- Economical: A low feeding rate of 1/2 to 1 lb per head daily can significantly minimize your feeding costs on a cost per head per day basis.

Dry Cow 16% LS is an important addition to the diet of non-lactating, pregnant dairy cattle. This supplement contains up to 200% of the new NRC nutrient requirements for trace minerals and is highly fortified with vitamins A, D and E. Some of the outstanding features of Dry Cow 16% LS include:
- Higher levels of vitamin E and selenium help reduce duration of mastitis and are known to help prevent mastitis and incidences of retained placentas as parturition nears.
- Calcium and phosphorus increase bone density and strength, especially during the latter part of gestation, when most mineral deposition occurs, as well as reducing the risk of milk fever in early lactation.
- No salt added, which helps prevent edema before parturition.
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 typically consume 3/4 pound 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 less than 3/4 lb 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.
