Min Mix® Minerals for Stocker Cattle

Min Mix Minerals are formulated for the cattleman that is serious about the getting the most gain possible from stocker cattle on grass. Min Mix Minerals will easily meet the nutrient requirements of the stocker animal and is especially designed for cattle on native or improved pasture. This mineral is formulated with the highest quality ingredients that are more available to the biological make-up of the animal. Particular care has been paid to achieving correct calcium to phosphorus ratio to compliment the pastures in this area. Consumption of 4 - 5 ounces per day can be expected. Min Mix Minerals are also extremely "weather - worthy" with a very high tolerance to moisture and can be fed in open mineral feeders.

Min Mix Minerals are available with Rumensin, Bovatec, or Chlortetracycline (CTC). Each of these drug ingredients will assist with increased weight gains. CTC will further assist in foot rot control and some low-level diseases including eye problems.

The trace mineral package used in Min Mix Minerals is unique to the industry in that it contains a combination of sequestered and chelated trace minerals as well as a combination of natural "ruminant bug builders." The bioavailability of the trace minerals is most important to the cattle producer. Dr. Jerry Spears, a nationally known beef cattle nutritionist from North Carolina University, is a leader in performing nutritional studies on the effect of different trace minerals in the ruminant diet and what effect it has on their reproductive system. In a study done by Dr. Spears on trace minerals he concluded "that the use of certain organic trace mineral complexes or chelates in ruminant diets has increased performance (growth and milk production), carcass quality and immune responses and decreased somatic cell counts in milk compared with animals fed inorganic forms of the mineral. Trace minerals sequestered as amino acid or polysaccharide complexes have the highest biological availability and also have a higher stability and solubility. These mineral forms also have a lack of interaction with vitamins and other ions and are effective at low levels." To our knowledge, our mineral products are the only ones on the market today that use the sequestered polysaccharide complexes.

The use of natural "ruminant bug builders" is also an important aspect of Min Mix Minerals. Getting the most digestibility out of the feed nutrients is essential to the success of a ranching operation. Our minerals use a yeast culture, a dried aspergillus meal fermentation soluble and six other dried fermentation solubles that allows the animal to get maximum digestion and availability out of native or improved pastures or quality feed ingredients. Ru-Min-Ade, which is another "natural ruminant bug builder," is also available to be added on a custom basis that will further enhance digestion of available feedstuffs.

Summary

Min Mix Minerals are a PROVEN PERFORMER that will allow your cattle to gain to their genetic ability. They contain a complete trace mineral package and "natural ruminant bug builders" that enhance digestion of all feedstuffs passing through the rumen. These trace minerals also help in the control of foot rot and aid in the prevention of eye problems.

The value of Min Mix Minerals for stocker cattle is beyond comparison when you compare "dollar value for dollar spent." Every ranch strives for better gains and we believe our mineral products will enable your ranch to achieve this goal.
