Small Package can Unlock Your Herd’s Potential
Some of the best things in life come in small packages, and this holds true when it comes to vitamin and mineral fortification in the dairy cow’s diet. Although vitamins and minerals only comprise a small amount of the daily dietary intake, the proper balance and bioavailability of these nutrients are critical in maintaining dairy herd health, reproductive efficiency, and milk production. Essential minerals and vitamins cannot be synthesized in the animal’s body and must be incorporated into the ration and/or made available as a free-choice supplement. Several variables, including dry matter intake fluctuation, feedstuff quality variations, mycotoxins, environmental stress, and water quality issues, can have significant effects on mineral interaction and availability, often triggering mineral imbalances. Dairy Solutions Dairy Mineral System from ADM Alliance Nutrition can meet your specific herd needs through a diverse portfolio of mineral products formulated to compliment any forage and commodity base. By providing the most bioavailable sources of macro and trace minerals, in the proper balance with optimal vitamin levels, these scientific formulas can enhance dairy herd performance and health.
