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.
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
Newe Tra Lamb
Newe tra lamb is a good source of energy, protein and minerals. It is ideal to feed to starving stock before being fed Optigro 4. By feeding Newe tra Lamb 6-8 weeks before lambing, milk production may improve, resulting in heavier lambs. Heavier lambs have a greater chance of survival. As some ewes will have twins, extra nutrition will help the ewes to gain weight and keep up their milk production.
Why use Newe tra Lamb?
Improved milk production
Can assist ewes to gain weight
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
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
Calcifort and Calcifort+10 provides a good level of calcium, as well as cottonseed meal and molasses and is a very useful block to be fed when grazing stubble or dry feed. The cottonseed meal can help make up for the low protein of the stubble, while the molasses will provide a source of energy.
Calcifort is available with and without urea. It is useful when a calcium supplement is required, eg. when feeding grain in the paddock.
Why use Calcifort?
High in calcium
Molasses based for energy and palatability
High vitamin A level for better fertility
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..
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
