dressed, poured onto cereals and forages, or in a home mix.
The benefits associated with feeding QLF Sheep products are as follows:
- High level of readily available energy
- Improved forage utilisation
- Enhanced palatability
- Increased dry matter intake
- Economical and convenient

This QLF protein product is specifically designed for sheep to optimise rumen function and aid in balancing the nutrient value of rations. It includes sugars and rumen-essential vitamins and trace minerals to aid rumen bacteria and hence the digestibility of forages and fibre in the ration.
The NPN protein content is QLF ‘Timed Release’ Protein and the RDP works in a similar way and over a similar release time to that of Soya.
QLF Ewe energy is formulated for feeding ad-lib in QLF supplied lick-feeders. Alternatively, this product can be mixed with TMR/home mix rations at a rate 0.25 – 0.5 litres/head/day for larger sheep. It can be top dressed onto feeds and forage or poured onto silage, hay or straw.
QLF Ewe Energy Typical Feed Rates:
|Typical Feed Rates (Kg/head/day)||Suitable Feeding Methods|
|Dairy||Beef||Sheep||Youngstock||Lick-tank||Pour On||TMR Mix|
- The product should be introduced gradually to acclimatise the rumen, typically in the first 1-3 days, 30% of target feed rate should be included. This should then increase to 60% (target feed rate) for days 4-6, 90% for days 7-9 and 100% after 10 days.
Please note these rates are for indication only and actual feed rates must be approved by your QLF representative or qualified feed advisor.
Do NOT feed to non-ruminant animals such as horses (all equine) pigs, or poultry. Do not feed to energy-starved animals and always ensure plenty of fresh, clean water, unlimited access to forage, and a source of quality major minerals (loose or block).
