Feeding a balanced, complete mineral package is important to meet the cow’s requirements of calcium, phosphorus and other vitamins and minerals to maintain herself while also producing milk for her calf still at side and her growing calf since rebreeding.
We have a variety of beef range minerals on hand and many others available.
Beef range mineral in 50# sacks include:
WW High-Plains custom mineral - Our most popular mineral is a 14.4% Calcium: 9% Phosphorus free-choice mineral ideal for year-round use in our area. It is very well fortified with trace minerals, including 3000 parts per million of Copper, which is chronically deficient across nearly all of Southeastern Colorado. Shortages of copper contribute to sub-par reproduction as well as causing immune system failure.
Zinc is also heavily supplemented in High-Plains 12-9. Like copper, zinc is critical to reproduction and the immune system, as well as being necessary in strengthening skin and hoofs, which can help prevent footrot.
With 300,000 units per pound, this mineral also contains plenty of Vitamin A for maintaining cows on dry grass, whether it’s winter grass or droughty summer grazing.
In addition, this mineral contains no added Selenium, since so much of the area is high in alkali and other high selenium soils, and there is no added Iron, which can tie up some of the most critical trace minerals, making them unavailable to the animal.
WW High-Plains custom mineral with INTEL - We also have this custom-made 14.4% Calcium: 9% Phosphorus mineral in a version with Intel, so it is in a hydroxy mineral for faster absorption. It’s especially popular during breeding season.
MasterGain mineral - This mineral is a palatable, weather-resistant, granular formula made by ADM. It is 14% Calcium: 12% Phosphorus.
AMPT-A charged mineral - This mineral uses the latest Advanced Mineral Performance Technology to ramp up your game. It is 13.8% Calcium: 6% Phosphorus made by ADM.
AMPT-T charged mineral - This mineral uses the latest Advanced Mineral Performance Technology plus natural-sourced Vitamin E, made by ADM. It is 12.75% Calcium, 7% Phosphorus.
