Rational Nutrition product range of livestock mineral supplements has come about from years of experience in the field, consulting to various primary producers in areas such as wool production, beef production, equine breeding.
The products are designed to achieve maximum results whist maintaining the health and wellbeing of the animal.
Our biggest selling products include:
Our biggest selling livestock mineral supplement product, a very well balanced trace element block suitable for ALL animals of ALL ages. This 20kg block sells well in all states and territories of Australia as well as Sth Korea and Thailand. The block provides adequate micro minerals but, will not overcome actual deficiencies in macro minerals. Lick blocks are the ideal way of supplementing micro minerals to grazing livestock. Rule of thumb, 1 tonne of blocks last 1000 sheep or 100 head of cattle for 1 year.
Cal Guard + K
Cal Guard + K basically supplies necessary mineral, electrolyte (salts) and most vitamin requirements of horses regardless of what they are fed, what stage of growth they are at, or what type of work they are doing. Only the dose will vary
Cal Guard + K label shows exactly what the product contains, the levels recommended by the NRC and the percentage of those requirements supplied by the product.You will notice, in some cases the percentage provided is higher than in others. This is to allow for likely levels in what the horse is eating. For instance, oats has a Ca:P ratio of 1:4 where diet should contain 1.5 / 2:1. Thus Cal Guard + K contains more calcium than phosphorus. Other minerals are treated similarly.
An excellent powder product supplying macro and micro minerals to any type of grazing animal. Being a powder, stock can eat what they need so can assist in correcting mineral deficiencies. Generally, we recommend ad lib feeding, but, can be mixed in the feed if desired. When stock “go off” Nutri-Lifta then EconoMin can maintain block levels of the various minerals.
Feed in troughs “free choice”, the product weathers well. If it gets wet, it forms a crust and stock continue to lick it. In very wet conditions, if the trough is not under shelter then it will overflow and you will have valuable fertilizer. Costing mere cents per head per day, this product has been the mainstay of many graziers in Australia and abroad. This product is a great benefit before and after joining as well as before and after calving/lambing.
