Pre-Calving supplement to deliver minerals, trace elements and vitamins necessary for the cow and developing foetus
18 kg and 40 kg mineral block form
Shamrock Dairy Special Block is designed specifically for heifers and cows. The mineral block is high in minerals, trace elements and vitamins necessary for heifers and cows prior to calving to safeguard the calving event (calf and dam). Minimum feeding duration is 60 days prior to calving to build-up levels of micronutrients and can be given as a post-calver supplement all year round to balance deficiencies and promote performance.
Features and Benefits:
Contains a rumen buffer for improved digestive health and feed efficiency.
Seaweed is the unrivalled multi-supplement, which delivers a blend of natural nutrients that can be deficient from soils and feed. Seaweed contains over 60 minerals, and trace elements, vitamins, carbohydrates, amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural bioactive hormones, growth factors and anti-oxidants.
The ocean contains a constant reservoir of micronutrients that are absorbed by seaweed and stored within the algae in a protected, colloidal state. This colloidal structure means that > 98% of all the micronutrients are absorbed in the animal allowing them to fulfil their diverse range of functions.
