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
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 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
Phosplus – Protein & Vitamin A
Phosplus is a palatable protein, mineral and Vitamin A supplement. Phosplus is available in 9% urea, 10% urea (with Rumensin), 15% urea (with Rumensin) and 20% urea. Phosplus 10 + R and Phosplus 15 + R have the added benefit of Rumensin. It may improve calving percentage and conception rate, milk production, fertility, digestibility and pasture intake. It can assist with the prevention of weight loss and Botulism..
