MineralBoost Plus

MineralBoost is a rumen dispersible granule containing high quality calcium, magnesium, sodium and phosphorous. When added to an animal’s diet, MineralBoost will maximise production and liveweight gain whilst also safe guarding against metabolic disorders. The rumen dispersible granule is a patented delivery technology designed to exhibit the benefits of a granule during mixing and freight (less dust, less segregation, less waste),  while dispersing into fine powder once inside the rumen – providing a very convenient method of adding essential nutrients to an animal’s diet.

Technical Information

MineralBoost Plus is made up of Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and phosphorous. To understand the macro mineral levels available to the cow, MineralBoost is reported in elemental levels per 200gm dose rate, which is as follows

Calcium                   41gms elemental
Magnesium            12gms elemental
Sodium                   11gms elemental
Phosphorous:        5gms elemental

Calcium

Calcimate in MineralBoost is manufactured from high quality New Zealand limestone. The industry’s most stringent manufacturing and testing processes ensures the outcome is a fine, high calcium supplement you can trust.

Calcium maximises milk production post-calving, optimises assimilation, improves reproduction, strengthens the cow’s immune system, counters the stress from cold weather and extreme activity (i.e. mating, calving) and enables younger stock to reach their growth potential.

Magnesium

MineralBoost contains high quality magnesium sources from Australia. Magnesium is required for the production of hormones that are important for the absorption of calcium from the gut and the mobilisation of calcium from bones. Magnesium supplementation will reduce animal health problems and increase milk production. The magnesium requirement of the modern dairy cow has increased, partly due to increased use of nitrogen (N) and potassium (K) fertilisers and due to an increase in cow genetic merit. All cows are to some extent deficient in magnesium in late pregnancy. Cows cannot access magnesium stored in the body and
therefore it is best to be supplemented daily. 

Sodium

MineralBoost contains quality New Zealand sourced sodium. Dairy cows routinely expel sodium from the body in urine, faeces, saliva and milk which has to be replaced.

Sodium is an essential element for animals and may be one of the most cost-effective methods of increasing milk production. Research has proven supplementing with sodium can give a significant production response when the dietary level is low. Sodium in some form should be available all year round. Rapidly growing young animals require sodium for new tissue formation and if sodium is deficient, appetite is suppressed.

Phosphorous

MineralBoost Plus contains phosphorous, an essential mineral that is often overlooked Phosphorous deficiency may reduce growth, energy, bone development, blood formation and nutrient metabolism.

Packaging

MineralBoost is available in 25kg or 1 tonne bulk bags.

Stockists

MineralBoost is available from your feed supplier or rural merchant.

Quality Guarantee

MineralBoost only contains premium ingredients from highly reputable suppliers. Every batch of MineralBoost is independently tested for mineral content, dissolution profile and is fully traceable by batch number. This means every batch can be traced back to its raw ingredients, date of manufacture and independent laboratory results.
