Extra Phosphorus

MegaMin Extra Phosphorus

High Phosphorus, Calcium, Macro and Trace Minerals

 

A safe Phosphorus supplement with the added benefits of calcium, magnesium as well as broad spectrum macro and trace minerals. Suitable as a year round supplement for breeders, weaners, maiden heifers and ewes.

Phosphorus is particularly beneficial for growth, lactation and fertility and is essential for stock grazing pasture in low phosphorus areas.

 

The lack of phosphorus and magnesium can often be limiting factors for stock grazing green feed so there is the opportunity to maximise stock performance by supplementing additional phosphorus and magnesium at this time.

 

Phosphorus is one of the most important minerals in animal nutrition and is essential for appetite, efficiency of feed utilisation, bone growth and fertility. To ensure the maximum response to phosphorus supplementation, MegaMin Extra Phosphorus is formulated to provide calcium, sulphur, manganese and copper.

 

Why broad spectrum Minerals are essential

Macro minerals and trace minerals are needed year round by livestock for optimum production, health and fertility. Read more>

 

Why Phosphorus is important

  • Phosphorus deficiency can cause poor growth rates and low calving percentages.
  • When there is plenty of lush green feed during Spring or a wet season, phosphorus is likely to be the major limiting nutrient, especially in phosphorus deficient areas.
  • Phosphorus is a crucial nutrient for converting feed into energy.
  • When magnesium is fed over an extended period, it is important to add phosphorus as a precautionary measure because magnesium can reduce phosphorus absorption.

MegaMin Caters for all areas and all seasons

Craig Edwards manages a 9000 acre South-East Queensland operation that runs over 1100 steers and 300 breeders, he said steers weren’t performing in their native grass areas, which were phosphorus deficient, causing bone-chewing and botulism to become a growing a concern.

 

“Now, we supplement these areas year-round with MegaMin Extra Phosphorus because it provides reduces phosphorus deficiency and provides a broad range of minerals.  Intake variations did occur throughout the season, however our cattle have stopped chewing bones” – Craig Edwards
