Blueprint® West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse

Blueprint®

Blueprint® West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse has been specifically formulated for the western United States. It can be fed on a year-round basis as a free-choice mineral with a target intake of 4 ounces or ¼ pound per head per day. This is equivalent to 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.

Feeding Directions

Blueprint West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse is formulated to be fed to range or pasture cattle at approximately 4 ounces per head per day. If Blueprint West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse is offered free choice it should be introduced gradually over a 14 day period. Offer 2 to 4 ounces per head per day during this period to avoid over consumption.

Early lactation cows may desire more salt than that provided by Blueprint West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse. Please offer free choice loose salt along with the mineral to cows in early lactation.

Blueprint West 8 Cattle Mineral Coarse intakes will vary. Mineral consumption rates should be estimated on a monthly basis. If intakes are greater than 4 ounces per head per day more salt should be offered either free choice or mixed with the mineral. If intakes are less than 4 ounces per head per day the amount of salt offered should be decreased.

Provide fresh clean water at all times.

Supplemental mineral requirements of cattle vary by region, forage quality and season. Individual animal requirements may vary due to age, size, stage or growth or milk production. Please consult your Hubbard Feeds representative if you have questions about mineral supplementation.

Caution

This product, which contains added copper, should not be fed to sheep or related species that have a low tolerance to copper.
