Supplementation Feeding Guide
Recommended daily intake is 20-40g/100kg body weight/day
Feed Rate (g/day)
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.
Commence feeding at higher intake levels 2-3 weeks prior to periods of high risk for grass tetany. Use in conjunction with other grass tetany management strategies. Initial consumption rates may be higher due to salt or mineral cravings.

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.
