*NOTES TO FEEDING RATE:
The recommendations provided are intended as a guide only. The amount fed will vary according to the individual animals condition. Maize should be crushed for feeding to horses, cattle, sheep, poultry and pigs (finely ground maize should not be fed to horses, sheep or cattle). With horses, cattle and sheep ensure that new feed materials are introduced into the diet gradually building up to the full daily allowance over a period of one to two weeks. Ensure that horses, cattle and sheep receive adequate roughage in addition to this supplement. The pigments in yellow maize can help to enhance yolk colour when this grain is fed to laying hens. These pigments can also have effects that may be considered undesirable, such as causing yellowing of flesh and discolouration of body fat, if maize is fed in excessive amounts to meat birds or finisher pigs.
Product should be stored in a vermin free, cool, dry place, protected from direct sunlight.
