Masterfeeds RiteMins Calving Beef Mineral is primarily intended for feeding to beef cows in late gestation and during lactation when mineral and vitamin requirements are highest, and there is a requirement for supplemental magnesium. Provide Masterfeeds RiteMins Calving Beef Mineral free choice, or as part of a nutritionally balanced feeding program, to achieve an average intake of 15 grams per 100 kg body weight per day (e.g. 75 grams per head per day for a 500 kg cow).

Who Uses: Masterfeeds RiteMins Calving Beef Mineral is primarily intended for free choice feeding to beef cows in late gestation, and during lactation, when mineral and vitamin requirements are highest, and there is a need for supplemental magnesium, usually due to low magnesium and/or high potassium levels in the forage.

* Additional calcium may be required if cattle are on a grain based diet such as green feed or cereal silage. Consult your Masterfeeds Nutritionist regarding the suitability of this mineral for these situations.
** The level of magnesium in this mineral is insufficient alone to prevent hypomagnesaemia. Consult your Masterfeeds Nutritionist regarding the suitability of this mineral if you are feeding very low magnesium or very high potassium feeds.
