Need to know information when choosing a mineral:
4% (phosphorus) – stocker level
7% (phosphorus) – level of mineral more suited for cows. (Remember to consider the amount of phosphorus already available to cattle through fertilizers.)
Altosid – a fly control that kills Horn Fly larva in manure; pest responsible for sucking the most blood from livestock
Tasco – prevents cattle from standing in ponds during summer months by expanding their blood vessels causing them to cool down.
Clarifly – eliminated face flies.
Face and back rubs – can be medicated to primarily reduce face flies. Generally placed around mineral feeders and feed bunks.
Fly tubs – contain a low mineral level. Cattle will eat more from a fly tub than a fly mineral.
Breed back – a keylated mineral that tightens the breeding season.
Fescue Buster – 7.5% phosphorus pasture mineral
Pasture Mineral – a higher level CTC 4000 gm
