- Reduced acidosis
- Improved health
- Increased weight gains
“The most relaxed feeding I’ve done.”
Ashley and Maryellen Volz, Highgrove, have grain fed for many years and after attending one of AgSolutions Livestock Nutrition Seminars this year, switched over to using MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer in their feedlot rations.
“After testing our roughage and grains, AgSolutions formulated our rations and we’ve been able to drop out Lime and Bicarb soda from our old rations. Using MegaMin is easy at 1 bag per tonne of ration and it’s a lot easier to handle and transport compared to liquid concentrates.
Feeding steers and heifers through to 600kg, we have had a smooth transition to using MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer, with nil acidosis or health issues and no extra costs. Prior to mixing our own rations, we had a lot of trouble with inconsistency in commercial rations and I often spent a lot of time checking pens for health problems.”
To ensure our customer are getting the best possible weight gains with safe and balanced feeding programs, in addition to our new Feedlot Enhancer, AgSolutions now offer a ration formulation service for feedlots.
When required, this program includes testing of the nutrient and protein content of raw ingredients (grain/hay/silage) and adjustments can easily be made throughout the year if there is a change in prices or availability of feed ingredients.
