Home/MegaLic/MineraLic Hi-Cal (US)

MineraLic Hi-Cal supplement is specially formulated to enrich the diet of cattle without the added cost of supplemental protein. This unique supplement is second to none when compared to other low-moisture blocks. This block is the product of a state-of-the-art patented process that provides a unique 24-hour feeding system. MineraLic Hi-Cal is an exceptionally dense block that will give you the most for your money.

Feeding Directions

Provide free choice as a supplement to pasture cattle at the rate of one block for each 10 to 20 head. Place blocks in each pasture near areas frequented by cattle, such as watering locations, shade or loafing areas. Cattle normally consume approximately 4 ounces per head daily. Consumption may vary depending on climate, grazing conditions, condition of cattle and/or availability of other feeds. In situations where climate and/or other factors result in consumption less than 4 ounces per head daily, MineraLic Hi-Cal consumption may be increased slightly by providing additional blocks in each pasture.

Provide access to fresh water and free-choice salt at all times.

For other MegaLic® feeding options for cattle on pasture, feed NR-30% depending on forage quality and required protein levels.

Vitamins & Minerals in MineraLic Hi-Cal

MineraLic Hi-Cal is fortified with high levels of mineral to ensure that the animal’s mineral needs are met. Below are some of the reasons why these minerals are necessary for optimum herd health and performance:

  • Copper is required for reproductive performance. A significant symptom of copper deficiency includes delayed or suppressed estrus, along with reduced growth rate, fragile bones and anemia.
  • Manganese is a necessary element of bone growth and skeletal development, as well as reproduction. Skeletal abnormalities such as weak bones and stiff joints are signs of deficiency, as well as poor reproductive performance and reduced conception rates in older cattle.
  • Zinc is essential in the function of numerous enzymes. It is also needed for normal development and functioning of the immune system. Research has also shown that zinc is a requirement of the reproductive system. Stiff joints, skin lesions, reduced testicular growth, delayed puberty and abnormal estrus may be signs of a zinc deficiency.
  • Selenium is necessary for tissue repair, normal function of the immune system, and reproductive performance. Selenium is interactive with vitamin E, and a diet low in vitamin E may require an increase in selenium supplementation. A common symptom of deficiency is white muscle disease in young cattle characterized by lameness, stiffness, or cardiac failure.
  • Vitamin A is required for growth, reproduction and maintenance; vitamin D affects calcium and phosphorus utilization and vitamin E helps to increase immune system function as well as interaction with the functions of selenium. Vitamin E plays a vital role in the prevention of mastitis.
A low feeding rate of 0.5 to 1 lb per head daily can significantly minimize your feeding costs on a cost per head per day basis.
