Knowing what Minerals your Cattle needs

Our team are dedicated to helping you manage the health of your cattle. At Terra NutriTECH, we believe that it is crucial to understand the supplement needs of your herd. Our automated mineral dosing system ensures that all your cattle get accurate levels of minerals at the stages they need it.

Firstly, the history of your herd’s health needs to be taken into consideration.  An analysis of calving, fertility, lameness, mastitis and cell-count are good places to begin. It is highly recommended to conduct Blood and Milk mineral profiles, examining the level of macro and micro-nutrients. This should be independently verified by the spectrometer in a lab.

Sample Mineral Testing

Liver Biopsies can also be performed by a qualified vet to establish current mineral levels. Minerals recommended being evaluated are Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Cobalt, Copper, Iodine Molybdenum, Selenium and Zinc.

Once there has been an accurate analysis of the cow’s health, we believe that you need to then focus on the feed profiles.  Drinking and foraging profiles allow you then prepare the rates of supplement and mineral requirements.

Our innovation will not be stopping here. We are developing new processes and technology based on our customer’s feedback to further help our clients reduce cost, have healthier animals and save more time.

Our OPIS Controllers will track and refill your minerals as needed, you do not have to do a thing. When your minerals are running low, our technology will alert us to replenish as so you never run out.
