You can’t take the variability out of the seasons. Would weatherproofing your supplements help?
Cattle bred with modern genetics need high quality nutrition. Year on year changes in weather patterns make it hard to consistently produce a high quality product.
Whether you specialise in milk, wool or meat production, the requirement for optimum nutrition never goes away. Valuable animals need quality nutrition every day to perform at their best. The difference between the worst, the average and the top animals usually comes down to their diet.
Micro Elements have Macro Effects
Small things make the difference between mediocre and optimal performance. Some of the nutrients essential for cattle are not required by plants. To make sure grazing livestock have everything they need in their diet, supplementation is absolutely necessary.
Vitamins and minerals are mostly required in small amounts. Their presence in the diet is important. An observed trace nutrient deficiency can be rectified by nutritional management. Good management however, prevents deficiencies. Good supplements utilised strategically with good feeding makes good management more efficient.
Grazing beef cattle seem to be robust because of their large bodyweight. However, when they experience a severe nutrient deficiency, they quickly lose weight. Minor nutrient deficiencies are just as dangerous. A few of the problems beef cattle and cattle producers face are:
History and experience shows that continuous, long term supplementation of vitamins and minerals lifts beef cattle performance and business efficiency. Removing the variation in pasture nutrient quality helps cattle hold condition over lean times and rapidly respond and perform when good feed is available.
