  • APPLICATION

    The recommended dose rate is usually 150 grams per cow per day, regardless of the proportion of the diet that consists of supplements.

  • COMPATIBILITY

    • DO NOT FEED TO PREGNANT COWS DURING THE LAST 1-2 MONTHS OF PREGNANCY except under veterinary advice.
    • Maize Triple Mix should not be added to the silage at the time of laying the stack down unless it is going to be fed only to lactating cows
    • Maize Triple Mix is designed to supplement the minerals (calcium, magnesium and sodium) that are in low amounts in maize silage. Sometimes during periods of high demand, the calcium and/or magnesium levels in this product may not be sufficient to supply the cows' total minerals requirements. In these cases additional calcium (eg Lime Flour) and/or magnesium (eg Magnesium Oxide Fine) may be supplemented.
    • It is not soluble in water so cannot be administered through the drinking water.

  • PACKAGING

    • Paper bag.
    • Pallet of 40 x 25kg bags.

  • STORAGE

    Store in a cool, dry covered facility, and ensure that the bag is closed properly after use. The salt component can absorb moisture from the atmosphere if bags are left open. Maize Triple Mix™ is dusty, so dust masks and eye protection are recommended when excessive dust is present.
