STOCKMASTER® Fescue-Max C2800 Mineral is designed to help cattle get the maximum benefit out of fescue pasture. It consists of a unique blend of ingredients including glucomannans and Tasco®.
Fescue toxicity has long been a problem for producers grazing tall fescue pastures that are endophyte infected. The endophyte is a fungus that doesn’t harm the plant but produces toxins harmful to livestock. Clinical signs of fescue toxicity can include increased body temperature, lower feed intake, rapid breathing, weight loss, lower milk production and lower pregnancy rates.
Regular consumption of glucomannans, part of the inner cell wall of yeast, have been shown to have a positive effect for cows grazing fescue pasture. In a study completed by the University of Kentucky, body condition score was increased (P<.05) and body temperature was decreased (P<.05) compared to cattle consuming no glucomannans.
Tasco is a seaweed plant found off the coast of Nova Scotia. It is known to be a good source of cytokinin, which is a plant growth regulator.
Chlortetracycline is included in STOCKMASTER® Fescue-Max C2800 Mineral at the rate of 2,800 grams per ton which will provide 350 mg per head per day.
Vitamin E is included at the rate of 1,000 IU per pound to support immune function.
Copper and selenium deficiencies are often found in beef cattle grazing fescue. STOCKMASTER Fescue-Max C2800 Mineral contains elevated levels of copper, zinc and selenium at the proper ratios to meet these trace mineral deficiencies.
Trace Mineral Supplementation
STOCKMASTER Fescue-Max C2800 Mineral is highly fortified with trace minerals that are provided in biologically available forms and in a ratio appropriate for cattle consuming fescue forages.
STOCKMASTER Fescue-Max C2800 Mineral contains 6.0% phosphorus to supplement phosphorus intake when fescue forages are being fed.
Hubbard uses the highest standards in choosing ingredients and manufacturing the STOCKMASTER minerals.
