Suckler Cow Supplements

QLF suckler cow products have been specifically designed to balance suckler cow diets and satisfy the protein and energy demand that maybe lacking as a result of variable quality forage. Magnesium requirement is also often overlooked and this is included within some of QLF’s suckler cow products along with Vitamins and Minerals to aid rumen function.

As many suckler cows are at grass, providing QLF in a lick tank can allow animals to ‘top-up’ their requirements and can be a particular advantage during periods of poor weather.
