Beef Range Minerals
Mineral supplements are fed to cattle grazing forage that meets their needs for energy and protein, but lack the balance of minerals essential for achieving desired levels of animal performance and health. An effective mineral program considers area specific problems, mineral history of the cattle, present nutrient requirements, quality of forage and water, as well as mineral formulation and intake. Ask your WestFeeds area specialist about a mineral program that will match your needs. Download our Beef Mineral Brochure.
Beef Range Proteins
Cattle need help to make good use of lower quality forages. Although late-season grasses, crop aftermath, or winter range can be good sources of energy, they are generally low in protein, and low in digestibility. Without supplemental protein, forage intake and cattle performance will decline. WestFeeds protein concentrates can increase the digestibility and intake of low quality forages and help improve cattle performance. Ask your WestFeeds area specialist to help you evaluate your forages and select a protein supplement that will match your needs.
Beef Range Creeps/Energy
Energy supplements are fed when the desired level of cattle performance exceeds what forage can provide. For best results, energy sources should be complimentary to forage digestion and delivered in ways that compliment grazing behavior. Ask your WestFeeds area specialist about calf creep feeds and range energy supplements designed to stretch forage resources and meet performance goals. Download our Creep Feed Brochure.
