FesCool® Mineral: A Supplement Solution for Fescue Toxicity
FesCool® is a new, low-moisture block formulated—and research proven—to help improve performance in cattle grazing endophyte-infected tall fescue. Cattle fed FesCool® were able to improve blood circulation, a primary method of thermo-regulation, and increase feed intakes compared to the control groups. For more information about FesCool® and the research behind this innovative product, visit the FesCool® research page.
Provide free-choice as a supplement to cattle at a rate of one block for each 15 to 25 head. Place blocks in pen or pasture near areas frequented by cattle, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Cattle normally consume approximately 3/4 pound per head daily. Consumption may vary depending on climate, grazing conditions, condition of livestock and/or availablity of other feeds. In situations where climate and/or other factors result in consumption of less than 3/4 pound per head daily, intake of supplement can be increased slightly by providing additional blocks in each pen or pasture.
Provide access to fresh water and free-choice salt at all times.
CAUTION: Use as directed. Observe livestock and monitor intake daily.
