Beef Research School: Critical Phases of Mineral Requirements for Beef Cattle

Just as energy requirements change as a cow moves through pregnancy, calving and lactation, so to do mineral requirements. The same can be said for a growing calf or yearling — the bottom line is, if you’re tweaking a ration based on growth or energy requirements, the mineral type or level may need to change too.

In this Beef Research School, we build off of our last episode where Dr. John McKinnon highlights the necessity of mineral feeding, and talk specifics on changing mineral requirements as cattle move through the production cycle each year.
