We used Nutramix Dry licks for the first time last year after always having used blocks. We were always trying to better utilise dollars spent on supplementation and dry feed utilisation during the winter months. By using Nutramix Dry Licks, each class of cattle was able to be monitored for their intakes and we found that as the winter progresses the ease of changing the Urea and Salt contents of the Dry Licks enabled us to achieve desired intakes.
Minnamurra Pastoral Company has a number of properties over NSW and Western Queensland and we found that Nutramix can supply Dry Licks tailored for each property. I found the on farm delivery service and on farm Nutritional Consultation very beneficial to find the correct product for each class of cattle. Minnamurra Pastoral Company is always looking at improving our breeding herds health and fertility. By comparing Salt Blocks analysis and cost with Nutramix Dry Licks, we were able to supply our breeders a better Vitamin and Mineral Supplementation Program during the winter months.

Swan Hill has been dealing with Nutramix since Matthew started the business in 2001. We’ve found the company to be efficient, friendly and able to give good advice. Nutramix was of great assistance to us while we were drought feeding. Our stud cows came through the dry in strong condition thanks to a ration worked out with Matthew and his team. The supply of necessary feed supplements was always available and delivered on time. I've no doubt that Nutramix can provide the right product across the full range of stock feeding situations. We wish them every success.

Bruce Jorgensen, a long standing Nutramix customer is impressed with the success he has achieved in improving his herd’s fertility by using Nutramix loose mixes. Bruce runs over 400 breeders in the Mummulgum – Mallanganee district on the northern rivers of NSW in the heart of cattle country. Bruce starts feeding Nutramix loose mix to his herd 4 – 6 weeks before joining. Bruce said, “ I now have a 97% calving rate over the whole herd but the greatest improvement has been with first calf heifers. Their calving percentage for their second calf has lifted from 75% to 96%. “I find Nutramix loose mixes very efficient to use both in cost savings compared to other methods of supplementation and in a greater number of calves ‘hitting the ground’ evey year”.
