4 main things cows need are protien, energy, phosphorous and calcium. <p>Other vitamins and minerals are important as well, but these 4 are the base and required in the greatest amounts.<p>Grains are usually high in energy and Phos, legume hays are high in protien and calcium.<p>Vitamin A,D shots help as well, but don't expect a good mineral or vitamins to take the place of good feed.<p>You'll need to analyse your feed on hand and see from there the best suppliment(s) to add.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada

It flat works.<br>
