Protein Tubs

What Are Protein Tubs?

Protein tubs are self-fed block supplements packaged in plastic tubs that deliver supplemental nutrition to animals that require additional protein in their diet. In addition to protein, these tubs are fortified with key vitamins and trace minerals to provide added nutrition.

Why Do I Need Protein Tubs?

For many months of the year, protein is often the most critical nutrient (other than energy) for animal performance. Protein supplements also help animals extract more energy from the forages that they consume. Protein tubs are an ideal supplement for animals grazing pastures or in situations where the hay or stored forages alone may not meet animal nutritional needs.

When Should I Feed Protein Tubs?

Protein is likely deficient in your animal's diet once grass matures from late summer, through the winter, until it greens up in the spring. Protein requirements of females increase greatly as they near the time of birth, early lactation and up through rebreeding. Protein tubs can be fed all year to provide continuous nutritional support.

Where Do I Feed Protein Tubs?

Most self-fed protein tubs are designed to be placed in dry locations near water or in loafing areas that livestock frequent. For best results, feed them in the shade in the summer months and out of the wind in the winter months.

How Many Protein Tubs Do I Need?

The following factors can help determine the number of tubs needed and consumption rates:

  • Tub size
  • Number & weight of all animals in pasture/group
  • Quality & quantity of forage and other feed available
  • Environmental conditions
  • Location of tubs in the pasture
  • Nutritional deficiencies/needs of the animals
  • Daily intake levels by specific prodcut type

*please consult product labels for more specific information on how to feed these tubs

What Species Should Be Fed Protein Tubs?

Species that are generally well suited to use protein tubs include:

  • Beef & Dairy Cattle
  • Sheep
  • Goats
  • Horses

*please consult product labels for the approved species
