Optiphos
Optiphos

Optiphos (High in Phosphorus) Optiphos lick blocks are suitable to be fed to cows running on low phosphorus soils where the added phosphorus will improve fertility. Ewes with lambs at foot will also benefit from Optiphos lick blocks because they contain effective levels of phosphorus and calcium. Phosphorus assists in the reduction of abortions, and mortality of young stock. Lactating animals require phosphorus to maintain milk production

Horses grazing pasture that is made up of exotic grasses like Buffel and Kikuyu are at risk of developing Bighead (see page 2). Optiphos lick blocks contain 12% Calcium and are useful in the prevention of Bighead. The Optiphos lick blocks are hard, yet palatable and provide a convenient method of supplementing your livestock’s’ diet with trace minerals and a significant amount of phosphorus.

Why use Optiphos?
Helps prevent Bighead in horses
Improved milk production and fertility
Improved calving percentage

Phos N Pro
Phos N Pro

Phos N Pro 7 11 15 20 lick blocks contain phosphorus and urea which are important in fibre digestion, maintaining feed intake and healthy bone structure. Breeders that calve in good body condition will start cycling earlier. This means that breeders need good nutrition management.

Phos N Pro can be fed to replacement heifers which will assist their growth phase to meet the production target of 650g/day for them to cycle at 15 months of age. Phos N Pro blocks are hard, palatable and weather proof.

Why use Phos N Pro?
High phosphorus with protein
Improved fertility in poor country
Increased milk production in lactating stock
Can be fed all year round
Practical levels of urea

Phosmix – High in Phosphorus
Phosmix – High in Phosphorus

Phosmix is a palatable, high phosphorus mineral supplement. Its proven performance has made it one of our best selling supplements. Phosmix is designed to be used when the available feed contains sufficient protein and energy to meet the animal’s needs, but is lacking in phosphorus. Even in better types of country, lactating breeders and young growing stock who both have higher requirements for phosphorus, may not get enough phosphorus to meet their needs. Because Phosmix does not contain any urea, it is suitable to use in mixed grazing situations, such as cattle and horses in the same paddock. When horses are grazing improved pastures, for example Buffel or Kikuyu, Phosmix may be fed to help prevent Bighead.

Why use Phosmix?

Good skeletal growth
Improved milk production and fertility
Improved calving percentage
Helps reduce the incidence of Bighead in horses

Prosup 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 – High Protein & High Phosphorus
Prosup 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 – High Protein & High Phosphorus

Prosup is a range of high protein dry licks for ruminants, based on cottonseed meal. These products also contain useful levels of phosphorus and optimum levels of the essential trace minerals. The Prosup range starts at 0% urea going through to the top of the range at 30% urea. This means stock can get accustomed to supplementary feeding at a lower urea level, before working through the range as the quality of the available paddock feed deteriorates. Prosup also contains Zeolite, which is thought to improve urea utilisation in the rumen. This range is formulated to be self-limiting on intake, enabling it to be fed free choice.

Why use Prosup?
Improved digestibility ofdry feed
Assists in weight gain
Improved calving and lambing percentages

Protomol, Protomol + R – Molasses Fortifier
Protomol, Protomol + R – Molasses Fortifier

Molasses is often used as a dry season supplement, because it is an excellent source of energy. However, it is very low in protein and phosphorus. Protomol contains both of these essential nutrients, so that when mixed with molasses, it creates an economical and balanced supplement. Protomolalso contains urea, sulphur, salt and a wide range of trace minerals. As Protomol contains cottonseed meal, it is best fed out in troughs, rather than roller or licker drums. Once stock have adapted to the Protomol/molasses mixture, extra urea may be added to boost the effectiveness of the supplement. This will also help to regulate intake. Check with the team at Agricon for details of how much extra urea to add.  Protomol + R has the added benefit of Rumensin as an aid to improved growth rate and feed efficiency.

Why use Protomol?
  • Balances calcium/phosphorus ratio
  • Helps to regulate intake
  • Helps to maintain body condition

Supersulf
Supersulf

Supersulf and Supersulf S16 (High in Sulphur) is one of the only molasses based, high sulphur blocks available on the market. This means that it is both weatherproof and palatable. Supersulf contains 12% sulphur while Supersulf S16 contains 16% sulphur. Supersulf is formulated to be fed out when grazing forage sorghum to improve growth rates and reduce the risk of cyanide poisoning. While forage sorghum is being digested in the rumen, prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide) may be released, which can be fatal to stock. More commonly though, it may be present at low levels which can greatly reduce weight gains.

Forage sorghums are also low in sodium and the combination of supplementing with both salt and sulphur can have a substantial effect on the actual weight gains achieved.

Why use Supersulf?
Palatable
Reduces risk of prussic acid poisoning
Weatherproof
