Michael Donald of Jandowae has had AgSolutions develop a backgrounding ration for his 500 head currently on feed.

 

“We were using a liquid product but MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer is easy to add and provides a complete product that suits us. We normally feed a silage based ration but are currently using grain and stubble to background our cattle.

 

When these steers reach their entry weight they’ll move onto a finisher ration. AgSolutions has formulated background, starter and finisher rations for us and has tested our feed ingredients to improve the accuracy and efficiency of our rations.

 

It’s been 3 months since we started using MegaMin Feedlot Enhancer and we’ve had no issues or health problems and we really appreciate the assistance to adjust our rations as our forage changes.”

 

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.
