Mineral tub has deficiency licked

DAIRY cow minerals in a lick tub for spring and summer grazing animals are now supplied by Agriwise as Bioplex Dairy Booster.

Agriwise claims the tubs incorporate proteinated minerals to balance nutrient intakes during grazing – particularly magnesium, sucrose, trace elements and vitamins – that make it suitable for turnout.

The company adds that these proteinated minerals are efficient supplements that correct chronic deficiencies and can improve somatic cell counts, clinical mastitis and fertility.

The tubs are claimed to contain Alltechs copper, zinc and selenium organic complexes and other essential nutrients.

A 20kg tub of the mineral lick costs £22 (01548-853855).
