Rumiplus 18

RUMIPLUS 18 is a precision-dried lucerne that is chopped to provide the scratch factor and structure to the small ruminant’s diet.

With the addition of lucerne pellets within the bale, a quality diet can be achieved without reducing its nutrient density. As a legume, RUMIPLUS 18 is high in quality proteins, palatable, and should be considered the natural buffer for the small ruminant’s digestive health.

Designed specifically for dairy goats and sheep, and calves

High level of physical fibres specially selected from 4th cut lucerne

Higher protein and shorter length chop

Using different equipment and development-limited crops ensures a higher protein level and strands of 2-4cm. It is short enough for consistent mixing in the ration, but long enough to avoid sorting and encourage rumination

Dehydration to 90% dry matter

Guarantees the absence of losses and deterioration – every kilogramme purchased is fed

No dilution of the ration

Unlike straw there is no dilution of the ration when more fibre is required

Blended from different fields

Every kilogramme of feed is uniform
