The Importance of VITAGEST

Vitagest is organic selenium with enhanced vitamin E that’s blended together in a pre-mix and included in our Ewe & Lamb ration and cube.

Minerals play a very important role in a ewe’s diet, especially during pregnancy when their requirements increase for some minerals. The inclusion of enhanced vitamin E and selenium ensures:

  • Increased lamb vigour
  • Lamb stand and suckle earlier
  • Increased vitamin E in colostrum helps increase immunity
  • Lamb mortality rate decreases
  • Plays a preventative role against mastitis
  • Increased reproductive performance

Independent trials carried out in University College Dublin (UCD) have shown that feeding organic selenium plays a vital role in the above mentioned characteristics. This trial also shows lamb growth rates improved by 6.5% and weighed 2kgs heavier at 15 weeks of age.
