Broad Spectrum Macro and Trace Mineral Block for Optimum Production, Health and Fertility
MegaMin Mineral Block is made with the same premium natural broad spectrum macro and trace minerals as MegaMin Mineral Blend and is formulated as a weather resistant lick block option for year-round supplementation of all livestock.
Broad spectrum minerals are directly linked to metabolism and are essential for the utilisation of energy and protein. Supplementing livestock to maintain condition and avoid losses during winter and dry conditions seems obvious, but not so obvious is the need to supplement during good seasons or periods of lush pasture growth when clinical and sub-clincial mineral deficiencies can restrict animal performance. Supplementing year-round and during the good seasons can assist mineral uptake and help maximise daily weight gains.

Livestock may be prone to consume greater levels of product at the beginning of a supplementation program, usually due to cravings for a particular mineral or protein that the mix provides. Download the guide to evaluate consumption rates and tips to manage consumption levels.
Our horses run with the cattle in rotation which is what led us to use MegaMin as a mineral supplement to maintain a base level of nutrition to supplement our pastures. MegaMin has everything in it that we were looking for and became a more convenient option for us than free choice minerals. Cost of production is the only thing we have 100% control over and the investment in supplementing is affordable. Our cattle respond well to minerals in this country. A major benefit of our supplement program is that all cattle have access to tubs with MegaMin their whole life. This means our steers entering the feedlot are conditioned to going to a trough and immediately gain weight.”

“We came across MegaMin in 2014 and the depth of minerals and trace elements was greater than any other supplements on the market. Our lease country needs minerals and the conventional 30% Urea blocks are just too expensive for what they deliver. MegaMin has done a better job for us at one third of the price. We keep the MegaMin Mineral Blend up to them the whole time and our cattle look surprisingly well despite the pasture they are on. These cattle have come through the drought well and their coat condition reflects how strong they are. We’ve also seen a reduction in prolapses despite the tough times when our cows would normally struggle.”

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.
Minerals And Trace Elements Essential For Animal Health
Macro minerals and trace minerals are needed year round by livestock for optimum production, health and fertility. Providing livestock with adequate minerals can assist to stimulate metabolism and feed efficiency to increase daily weight gain and body condition scores for stock grazing both native and improved pastures.
