The Maxcare® Natureblend mineral range for cattle and sheep has been formulated to meet the requirements of livestock in organic production systems, providing high quality, well-balanced nutritional solutions. Trouw Nutrition uses the latest research and up to date forage mineral analysis to formulate farm minerals, helping farmers to get the best performance out of their livestock.
MaxcareNatureblend Dry Cow is a specially formulated mineral to supplement the diets of dairy cows during the last six weeks of pregnancy. Low levels of calcium help to prepare the cow for the increased calcium demands at calving.
Trials have shown that organic forages have the same mineral deficiencies as forages grown under conventional systems, and in some cases worse. In particular, serious deficiencies in copper, zinc, iodine, selenium and magnesium have been found1. All raw materials used in the Maxcare Natureblend mineral range are approved by the Soil Association and can be used in organic production systems without derogation, where a need is justified.
