MineralBoost Bovatec 20CC® is made up of calcium, magnesium, sodium and Bovatec 20CC®. To understand the macro mineral levels available to the cow, MineralBoost is reported elemental levels per 200gm dose rate, which is as follows:
Calcium - 48gms elemental
Magnesium - 10gms elemental
Sodium - 10gms elemental
Lasalocid - 300mg elemental
Calcium in MineralBoost is manufactured from high quality limestone. Combining this with the industry’s most stringent manufacturing and testing processes, ensures the outcome is a fine, high calcium supplement you can trust.
Calcium is essential to maximise milk production and supplementation is required to boost low calcium feed for optimum assimilation, improve reproduction, strengthen the cows’ immune system, counter the stress from cold weather and extreme activity (i.e. mating, calving) and enable 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 all year round. Rapidly growing young animals require sodium for new tissue formation and if sodium is deficient, appetite is suppressed.
MineralBoost Bovatec 20CC® contains the ionophore, Lasalocid to improve animal performance through a reduction in ketosis, bloat and increased milk solids. Bovatec 20CC® works by altering the population of micro-organisms in the rumen, increasing propionic acid and reducing methane. This increases the efficiency of feed conversion into milk.
The recommended dose rate is 200 grams/cow/day. If is not recommended to alter the does rates of MineralBoost products unless directed by a nutrition consultant.
MineralBoost should be stored off the ground and away from any moisture. It is recommended to reseal bags once opened.
MineralBoost is available in 25kg or 1 tonne bulk bags.
MineralBoost is available from your feed supplier or rural merchant.
MineralBoost only contains premium ingredients from highly reputable suppliers. Every batch of MineralBoost is independently tested for mineral content, dissolution profile and is fully traceable by batch number. This means every batch can be traced back to its raw ingredients, date of manufacture and independent laboratory results.
