Breeder Mineral Season

With the economy these days, you want to make sure every cow gets bred back in timely fashion. Post calving nutrient intake is very crucial to the ability to get the cows rebred and maintain the health and immunity of the calf. As we look at providing the needed vitamins and minerals, the price of mineral supplementation is minimal compared to the price of feeding an open cow for a year with no return. We have formulated BREEDER XTRA mineral to maximize conception rates. It has chelated (highly available) Zinc, Copper, Cobalt and Manganese along with organic Selenium and elevated levels of Vitamin E to boost the immune system as well as 5% Magnesium for grass tetany. It also contains Moss yeast product to help reduce scours by attaching to gram negative bacterium (E. coli and Salmonella) to slough them out of the system so they do not attach to the intestinal lining to create problems. Customers that have been using this product are seeing 95-100% conception rates. It is also grouping the calves in a tighter calving window, 75-80% of the calves are coming in the first 20 days. A general rule of thumb is 1 lb of mineral per cow per week; if they are consuming too much – add some salt to limit the consumption since they can only adsorb so much mineral (rock) each day. Is it really worth saving 35-50 cents per week and run the risk of having an open cow? If you have questions on which minerals are right for the time of the year, give us a call and we will be glad to discuss your needs and our minerals are made here in house so we can modify for your specific needs and wants. We can customize any mineral you want with the addition of Essential Oils, Fly Control, Antibiotics, Yeasts (Moss), or Chelates.
