Product Application

StressLic® supplement is specially formulated to enrich the diet of cattle subjected to stress due to weather, shipping, illness, or periods of high production. This unique supplement is second to none when compared to other low-moisture blocks. This block is the product of a state-of-the-art patented process that provides a unique 24-hour feeding system. StressLic® is an exceptionally dense block that will give you the most for your money.

Here’s how:

  • Economical: A low feeding rate of 0.5 to 1 lb per head daily can significantly minimize your feeding costs on a cost per head per day basis.
  • High Mineral Fortification: This supplement is Vitamin and Mineral fortified eliminating the need to feed additional free-choice minerals, resulting in a significant supplemental feed cost savings.
  • Weather Resistant: The “continuous flow” system creates a low-moisture, exceptionally dense block that maintains its integrity even in hot, humid weather or precipitation.
  • Minimal Labor: SmartLic® StressLic® is easy to feed. Simply place the block in areas of easy access to cattle.
  • Returnable Steel Barrels are economical and environmentally friendly and eliminate the expense of additional feeding equipment. Ask us about other available packaging options and packaging size options.

Based on 0.75 lb intake, StressLic® contains up to 200% of the NRC requirements for trace minerals, with 30% of the guaranteed manganese, copper and zinc provided in metal amino acid complex form that gives your cattle a special edge during times of high production or stress.

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.

Trace mineral status affect herd reproduction performance and health. Cows consuming balanced, highly bioavailable trace minerals are more likely to produce healthy calves that perform well at weaning. Animals most likely to benefit from complexed trace minerals include cattle experiencing weaning, shipping, adverse weather conditions, or dairy cattle in high production. StressLic® with complexed trace minerals is the perfect choice for these cattle.

Feeding directions for cattle supplements

Feeding Directions

Provide free choice as a supplement to pasture cattle or cattle in dry lot at the rate of one block for each 15 to 25 head. Place in lot or 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, StressLic® consumption may be increased slightly by providing additional blocks in each pasture or lot. Provide access to fresh water and free choice salt at all times.

For other SmartLic® feeding options for cattle on pasture, or when feeding stored forages, feed NE-12, NE-22, NE-30, Hi-Pro 40 or Pasture 40 depending on forage quality and required protein supplementation.

StressLic® Supplement contains metal amino acid complexes manufactured by ZinPro® Corporation and high levels of fortification for stressed cattle.
