Phosmag – Calcium & Phosphorus
Phosmag is a urea-free blend of high levels of calcium and phosphorus with adequate levels of magnesium with trace elements and Vitamin A, suitable for horses, cattle, sheep and goats.
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.
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
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
Optigro 4, 7, 10 blocks are high in cottonseed meal, giving them a good level of natural bypass protein with less dependence on urea. They also has good levels of phosphorus and calcium which means it is the ideal block for young growing stock. Optigro 7 is very useful as protein supplement for breeders. Like all our blocks it is molasses based and packed in an edible cardboard carton. Optigro 7 can be used as a “starter” block, before moving on to a higher urea block such as Drimol 10 or Drimol 15.
Optigro is available in Optigro 4 Sheep, Optigro 7 and Optigro 10.
Why use Optigro?
High level of cottonseed meal can help to maintain growth rate
Includes phosphorus & calcium for skeletal growth
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
