Bloat Ade (Legume Bloat Control) Legume bloat occurs when cattle or sheep consume highly digestible bloat prone legumes. The soluble leaf proteins produce very stable foam which prevents the valve releasing gas from the rumen. The alcohol ethoxylate in Bloat Ade breaks down the foam allowing the gas to escape. If possible allow stock to access blocks prior to the anticipated season.
Why use Bloat Ade?
Contains 10% alcohol
Palatable molasses based block
Convenient and easy pasture management
Magsup – Very High Magnesium
Magsup is a palatable supplement which has a very high level of magnesium with calcium, phosphorus and trace minerals. Magsup can be used to assist in the prevention of grass tetany in livestock where dietary magnesium levels are low. Cattle, sheep and goats can be fed Magsup.
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
Cowmix – Protein & Phosphorus
Cowmix is a cottonseed meal based protein supplement, which also contains a high level of phosphorus, trace minerals and Vitamin A. It is designed to be used with poor quality feed, such as pasture that has “hayed off” from either frost or dry spell. Cowmix is available with either 5%, 10% or 20% urea, enabling you to choose the product which is best suited to the conditions on your property. It is a very useful supplement for breeders, particularly during the later stages of pregnancy and during lactation. Cowmix may also be used to help maintain growth rate after weaning. Cowmix should be fed free choice, preferably in a covered trough.
Why use Cowmix?
Improved digestibility of dry feed
Improved dry feed intake
Improved calving rate and milk production
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?
Reduces risk of prussic acid poisoning
Pasture 17 + B
In this product we have added Bovatec®, which can increase the growth rates of young stock (cattle or sheep). It will also assist cows and ewes to utilise the available feed more efficiently.
Why use Pasture 17?
Provides protein and energy
Supplied ready to feed
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
