Warning:

This feed contains NPN (urea) and must be fed strictly according to the instructions. This lick is a supplement and not a complete feed, thus sufficient grazing and roughages should be available. Keep food troughs full, a constant daily intake will prevent over eating and urea poisoning. Before feeding an NPN-containing lick, first give a salt-phosphate lick for 7 days. Vitamin activity decreases with time. Consult the manufacturer or a nutritionist.
