We used Hill Grazer for our ewes before and after lambing as a complement to winter forage. The free-access nature of the product meant crowding at feeding was avoided so older ewes, heavy in-lamb ewes and ewe lambs had good access to feed 24/7. As a result, they held condition well throughout, no matter the weather or the access to grazing challenges we faced in winter!

Our interest in Rumevite Hill Grazer started by seeing it on the Rumenco website and we were lucky enough to win some product in a social media competition!
We fed Hill Grazer to our ewes both before and after lambing as a complement to winter forage. The free-access nature of the product was hugely beneficial as it avoids the feed rush scrum seen with traditional trough feeding and yet the ewes didn’t just gorge on it either! This was especially good for our older and very heavy in-lamb ewes and ewe lambs as they had good access to feed in their own time.
Using Hill Grazer meant our ewes kept their condition well throughout a very harsh winter and tough spring and it was also good to know that even in hard weather the ewes had access to a quality feed block when grazing was difficult.
