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
Dairy replacement heifers 3 – 4 oz

Each ounce of ADE Mineral provides 23,750 IU of Vitamin A; 6,250 IU of Vitamin D3; and 23.4 IU of Vitamin E.

Framework 365 Mineral® Black Premium Full Flush

Framework 365 Mineral® Black Premium Full Flush is a vitamin and mineral supplement designed to maximize reproductive success for beef cattle on pasture. Key ingredients like BoVantage®, Availa®4, DiaMune® Se, Kent® Natural Yeast and high levels of Vitamin A, D and E deliver premium nutrition for pre-calving and post-calving.

  • BoVantage® is a nutritional optimizer. It enhances and optimizes an animals nutrient absorption, immune protection and inflammation reduction. BoVantage® aids in reducing heat stress, helps to combat stress, stimulated dry matter intake and promotes a healthy rumen environment that will result in greater overall health and may increase the chance of conception of beef cattle on pasture.
  • Availa®4 is a nutritional feed ingredient for animals that contains a combination of organic zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt. These trace minerals are required by animals for a variety of functions including immunity, reproduction, growth, muscle development which will result in superior nutrition and also may increase chances of conception.
  • DiaMune® Se yeast culture is an all-natural feed ingredient containing the fermentation metabolites of yeast cells that also contain Selenomothionine from organic Selenium Yeast to help support animal health and reproductive performance. DiaMune® Se is very easily metabolized by the animal, enhances reproductive performance and placental clean-out and stimulates diet digestion and rumen health resulting in increased chance of conception, greater efficiency of feedstuff use and the overall health of your beef cattle on pasture.
  • Kent® Natural Yeast (KNY) is a quality source of brewers yeast, manufactured without artificial additives or ingredients for beef. Our KNY contains a nourishing combination of proprietary proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, blended and processed to enhance quality, efficacy and nutritional profile. The advantage of using KNY is that it is highly palatable, has biologically available vitamins and minerals, a natural source of selenium, may function as a prebiotic and its research-tested and commercially proven resulting in greater overall health and may improve the chances of conception in your beef cattle on pasture.
  • Vitamins A, D and E are essential nutrients for beef cattle on pasture. In terms of function, vitamin A is important for reproduction and immune function, while vitamin D plays a critical role in calcium and phosphorus metabolism and bone growth. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that interacts with selenium to provide protection to cells and tissues and is involved with immune function. In addition, high levels of these vitamins decrease days to first estrus and tightens the calving interval. The results are improved overall health of your beef cattle on pasture and reduced non-productive days.
