What's in My Tub?
After genetics, proper feed, nutrition and supplementation play the most important role in an animal’s health. Nutrient levels in feed, roughage and pasture vary, so balancing energy, protein, vitamins and minerals are key to ensuring their requirements are met. This is especially critical at important stages of the reproductive cycle.
Knowing how each element contributes to the health of your animal will save you money!
Protein requirements increase with lactation and rate of gain. It is required for milk production and reproductive tract reconditioning after calving.
Signs of Low Protein:
- Low appetite, weight loss, poor growth
- Depressed reproductive performance
- Reduced milk production
All of our protein and fat sources are derived from plant origin. No screenings or fillers are used in our facility.
Vitamins & Minerals
Superior levels of trace minerals and vitamins A, D & E. Essential for reproduction and cycling, feed this mineral to your beef cow/heifer herd during breeding and calving for optimal performance.
- Needed for correct energy and metabolism function.
- A key component of membrane, proper osmotic pressure and acid-base balance.
- Required for muscle function, bone formulation and maintenance.
- Involved in energy, protein and fat metabolism, bone formation and maintenance, cycling, milk production.
- Necessary for energy, protein and fat metabolism.
- Essential for bone strength, cycling and milk production.
- Important for sound osmotic pressure maintenance to ensure optimal transport of water and other key nutrients in and out of cells.
- A key mineral in maintaining acid-base balance.
- Necessary for cell formation and function, digestion.
Copper, Zinc, Selenium
- Important for proper immune system function.
Manganese, Copper, Zinc
- Key trace minerals involved in reproduction.
- Important for bone and skin integrity.
- A key component of thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism.
- Essential for adequate vitamin B12 production.
- Required for good breeding (fertility) and calving (prevention of retained placenta) performance.
- Aids in muscle and vision function.
- Important for good breeding performance.
- Aids in calcium absorption for bone strength.
- Essential for optimal immune system function.
- Required for good breeding performance, including prevention of retained placenta.
