Anybody know a good natural mineral (I mean just minerals no other ingredients)to use? The person we had making up our feed formulas took out the minerals for some dumb reason, and now for the first time we are have problems with retained placenta.

When I grind feed I usually go to the co-op and ask for a bag of mineral, supplement,salt, and mollasses. They have always been very helpful.

Vigortone is also a complete and cost effective mineral product, <br>fed free choice the cattle consume 1-2 oz. per day and health<br>and breeding performance can be significantly increased. I know that <br>our herd performance and overall herd health has improved greatly, <br>compare cost when shoping for a mineral, some are real expensive <br>and others work just as well.

The previous message wasn't mine. My question is did anyone suffer an anaplasmosis outbreak this past fall? I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who was also feeding a medicated Vigortone mineral, as I was.

I am in the process of changing my mineral. In about 30 days I will put my cows with calves out on wheat. I have purchased vigortone 3490 I really don't know if this is the right mineral or not. I will be taking a soil sample but in the meantime I'm going to try 3490. Can anyone help tell me what they suggest.: Vigortone is also a complete and cost effective mineral product, <br>: : fed free choice the cattle consume 1-2 oz. per day and health<br>: : and breeding performance can be significantly increased. I know that <br>: : our herd performance and overall herd health has improved greatly, <br>: : compare cost when shoping for a mineral, some are real expensive <br>: : and others work just as well.<p><p>
