Nutritionally Formulated for Beef Cattle on Pasture, Feedlot Cattle and Lactating
Beef and Dairy Cattle
FirstLic® supplement is specially formulated to enrich the diet
of cattle subjected to stress due to weather, shipping, illness, or periods
of high production. This unique supplement is second to none when compared
to other low-moisture blocks. This block is the product of a state- of-the-art
patented process that provides a unique 24-hour feeding system. FirstLic® is
an exceptionally dense block that will give you the most for your money. Here’s
- Economical: A low feeding rate of 0.50 to 0.75 lbs/head/day means lower
feeding costs (on a per head per day basis).
- High Mineral Fortification: This
supplement is vitamin and mineral fortified eliminating the need for additional
free-choice minerals, resulting in a supplemental feed cost savings of 5¢ to
8¢ per head per day.
- Weather Resistant: The “continuous flow” system
creates a low-moisture, exceptionally dense block that maintains its integrity
even in hot, humid weather or precipitation.
- Minimal Labor: FirstLic™ is
easy to feed. Simply place the block in areas of easy access to cattle.
Steel Tubs are self contained supplement feeders that are environmentally
friendly and eliminate the expense of additional feeding equipment.
on 0.75 lb intake, FirstLic® contains up to
200% of the NRC requirements for trace minerals, with 30% of the guaranteed
manganese, copper and zinc provided in an organic form that gives your cattle
a special edge during times of high production or stress.
WHAT ARE AMINO ACID COMPLEXES?
Metal amino acid complexed minerals are absorbed more readily than inorganic
trace minerals. Complexes are formed when trace minerals such as zinc, manganese
and copper become bonded to a single amino acid. These amino acids serve
to transport the minerals across the intestinal wall resulting in optimum
absorption. Trace mineral uptake is vital to improve and maintain adequate
trace mineral status.
Trace mineral status affect herd reproduction performance and health. Cows
consuming balanced, highly bioavailable trace minerals are more likely to
produce healthy calves that perform well at weaning.
Animals most likely to benefit from complexed trace minerals include cattle
experiencing weaning, shipping, adverse weather conditions, or dairy cattle
in high production. FirstLic® with complexed trace
minerals is the perfect choice for these cattle.
