Mineral Block

MegaMin Mineral Block

Macro Minerals and Trace Minerals for Optimum Production, Health and Fertility

 

MegaMin Mineral Block is made with the same premium minerals as the Mineral Blend Loose Supplement and is formulated as a weatherproof Lick Block option for all livestock as a year round supplement.

 

MegaMin Mineral Block provides the benefits of a broad spectrum macro and trace mineral supplement that is safe for all livestock. Minerals are essential for growth, health and fertility and because dry feed and even green fodder is often lacking in minerals, clinical or sub-clinical mineral deficiencies can restrict livestock performance. Providing adequate minerals year round can provide real improvement in stock performance and profitability.

 

MegaMin Mineral Block is particularly beneficial for breeders, weaners, maiden heifers and ewes. MegaMin Mineral Block is also available as a Loose Supplement.

Buffel Grass no match for MegaMin

Wes and Sue Presho are among a growing trend of producers who see merit in supplementing with minerals for most of the year.

"Since using MegaMin we've had less calving trouble with our heifers and use the supplement to keep our younger heifers going prior to joining and to assist them with calving and early lactation. MegaMin is cheap insurance for us as minerals and trace minerals are critical for our young heifers and as a boost at joining."
