Currently we are experiencing fast growing green pastures that are rich in protein and energy, but commonly deficient in essential minerals such as Calcium and Phosphorus. These deficiencies are inhibiting the ability of stock to reach maximal growth and weight gains, and not allowing stock to effectively utilise the energy and protein that is available. Therefore to achieve maximum production it is essential the most common deficiencies of phosphorus, calcium and sulphur are treated, as they form the essential building blocks for muscle growth and bone production. There are ways to maximise potential weight gains and profitability. This can be achieved by feeding a supplement with the correct level of mineral including phosphorous which will ensure your livestock reach maximum potential.
