Mineral options

Postby Bird » Thu Oct 26, 2017 6:42 pm

Just wondering options in Eastern side of South Dakota there is for other options than Hubbard or Purina? Would like to find something out there that uses more vitamins, and less crude protein or whatever.

No Kent dealers out there? I used to use Kent ade winter months and switch back to aval 4 during Calving breeding.$ 5-6 cheaper a bag. Ive noticed less consumption issues just leaving Purina out year round. Took few years tho.

Most mineral contains very little "protein" and seldom has any guarantee for it. Excessive levels of vitamins are a waste of money and simply pass through the cow.
