What information about minerals is on a feed tag?
Summer is here, and beef cows are grazing pasture. The only item that cows with calves at side should require as supplementation is a mineral-and-vitamin supplement. Being an informed buyer means that the mineral supplemented contains what is needed to balance out the nutrients in high-forage diets. At times, it can be confusing how to determine the intake of specific vitamins and minerals from a supplement. A feed tag will give an indication of the amount that should be consumed daily on a per-cow basis
