Mineral Nutrition

Productive Nutrition provides consultancy services that are TOTALLY independent; we do not sell or endorse any products and we rigorously investigate mineral / trace element deficiencies such that the right formulation can be custom designed for your situation and time of year.

It is important to note that the main difference in products on the market is the price not the concentration of minerals.

We have been testing pastures, conserved forage and supplements for over 20 years across southern Australia and have an extensive database of nutritional analyses. Many of the mineral preparations available on the market fail to meet the requirements of livestock with severe deficiencies and often these deficiencies are difficult to accurately determine.

Many products are formulated and/or sold by so-called "nutritionists" who are really salespeople with little understanding of the complexities of mineral nutrition or their interactions. Feeding minerals in excess of requirements can effectively reduce the availability of other key nutrients and unfortunately diagnosis of deficiencies is not always straightforward.
