ABOUT

Widely regarded as the highest quality molasses mineral tubs on the market, Megalix tubs are a popular and convenient method of providing bio-available minerals, trace elements and vitamins 24 hours a day.

The Megalix range of products are specially formulated to match a wide range of on-farm feeding systems and are an ideal way of supplementing livestock whilst reducing labour demands. Megalix products are fully weatherproof with no waste, meaning livestock eat every last drop. Available in 20Kg and 80Kg Tubs.

MAGNESIUM LICKS

Cattle require magnesium in order to prevent hypomagnesaemia (grass staggers). Magnesium uptake by the cow is often challenged through a combination of factors including low levels in spring grass, reduced availability by high levels of potassium, change in diet causing increased rate of passage through the gut, and reduced blood levels during periods of stress. Magnesium is a bitter tasting mineral not readily taken by animals, however when included in Megalix products, it is presented in a palatable form for optimum uptake, significantly reducing the risk of tetany. Combining the advantages of AGMA FG85 calcined Magnesite, Megalix high mag licks are market leaders as the most bio-available magnesium supplements.

The recognised supplement of magnesium for adult cattle during the risk periods is 30g per head per day, easily achievable through supplementing with MEGALIX Quattro Mag Cattle.
