HARVEST TUPPING Raddle Powder Traditional, coloured sheep and ram raddle marking powder, used to colour sheep and rams. Directions for use:

Mix with oil to the consistency of a thick, creamy paste and apply liberally to the ram’s chest. Check regularly as re-application depends on the number of ewes served each day. Colours available:

Available in 450g and 3kg containers

Ram Harnesses

Ram Crayons Wynnstay supply All Weather Ram Crayons which are suitable for use in cold and warm temperatures. The crayons come in a variety of bright colours and leave vibrant marks, allowing ram activity to be monitored.

Marking harness tips for a better breeding season:

• Put the marking harness on 2-3 days before the ram goes out with the ewes. This allows time for the rams to adapt to wearing the harness and allows for the harness to be adjusted for a proper fit

• All crayons are a fully scourable and approved by the British Wool Marketing Board

• Rams can lose weight during the breeding season. The combination of exercise and lack of food consumption reduces the ram’s girth, causing the straps to loosen

• Each crayon should last approximately two weeks, but this can be affected by ram prolificacy and temperatures.

Readjustment of the harness should occur when the flock is brought in for documenting marks or when the crayon is changed. The harness should be tight to the ram’s body and exhibit minimal movement. An improperly fitted harness can cause chafing of the rams under arm area.

AUTUMN RESEEDING If you didn’t look at reseeding last spring, this autumn could be an ideal time to invest in your forage quantity and quality.

Benefits of reseeding • Improved yields • Higher DM intakes • Enhanced disease resistance • Earlier turnout of stock • Increased stocking rate • Increased palatability and digestibility • Improved grazing and silage quality • Higher response to nitrogen (N) fertiliser In order to maximise the yield and quality of your forage, it is important to reseed regularly. Within several years, weed grasses will ingress into a sward – resulting in a reduction of digestibility, feed quality and responsiveness to fertiliser applications.

For more advice on our grass seed mixture range, or to discuss a bespoke mixture, contact your local Wynnstay Representative or call the Seed Department on 01939 210777. All prices exclude VAT



Wynnstay offer a wide range of grass seed mixtures to help producers maximise forage potential. As an independent company, we use the best grass varieties, selected from the Grass and Clover Recommended List for England and Wales. We’re in control of the whole process from start to finish; from seed production with our own grass seed growers, to seed cleaning, right through to formulating and mixing our mixtures, and delivering them direct to farm.

SUPPLEMENTS Introducing an innovative feed supplement - pHix-up® to our range.


Designed with unique, industrial expertise, pHix -up acts directly on the ruminal pH by neutralising excess acid produced by bacterial fermentation. It combines the best performing magnesium compounds providing both a fast-acting and long lasting effect.

For more information about pHix-up, speak to your Wynnstay Representative or Wynnstay Dairy Specialist. Alternatively, you can contact Bethany May, Dairy Specialist on 07771 740857 or e-mail

ANIMAL HEALTH Wynnstay Lamb Bolus Whether lambs will be retained for breeding or finishing, it is imperative that they have the correct balance of trace elements in order to thrive. The 4 key trace elements needed for optimal performance are Selenium, Cobalt, Iodine and Zinc. All these trace elements are contained within the ‘Wynnstay Lamb Bolus’, or alternatively if lambs only require Cobalt, then the ‘Wynnstay Cobalt B12’ bolus is a suitable alternative. Grazed grass can be deficient in trace elements, so supplementing your lambs while at grass with the ‘Wynnstay Lamb Bolus’ gives you peace of mind that lambs are receiving a consistent daily supply of the required trace elements.

Reasons to consider bolusing lambs with Wynnstay Lamb Bolus:


• A consistent daily supply of trace elements. • Wynnstay Lamb Bolus provides the longest cover (6 months) of trace elements. • Supplies 200mg Zinc - to support the growing lamb’s immune system, hoof health and formation of wool. • Iodine - Supplying 375mg. Highest amount compared to other leading boluses. Iodine is required by the animal to support hormone production • Cobalt - 175mg. Required by the rumen microflora to make Vit B12. Prevents Pine disease. Don’t forget - Cobalt can help lambs respond to vaccinations • Selenium - 50mg. Helps with muscle development (White muscle disease) and works in conjunction with vitamin E to support the young ruminant’s immune system • Just one bolus to be administered to lambs from 20kg and over


What is it going to cost? At under 60p per bolus, lambs selling at £2.50/kg would only need to gain a mere 240g to cover the cost of the bolus.


For further information regarding the Wynnstay Trace Element bolus range, please speak to your farm representative or ask in store today

ANIMAL HEALTH Reducing Sheep Lameness Needs A Sustained Approach Rigorous and sustained adoption by farmers of an established disease management protocol is what’s needed to reduce the incidence of sheep lameness on many UK farms. That’s according to research on uptake by sheep producers of the FAI Farms Five-Point Plan to reduce sheep lameness – and the barriers to more widespread adoption carried out by Harper Adams and Hartpury Universities1,2. “The Five-Point Plan gives sheep farmers a clear strategy for managing any foot problems. Implemented correctly over the longer term, it builds natural disease resilience within a flock, reduces the disease challenge and spread on the farm, and improves flock immunity through vaccination. It involves treating affected animals promptly; culling persistent offenders; avoiding the propagation of infection when sheep are gathered together; quarantining any bought-in stock; and routine vaccination against footrot, the most common infectious disease implicated in sheep lameness,” says co-ordinator of the research Caroline Best. We surveyed 532 UK sheep farmers in a cross-sectional study to investigate the relationship between FivePoint Plan use and lameness prevalence. “The mean farmer-reported percentage lameness in ewes was 3.2%, which suggests positive progress by many farms over the last few years. However, not all farmers claimed to be adopting all five points of the plan, which is important if you are to secure sustainable control of sheep lameness over the longer term.

• Not carrying out measures to avoid lameness transmission • Not quarantining bought-in stock • Not treating individual lame sheep within three days • Maintaining an open flock • Routinely foot trimming • Foot trimming lame sheep • Short-term vaccination (over one year, but no more than two years) as a reaction to lameness rather Researcher Caroline Best (pictured examining than as an on-going disease prevention strategy feet) says that only 5.8% of farmers surveyed

were implementing all five points of the sheep

“Consequently, future educational initiatives should focus lameness reduction plan, which suggests a lack on addressing these particular issues to encourage more of focus on achieving long-term rigorous disease control. widespread adoption of the Five-Point Plan. Sheep farmers are making good progress, but by continuing to demonstrate how whole-hearted adoption of all five points of the plan brings results over the longer term, we can all help support and encourage the step change that is needed,” says Ms Best.
