Purina Accuration...any comments?

Postby Banjo » Sun Aug 06, 2017 9:52 am

Heard an interesting sales pitch about Purinas Accuration product recently. It comes in tubs or liquid tank. Only supposed to consume it in relation to how good or poor your grass or hay is. Its to help them maintain a good body score condition during poor quality grass or hay intake.
Has any body tried it or currently using it?

We fed something that was called accuration back in the 90s. Came in a meal form and was mixed with fish oil to self limit the cows. We had big rented feeders in every pasture and had someone deliver it. I really don't remember how the cows did, but we quit using it so i'm guessing the guys decided we didn't need it.

That was the original "Accuration". They still make it, it's a good product but usually pretty expensive but has a very high energy level and will put pounds on your cattle. They added the name "Accuration" to several other products now. Most all liquids and tubs are formulated to limit intake to a certain amount. The all will compliment your roughage. Talk to about anybody and they have good results with what they use....just about an equal number will cuss the stuff they used. Everybody has an opinion based on experience.

I bought one bag of purina mineral several years ago. It had two bolts and a link of conveyer chain it. I will never buy anything they sell ever. I sure it was very random, but it turned me off real fast.

I tried the fish meal accuration mixed with rolled corn and was not impressed. It's expensive and my feeder cattle sorted through it. After a week there would be all the meal in the bottom of the feeder and no corn. Maybe a fluke not sure but I didn't care for it.

From what I understand this is in a liquid or tub form and you put it out when feeding hay or grazing pasture at various stages of nutrition. If the hay or grass is great they won't consume much but if it isn't they will....to sort of fill up the gap and maintain body condition.
