Mineral Block salt lick – 3 options (basic, basic plus, max)

Salt is an essential nutrient for animals consuming vegetable feeds (forage, silage, hay, straw, cereal grains) that contain insufficient amounts of sodium (Na) and chlorine (Cl). Both minerals are necessary to maintain the ionic balance of animal body fluids.

For dairy cows, salt intake from licks is a precondition for subsequent consumption of adequate amounts of forage, which enables to achieve the cow’s full milk production potential.

Animals consume the licks by licking them. To ensure salt intake is adequate for a given group of animals, licks should be available “at will”. This will not result in excessive salt intake that would be a threat to animal life or health. Once the sodium and chlorine needs are met, the animals will only lick the amount of salt that meets those needs.

Benefits of using a salt lick:

  • Supplements deficient essential minerals,
  • Supports the proper function of the animal nervous and immune systems,
  • Improves animal appetite,
  • Ensures proper conditions for animals to grow and reproduce,
  • Improves overall appearance of animals (better coat condition, normal growth).

Mineral Block Basic Plus

Mineral
content



Used as a supplement for sodium deficiency and in the feeding of animals kept in regions with copper and cobalt deficiencies. The Mineral Block Basic Plus lick is also recommended in situations where feed rations contain ingredients antagonistic to copper and cobalt, thus impeding the absorption of these nutrients from the gastrointestinal tract.
