PRODUCT MAKE UP

Calcium

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.

Magnesium

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.

DCAD

Dietary Cation Anion Difference (DCAD) is a recognised equation to measure dietary imbalances to determine likelihood of hypocalcaemia post-calving. By balancing the dominant cations (i.e. Potassium) with anions such as sulphates, incidences of Milk Fever can be significantly reduced.
