Magnesium is an essential nutrient for all animals. Mild deficiencies can result in reduced feed intake, poor diet digestion, and bone abnormalities. More severe deficiencies can cause a serious metabolic disorder known as “Grass Tetany.”
Protein frequently is the most limiting nutrient for cattle wintered on poor to moderate quality harvested forages as well as for mature cows and growing cattle grazing dormant grass pastures and crop residues.
SmartLic® research has demonstrated that supplementation with SmartLic blocks can effectively improve forage intake and cattle performance.
Goat Nutrition & Feeding
Goats are ruminants and thus have a digestive system that includes a complex four-compartment stomach. This type of digestive system enables goats to utilize a wide variety of feedstuffs including grains, protein supplements, hay, silage, pasture, browse and non-protein nitrogen sources such as urea.
