Minerals

Agricultural Salt - CowThe Mineral range is specifically designed for New Zealand conditions to provide an essential source of trace minerals (Se, Co, Zn, I, Cu, Mg) with salt as a carrier. Mineralised salt products are a cost-effective, simple and successful way of providing additional minerals in the diet and maintaining healthy animals.

Salt- Common salt (sodium chloride) is an essential constituent of an animal’s diet.

Because many New Zealand pastures are deficient in sodium, some form of supplementation is often necessary.

The benefits of sodium supplementation have long been proven, most recently through a trial conducted near Rotorua by AgResearch in 1999-2000. Dairy cows supplemented with 35gm/day salt achieved an extra 12.8% in milk production. Milk yield responses occurred immediately and continued through the trial.

Sodium is routinely expelled from the body in milk, urine, faeces, sweat, and saliva. Sodium should be available to farm animals every day and because of this, salt is a convenient carrier of other minerals.

New Zealand dairy cows grazing pasture are most susceptible to deficiencies of cobalt, copper, iodine, and selenium.

Zinc supplementation is also important for immunity and hoof health.

Trace mineral deficiencies may induce problems such as abortions, retained placentas, mastitis, and infertility.
