Scotmin Nutrition, a Carr’s Group Business, has launched a new range of powdered livestock mineral supplements. It says the Megamins line of minerals has been scientifically developed over the last two years to be one of the UK’s most comprehensive ranges of dairy, beef and sheep nutritional supplements.

The company says its studying of forage results and compliance with new legislative requirements has resulted in one of the most contemporary off-the-shelf mineral product ranges available. It specifically meets the needs of ruminant livestock producers while avoiding unnecessary over- supplementation, which is both expensive and nutritionally superfluous.

Megamins products are formulated with the most bio-available raw materials to allow livestock to achieve their potential and maximise production efficiency. Selected products in the range also include Biosprint live yeast to further enhance animal performance. Scotmin says its trials in the UK show that the inclusion of Biosprint live yeast in ruminant diets improves feed conversion efficiency and profit margins.

The Megamins range includes specialist treatments such as a Rumen Buffer and a Biobind product. The minerals are designed to be fed through a TMR ration, top dressed onto forage or on a free access basis.
