What Are Amino Acid Complexes?
Metal amino acid complexed minerals are absorbed more readily than inorganic trace minerals. Complexes are formed when trace minerals such as zinc, manganese and copper become bonded to a single amino acid. These amino acids serve to transport the minerals across the intestinal wall resulting in optimum absorption. Trace mineral uptake is vital to improve and maintain adequate trace mineral status.
Negative DCAD Formulated
Dry Cow 14% is formulated with a negative DCAD (dietary cation-anion difference). DCAD in the dry cow diet is known to help mobilize bone calcium and increase serum calcium. This is a fairly new approach to reducing the incidence of milk fever.
Provide free choice as a supplement to non-lactating dairy cattle at the rate of one block for each 10 to 15 head. Place in lot or pasture near areas frequented by livestock, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Cattle normally consume approximately 10 ounces per head daily. Consumption may vary depending on climate, grazing conditions, condition of livestock and/or availability of other feeds. In situations where climate and/or other factors result in consumption of less than 10 ounces per head daily, intake of supplement can be increased by providing additional blocks per pasture or lot. Provide access to fresh water at all times.
Limit salt intake to no more than 1 ounce per head daily.
