The Millennium Dairy range of minerals uses organic selenium as the main source of selenium. American and Japanese systems have shown that sodium selenite whilst cheap, is very poorly absorbed by the cow. The selenium in organic sources is more available and virtually all absorbed.
This is why Lakeland-Scottish has followed the more cost effective and better value for money approach. “We’re not kidding our customers”.
LS Millennium Hi Magnesium * / ** (IF)
LS Millennium Hi Magnesium mineral is designed for feeding to suckler and dairy cows turned out to spring and autumn grass where it can be fed as part of a buffer feed. It features high levels of magnesium and Vitamin B12 (to overcome low forage cobalt). Also features a high level of organic selenium, which has a much better absorption than sodium selenite.
|(Not to be fed to sheep, or bulls or steers)|
LS Target Dairy (IF)
Also for grazing Suckler cows.
Successfully introduced in 1999 as a good all round straightforward dairy / suckler mineral.
|Dairy / Suckler Cows||100 – 150g (3½-5 oz) per day|
|Heifer Calves||50 – 75g (2-3 oz) per day|
|Yearling Heifers||75 – 100g (3-3½ oz) per day|
LS Millennium (Mainline) Youngstock (FA)
This mineral was introduced as a supplement for heifer replacements. Whilst not really designed for bulls and steers it would be perfectly safe for them up to 15 months.
Unlike many other minerals of this type we have maintained a high phosphorous levels in order to encourage an optimum growth skeleton or frame.
|2nd Year Growing Heifers||75-100g(3-3½oz)/day|
LS Grower Finisher (F/A)
This mineral was designed to keep life simple! It is good enough to supplement all classes of grower and finishing beef stock. (Okay it is not the mineral you should be choosing for heifer replacements (Mainline Youngstock is much better for this)); but it is exactly right for all cattle destined for the food chain. We have also double spiced this mineral in order to improve the palatability of the home mixed concentrated that are supplemented to these cattle.
|2nd Year Stores & Heifers||75-100g(3-3½oz)/day|
LS Barley Beef Feeder (IF)
A straightforward traditional beef finishing mineral.
