In this article, Why Cattle Minerals are So Important, we talk about some critical facts on cattle nutrition and how it can improve your overall cattle investment – from weight gain to reproduction. For example, “Breeding animals not fed properly during these stages of production can be expected to exhibit low birth-weight calves, poor conception rates, greater calf death loss, longer intervals between calving and re-breeding, and depressed weaning weights of calves. “Maintaining an acceptable body condition score throughout the year will help to minimize these losses.”
