About the Products

Palatability is of the utmost importance in getting lambs to start eating and to consistently consume feed.  Hubbard Life Lamb Grower and Finisher feeds are formulated with high quality, palatable ingredients such as alfalfa and molasses to promote feed intake.

No Added Copper:  All classes of sheep are susceptible to copper toxicity.  Hubbard Life Lamb Grower and Finisher feeds contain no added copper.

Ammonium Chloride helps prevent urinary calculi (water belly).  Hubbard Life Lamb Grower and Finisher feeds provide ammonium chloride and provide the proper calcium to phosphorus ratio to help in the management of urinary calculi.

Organic Minerals:  Organic zinc & organic selenium have been added to help get more of these important minerals into the animal.

Vitamin Fortification:  Hubbard Life Lamb Grower and Finisher feeds are specially formulated to provide Vitamins A, D, E, and thiamin, which are instrumental in stimulation of the natural immune system.

Additional Yeast is added to help with fiber digestion.

Pelleted products reduce the amount of separation of ingredients, therefore reducing feed wastage.

Medicated and Non-medicated Options:  Hubbard Life Lamb Grower and Finisher feeds have both medicated (Deccox® or Bovatec®) and non-medicated options.  Refer to the product tag for specific drug information.
