High Phosphorus and Calcium Mineral Supplement to Promote Production and Assist Growth, Fertility and Lactation
MegaMin Extra Phos 8 provides natural broad spectrum macro and trace minerals, plus elevated levels of highly available phosphorus and calcium to assist overall herd health and productivity. Phosphorus is essential for energy metabolism, appetite, efficiency of feed utilisation, bone growth, lactation and fertility. Suitable for year-round use, MegaMin Extra Phos 8 is particularly beneficial for stock grazing phosphorus-deficient country.
Supplementing with phosphorus during times when pasture quality and quantity is high can be most beneficial as livestock will respond best to phosphorus supplementation when their energy and protein requirements are being met.
Beneficial for breeders, weaners, maiden heifers and ewes.
Ideal for stock grazing phosphorus-deficient country.
Phosphorus can assist growth, milk production and fertility.
Phosphorus is vital for energy production (dry and green feed).
When to feed
Year-round supplementation for cattle, sheep/goats
Breeders, weaners, maiden heifers and ewes
Green/wet season, phosphorus-deficient country or high-oxalate pastures
Supplementation Feeding Guide
Recommended daily intake is 10-20g/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.
Livestock will crave and seek out phosphorus if deficient. Salt can interfere with consumption and may be altered to slow or increase supplement intake. In phosphorus-deficient areas where bone chewing may occur (either during lactation or where significant signs of lameness are observed) a higher intake of phosphorus supplements (up to150g/day for cattle) may be beneficial.
“MegaMin is cheap insurance for us as minerals and trace minerals are critical for our young heifers and as a boost at joining. We have a range of soil types and intake on the minerals fluctuates with different mobs, times of the year and paddock conditions. We prefer the MegaMin Loose Supplement in order to control the intake and know our stock are getting the minerals into them.”
– Wes & Sue Presho, Taroom QLD
“Steers didn’t perform in our native grass areas which were Phosphorus deficient and bone chewing and botulism was a big concern. In these areas, we now supplement year round with MegaMin Extra Phosphorus because it also provides a broad range of minerals.”
– Peter & Craig Edwards, Milbong QLD
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.
