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
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.

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
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
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.

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
