MineralBoost is a rumen dispersible granule containing high-quality calcium, magnesium and sodium.
When added to an animal's diet, MineralBoost will maximise production and live weight gain whilst also safe guarding against metabolic disorders. The rumen dispersible granule is a patented delivery technology designed to exhibit the benefits of a granule during mixing and freight (less dust, less segregation, less waste), while dispersing into super-fine powder once inside the rumen - providing a very convenient method of adding essential nutrients to an animal's diet.
Dose: 200gms per cow per day
It is not recommended to alter the dose rates of MineralBoost products unless directed by a nutrition consultant.
MineralBoost Classic is made up of calcium, magnesium and sodium. To understand the macro mineral levels available to the cow, MineralBoost is reported in elemental levels per 200gm dose rate, which is as follows:
Calcimate in MineralBoost is manufactured from high-quality New Zealand limestone. The industry's most stringent manufacturing and testing processes ensures the outcome is a fine, high-calcium supplement you can trust.
Calcium maximises milk production post-calving, optimises assimilation, improves reproduction, strengthens the cows' immune system, counters the stress from cold weather and extreme activity (i.e. mating, calving) and enables younger stock to reach their growth potential.
MineralBoost contains high-quality magnesium sourced from Australia.
Magnesium is required for the production of hormones that are important for the absorption of calcium from the gut and the mobilisation of calcium from bones. Magnesium supplementation will reduce animal health problems and increase milk production. The magnesium requirement of the modern dairy cow has increased, partly due to increased use of nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) fertilisers and also due to an increase in cow genetic merit. All cows are to some extent deficient in magnesium in late-pregnancy. Cows cannot access magnesium stored in the body and therefore it is best to be supplemented daily.
MineralBoost contains quality New Zealand-sourced sodium. Dairy cows routinely expel sodium from the body in urine, faeces, saliva and milk which has to be replaced.
Sodium is an essential element for animals, and may be one of the most cost-effective methods of increasing milk production. Research has proven supplementing with sodium can give a significant production response when the dietary level is low. Sodium in some form should be available at all times all year round. Rapidly growing young animals require sodium for new tissue formation and if sodium is deficient, appetite is suppressed.
Quality Assurance Guarantee
MineralBoost is the only macro mineral product which is routinely tested for heavy metals, mineral content and degradation qualities. MineralBoost is traceable by batch number giving you complete peace of mind for you and your animals.
Seek advice from your nutrition advisor before substantially altering ration componentry. Ensure MineralBoost Classic is thoroughly blended throughout the ration before feeding. Do not feed MineralBoost Classic four weeks before calving. Care should be taken in adlib feeding situations.
