Trace Mineral Premixes
These trace mineral blends have been developed for on-farm addition to feed blends or liquid trace mineral supplementation.
Nutrinza Ultramin Sel-Gold is a soluble mixture designed to be administered to lactating dairy cows through the drinking water (troughs and in-line), via power drenching systems or mixed with feed.
If this product is applied to feed (rather than dissolved and administered as a drench or in the water via a ‘dosatron’ of some form) then it should first be carefully mixed with 45g of a carrier to 5g of Ultramin Sel-Gold (ratio of 9:1) so that the combined application rate is 50g/ cow/day.
The dose rate may be adjusted by a qualified nutritionist or vet depending on an assessment of herd’s current mineral status, and level of production being targeted.
This is a soluble product suitable for water dispensers, drenching or applying via the feed.
This option is mainly used during the facial eczema season.
Typical Nutritional Analysis
Feed Storage on Farm
As with any grain or meal feed products need to be kept dry as moisture combined with heat can cause fungi to grow. Common on farm storage methods are: in a shed or unused fertiliser bin; in a covered pit; on a concrete pad; or in a cutting, covered with plastic sheet and tyres. Most feed should be used reasonably expediently (within 40 - 50 days). The longer you plan to store feed products the better your storage facilities need to be.
All animal feed products should be fed as part of a healthy balanced diet matched to the specific requirements of the herd. Nutrinza makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the suitability of any of the products supplied to the specific requirements of your animals. Please note that recommended feeding rates are given as a guideline only and will vary based on the total diet and actual feed intake of your animals. It is recommended that you consult your vet, nutritionist or farm consultant before making any dietary changes. Nutritional information is based on accredited feed nutrition sources and sample test results. Specifications on an individual feed test will show some variation.
