NE-Mag 12 and NE-Mag 22 offer the benefit of extra magnesium in highly palatable supplement that cattle will readily consume. These supplements contain a minimum of 2% magnesium. Magnesium is needed for activation of enzymes, nerve transmission, skeletal tissue, bone formation and milk production.
NE-Mag 12 and NE-Mag 22 may be fed in two stages, according to the level of protein needed to enhance the diet.
- Step 1: NE-Mag 12 is a high energy supplement that should be fed during the early growth period of high quality pasture forages such as alfalfa, legumes, orchard, or brome grass to cows, calves, bulls and stocker cattle.
- Step 2: NE-Mag 22 contains additional protein for lower protein pastures or when additional protein is required.
Provide free choice as a supplement to pasture cattle at the rate of one block for each 15 to 25 head. Place in pasture near areas frequented by livestock, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Cattle typically consume 0.75 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 0.75 pound per head daily, intake of supplement can be increased by providing additional blocks per pasture.
Provide access to fresh water and free-choice salt at all times.
If cattle experience excessive stress such as adverse weather conditions, shipping, weaning, or periods of high production, switching to SmartLic® StressLic® Supplement is recommended.
