Can help a little maybe. If thye don't eat what you put out I would change. Not trying to sound smart but some mineral I put out my cows didn't eat it. I once had a pour calf crop and did not get many bred in the time I wanted. My vet told me to try some high phos mineral and I really think it worked. My preg rate was good and in the last two years with around 400 give or take a few I am running around a 92% up from an embarassing 60%. I don't know if I cn say the brand name but think of Utah and you can figure it out. Also one can guage by the health of his animals and what % he has to doctor. Also by days on feed to weaning or sale date.
