Blueprint® West 12 Calving Mineral Coarse


Blueprint® West 12 Calving Mineral Coarse has been specifically formulated for the western United States. It can be fed as a free-choice mineral starting approximately 30 to 45 days before calving until 30 to 45 days after calving with a target intake of 4 ounces or ¼ pound per head per day. This is equivalent to 1.75 pounds per cow per week (7 pounds per cow per month) or 200 feedings per 50-pound bag. Blueprint can also be fed in a total mixed ration. 

About the Product

Blueprint is a cutting-edge trace mineral nutrition program formulated to positively influence the genetic potential of cattle through all phases of production. Blueprint supports enhanced beef cow-calf reproduction, immunity and improved calf weaning weights.

Blueprint nutrition is based on the belief that not only is the level of supplementation important, but also the form in which nutrients are delivered to the animal. The Blueprint products are a source of Bioplex® trace minerals (cobalt, copper, manganese, zinc), Sel-Plex® selenium yeast and vitamins. Blueprint organic trace mineral protienates resemble those found naturally in plant proteins. This means increased availability with less interference by antagonists and less oxidative stress, which in turn improves performance.
