Overcome livestock challenges and boost performance this season with

Supplamins- MidMag Sheep & Cattle

 
Pasture and Cereals are an inconsistent source of nutrients due to continuous changes in composition and availability, both of which can affect the supply of minerals to the animals.  Dry matter intake of grazed pastures can vary quite considerably due to changes in weather conditions. Not only will this affect the supply of energy and protein to the animals but the mineral supply will also be reduced which can lead to a number of metabolic disorders i.e. Grass Tetany & Milk Fever.
 
Magnesium is an essential mineral required for grazing animals due to the risk of the stock developing Grass Tetany which occurs predominately in winter pastures due to the following factors:-
• High Potassium - Reduce plant uptake of Magnesium
• High Nitrogen - Reduce Magnesium absorption in the rumen
• Low Fibre - Reduced retention of feed therefore lower absorption of Magnesium
• Low Sodium levels - Magnesium absorption is a sodium linked process in the rumen
 
Autumn and winter pastures are also deficient in other important trace elements like Copper, Selenium, Zinc, Iodine, Vitamin D, Calcium & Phosphorus. Balancing the Magnesium and Calcium ratio to prevent Milk Fever is essential. Failure to supplement with these critical elements can result in poor conception rates, anoestrus, risk of metabolic disorders and a decline in growth rates, consequently resulting in an economic loss to the farmer.
