Fortamin(Trace Minerals) This block was carefully formulated to contain high levels of both macro and trace minerals. Fortamin is suitable for cattle, horses, sheep and goats, where it is likely that the pasture will be short in minerals. Fortamin blocks may be offered where horses and cattle are running in the same paddock.
Why use Fortamin?
Vital minerals for all
High in copper, cobalt, selenium and zinc
Useful level of phosphorus
Magfertet(Grass Tetany) Grass tetany is most common in adult cows and ewes especially when in heavy lactation and grazing lush grass pastures. It may also occur in cattle that are grazing cereal crops or when cattle are undernourished in cold wet weather. Signs – affected cows may suddenly throw their heads, bellow, and gallop in a wild and frenzied manner fall and develop convulsions. Prevention – place Agricon’s Magfertet blocks out early, one month before expected time of trouble. Magfertet has been formulated for good acceptance.
Why use Magfertet?
High level of magnesium
Molasses based for palatability
Formulated for weather resistance
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
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
Supermix – Feedlot Concentrate
Supermix – Feedlot Concentrate
Supermix is a balanced and economical feedlot concentrate that supplies urea, phosphorus, calcium, vitamins and minerals. For your convenience, it is formulated so that you simply add 1 x 30kg bag per tonne when mixing the feed. Supermix also contains Lasalocid Sodium which is a rumen modifier. This is important because high grain diets are not natural for ruminants. Using Supermix can enable you to achieve faster growth rate and better feed conversion. Supermix has a proven record of excellent performance with both cattle and lambs. Also available in Supermix Salt Free
Why use Supermix?
Convenient – 1 bag / tonne
Faster weight gain
Improved feed efficiency
Less feedlot bloats
Wetphos 5 and 15 lick blocks contain high levels of phosphorus, which may greatly improve calving rates, and a reduced rate of abortions and lower calf mortality.
The Wetphos formulation has been designed to be a hard, weatherproof but palatable supplement for cattle.
The advantage of Wetphos is that it contains low levels of salt, which enables this product to withstand moist conditions. The energy from molasses and cottonseed meal along with urea for added protein and generous levels of trace minerals, make Wetphos a superior supplement which can be fed out prior to the wet season.
Why use Wetphos?
Very high levels of phosphorus
Extra waterproof formulation
Maximised wet season growth rate
Difficult to overconsume
Improved calving and growth rate
Can prevent botulism and improve mortality rates
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
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
