Minerals & Supplements
Most livestock are fed a forage based ration. Whether it is fresh or conserved, the mineral content of such forages does not generally meet the animals’ minimum dietary requirements. Modern grassland management further depresses the availability of minerals and trace elements, therefore, feeding supplements is an essential practice to optimise the performance of your stock.
Carrs Billington understand the importance of proper, high quality supplementation, targeting specific issues on farm, as a result we have a selection of products to offer that work with various farming practices and methods, so you can be sure to find and option that suits you and your stock.
The Vitablox feed block range is packed with key nutrients including Sulphur, B vitamins, chelated zinc, and organic selenium. Containing locally sourced Scottish distillers’ dark grains as well as Carr’s Billington’s own rumen by-pass protein, AminoMax-M™ incorporating British rape.
The Vitamix mineral powder range helps to ensure all key micronutrients are supplied at the correct levels to maximise stock performance. Available as free-access (FA) or in-feed (IF) and packaged using at least 30% reclaimed plastic.
The Vitalyx mineral and feed bucket range is a cost-effective and time-efficient means of supplementing grazing and forages. Offered as free-access (FA) to livestock, Vitalyx provides a continuous nutrient supply 24/7 on a little and often basis.
