Business Summary
Stocklick Trading is a leading Australian manufacturer of custom wet and dry season supplementation.
About Us

Stocklick Trading Mt Garnet was formed in 2000 by Bill McGuinness (Managing Director). Bill identified a need in the market for a state of the art production facility producing reliable, high quality livestock supplements customised to individual requirements in a timely fashion and at an economical price. Bill also believed that customers required quality advice based on experience which was not readily available at the time. Within the first three years demand exceeded the supply capability of the Mt Garnet plant and a second plant was opened in Charters Towers. A third branch in Roma was opened in July 2010. Today Stocklick Trading leads the way in supplement requirements across Australia.

Managing a supplement program is essential to achieve satisfactory results and therefore Stocklick is committed to providing sound, practical advice to our customers when establishment of a program is required. We achieve this by employing suitably qualified sales representatives based over six locations and a highly experienced nutritionist with over 30 years industry experience. The company owns and operates two Robinson helicopters to service the vast territories of Northern Australia to ensure our customers have the best access to practical and technical assistance. Stocklick employs extra staff during the dry season to enable the timely production and supply of products at the busiest times.

The future of beef and wool production in North Australia is continually being challenged by economic, environmental and quality demands. Stocklick is committed to ensuring the grazing industries have access to leading edge supplement products which continually meet these challenges, while actively striving to lead the way in developing new products and systems that will provide a competitive edge for our clients. Stocklick’s future growth is entirely related to the prosperity of the North Australian grazing industry and as such our business revolves around trust based relationships with our customers. Future expansion of Stocklick operations will be designed to further extend this partnership to provide both financial and lifestyle benefits to all concerned.

What does total protein mean in the lick analysis?
Total protein is the combination of both crude protein and equivalent crude protein, (Crude Protein + Equiv Crude Protein = Total Protein). Crude protein is made up of true protein usually from the inclusion of protein meals, grains, etc. Equivalent crude protein is derived from non-protein nitrogen sources such as urea and gran-am. (Non-protein nitrogen = nitrogen not derived from protein, hence they are nitrogen sources).
After rain, do I need to remove the water laying on top of molasses mixes in troughs?
If the molasses has been mixed properly and the urea is completely dissolved there is no chance of the urea dissolving in the water. The safest thing to do is leave the water sitting on top of the molasses. The water will either slowly evaporate or the cattle can safely drink the water off the top to reach the molasses. The remaining molasses is safe for the cattle to consume as water is lighter than molasses and therefore will only sit on top of the molasses and not mix through.
