Manage nutrition deficiencies to reach production targets

Our team of Field Advisors are here to work with you to provide purpose led solutions to ensure optimum nutrition for your livestock, including advice for the preparation of balanced, complete feedlot rations for cattle and sheep.

While there is an obvious need to supplement livestock to maintain condition or avoid losses during winter and dry conditions, not so obvious are the clinical or sub-clinical mineral deficiencies that can restrict animal performance, even in a good season.

Broad spectrum minerals and trace elements are directly linked to metabolism and are essential for the utilisation of energy and protein. Research has proven that supplementing can provide the opportunity to maximise daily weight gains, even in a good season.

Backed by Science

In replicated trials conducted at University of New England, MegaMin Mineral Blend (the organic minerals that form the base of all of our livestock supplements) was proven to be:

  • an effective dry feed supplement compared to the use of Urea
  • an effective pH buffer in comparison to the use of Rumensin for grain fed stock

These trails confirmed what many farmers had reported over the years. Now, these same natural, organic minerals are formulated with additional elements to ensure there is a MegaMin blend to cover specific seasonal requirements.

The benefits of broad spectrum minerals

Over the decades, vital mineral elements have been depleted from the soil and in many areas of Australia, there is also a natural phosphorus deficiency. This means that, even in a good season, optimum nutrition may not be available in pasture.

MegaMin products are based on natural, organic minerals and trace elements and these broad-spectrum minerals can assist to eliminate clinical and sub-clinical mineral deficiencies that restrict livestock performance, even in a good season.

Organic Registration

Select MegaMin products are compliant with either the Australian Certified Organic or USDA/NOP Standard. Products that have been certified as Allowed Inputs will be accompanied but the ACO logo.

Loose Supplements

The MegaMin Loose Supplement range comprises grass-fed, feedlot or grain assist products suitable for cattle, sheep, goats and horses, and includes blends formulated to meet seasonal nutritional requirements.

Feedlot Concentrates

MegaMin feedlot premixes are formulated to help improve feed conversion efficiency and growth rates. This range is designed to be thoroughly mixed with other feed components to help balance grain rations for feedlot, grain assist, bull, stud, backgrounding and weaning rations for cattle and sheep.


Natural mineral and trace element supplements compliant with the requirements of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program (NOP) for use in certified organic production systems.

Lick Blocks

Combat nutritional issues with the convenience of a palatable, weather resistant lick blocks for year round use.

The MegaMin Lick Block range has been formulated with macro and trace minerals plus molasses in a convenient and palatable, weather resistant option for year round to help livestock meet nutritional requirements in seasonal and environmental conditions.

The AgSolutions Difference

Why Choose MegaMin?

Feedsafe Accreditation

All MegaMin Livestock Supplements are manufactured under Feedsafe guidelines.

Natural Minerals

In addition to specific elements to meet seasonal requirements, the key ingredients in all MegaMin products are natural, organic minerals and trace elements. These broad-spectrum minerals can assist to eliminate sub-clinical mineral deficiencies that restrict livestock performance, even in a good season.

Ration Formulation Service

Whether you are looking to feedlot livestock, prepare bulls for sale, early weaning, backgrounding steers or survival feeding, the AgSolutions team can assist in providing a balanced ration to meet livestock production targets at the least cost.

Specialised Services

We offer a range of services to support our customers including; soil testing and pasture management programs; feed testing and ration formulation; education and training in soil and livestock nutrition.

The Principle of the Primary Limiting Nutrient:

The aim of livestock supplementation is to bridge the nutritional gap between what the pasture can supply and what the animal actually requires to maintain health, growth and reproduction. This is why the principle of the primary limiting nutrient is critical for a successful supplementation program.

Liebig’s Law of the Minimum states that growth is dictated not by total resources available, but by the scarcest resource (limiting factor). For example, the performance of an animal is restricted by the availability of the most limiting nutrient and excess supply of nutrients other than the primary limiting nutrient will have little to no effect on performance.

What Producers Say

Customer Stories

98% Calving Rate

Darren & Jacqui Castle, Kumbia QLD

“Service is what sets AgSolutions apart. We now have options and assistance with our decision making. I couldn’t calculate what they have added to our bottom line.”

Weight Gain Almost Doubled

Dean & Bree Kiernan, Clermont QLD

“In the past, we averaged 0.6kg per day. Since using MegaMin Graze & Grow weaners have averaged 1.13kg per day.”

Increased Weight Gains on Lush Green Feed

Tim Freeman, Denman NSW

“The first big change that we noted was with the cattle grazing beautiful, lush feed turning around from putting on 0.9 of a kg to gaining 1.4-1.5 kg per day just with using the supplement.”

External Parasite Control

David Blackwood, Ballandean QLD

“There were clearly more buffalo fly on the stock with no sulphur…with only a 4-strand barbed wire fence between them, we were amazed at how visible the difference was.”

Feed Testing and Ration Formulation Service

Our nutrition team can review your current grain rations for early weaning, backgrounding, feedlots, bulls, dairy, sheep and lambs; and can further test the nutrient and protein content of raw ingredients, such as grains, hay and silage, making it possible to adjust intake throughout the year to accommodate price changes or feed ingredient availability.

Important Notes on Grain Feeding

When planning to put livestock on grain rations, there are a number of important details to be considered. One common problem can be a lack of effective, chewable, floating fibre in the ration.

“Effective fibre” in the ration provides a floating rumen mat for the effective fermentation of grain.
