Medicated Premix with Broad Spectrum Minerals, Vitamins, and Bovatec® for Enhanced Production
MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer is a medicated premix that provides broad spectrum macro and trace minerals, vitamins and Bovatec®. Formulated to be thoroughly mixed with grains, protein meals, roughage, and other feed ingredients, MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer helps to provide a balanced ration for feedlot, backgrounding and grain assist situations.
MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer contains Lasalocid Sodium as Bovatec®, which is a cost-effective feed additive used to help improve live weight gains and feed conversion efficiency. When mixed at recommended rates, Bovatec® helps to control clinical signs of coccidiosis and reduction of faecal shedding caused by Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii in growing cattle. Among sheep, Bovatec® has proven effective in improving growth promotion and feed-conversion efficiency, and has aided reduction of faecal shedding of Eimeria spp. that cause coccidiosis in sheep maintained in confinement.
Preparation of balanced, complete feedlot rations for cattle and sheep.
Suitable for mixing with grains, protein meals, pulses and/or oil seeds, roughage, and silage.
Ideal for backgrounding and weaning rations.
Bovatec® promotes beneficial rumen bacteria for better rumen function, helping to improve feed conversion efficiency and daily weight gains.
Available without Bovatec® upon request.

“Our Wagyu heifers went from losing weight to gaining good steady growth rates. We totally changed the way we fed our cattle and had to modify our feed ration. We were still able to use our silage and the advice from AgSolutions allowed us to assess the value of our other forages and make changes based on cost and performance. Testing of feed materials proved critical and along the way we further modified our backgrounding rations to be more economical and increase daily gains. In the end, the article we produced speaks for itself and our end market was extremely satisfied with how our cattle went on to perform.”
– Wynand Pheiffer, Wingham, NSW
“MegaMin has provided a saving on our feed rations and our cattle have performed better. Weight gains have averaged up around 2kg per day for light cattle entering the feedlot at 250kg and turning them off around 420kg. An AgSolutions’ Field Advisor is in regular contact with us and if rations need to be reviewed they generally have the new formulation back to us within 48 hours. To have their expertise to review what we do has proven to be very valuable to our business.”

What ingredients should I use in a ration?
The initial selection of ingredients for your ration will depend largely on what is readily available to you and at the lowest cost possible. When selecting ingredients it is important to look at the quality and quantity. A very cheap source of contaminated grain or silage won’t end up so cheap if you end up losing the majority of your herd to toxicity. You must also be able to adapt the ration as the cost and availability of the ingredients change over time.
The main thing to focus on when formulating a ration is to remember that all animals require a balanced diet to bring out the best in their genetic potential.
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.
