Minerals

Kent minerals provide proper levels of highly bioavailable sources of calcium, phosphorus, trace minerals, and vitamins.

Managing the brood cow’s mineral needs to match the stage of production and time of year is a key to optimizing the reproductive performance and longevity of the beef breeding herd. A quality year-round mineral program will enhance protein and energy nutrition as well as support the general and reproductive health of the cows.

Please contact a Kent Feeds representative for further recommendations.

Framework 365 Mineral® MG

Brood cows may experience tetany when grazing lush pasture or low-energy stalk fields and during periods of stress. Lush, cool season, spring grass and wheat pasture present the greatest threat for grass tetany. To help prevent grass tetany, offer Kent MG Mineral free-choice 3 to 4 weeks before cows are turned out on pasture and during the pre- and post-calving phase.

Winter tetany occurs when cows consume excess amounts of low-magnesium forage (stalks) with minimal amounts of grain. Offering Kent MG mineral and Kent EnergiLass Super Hi-Mag 12 or MG mineral and grain will help reduce the incidence of winter tetany.

Feeding Directions
Feed free-choice to beef cattle on pasture in covered mineral feeders. Locate feeders near water. Do not feed any other source of salt. Animals should consume approximately 3 to 4 ounces per head per day.

Feed MG Mineral on wheat pasture, during early or on regular pastures at times when magnesium may be deficient. In early spring, Framework 365 Mineral™ MG should be fed 3 to 4 weeks prior to time when cattle are first turned out on lush pasture or corn stalks.

WARNING: Do NOT feed to sheep.

Framework 365 Mineral® ADE

During lactation, the cow is providing nutrient-rich milk to a rapidly growing calf at the same time pasture quality begins to deteriorate because of grass maturity and dry late summer conditions. The result is a nutrient-deficient cow that may become thin and produce a weak calf next spring.

Kent ADE mineral provided free-choice along with Kent EnergiLass 20 or grain will aid the cow through this phase. A quality creep feeding program will also help by reducing the calf’s dependency on the cow’s milk.

Feeding Directions
Free-choice in a dry, clean bunk or mineral feeder or mix in rations as specified in the Kent feeding programs. The amount consumed will vary depending on the quality, type and quantity of feedstuffs available.
Specie Appx. Daily Consumption
Beef cattle & calves 3 – 4 oz
