TWO NEW sheep blends have been introduced at BOCM Pauls’ Turriff Farm Feeds plant – one specifically aimed at the breeding sheep sector and one at the finishing lamb market.

Both contain Lintec – a product based on extruded linseed which has a high Omega 3 level – and which promotes good fertility in breeding ewes and fast growth rates in growing and finishing lambs. It was one of the main reasons why fishmeal was a popular ingredient in sheep diets, but that is no longer available due to legislation, say the company.
