The average farm spend on minerals is between 1,000-3,000 euro per year. Minerals are essential for healthy growth, development, fertility and resistance to disease of your cattle. Both a deficiency and an excess of minerals can cause problems, and the fact that symptoms of deficiency often resemble symptoms of excess makes this a tricky issue. Insight into the mineral supply is therefore essential. Do you know what minerals your dairy cattle actually absorb from their rations?

Why participate

  • Optimize the use of minerals to bring balance between cost and return on investment.

What sampling is involved?

  • Bulk tank milk samples taken 2, 4 or 6 times per year depending on the specific farm context to determine the feeding status of the most important minerals.

How you get advised

  • GD provides you with clear results and recommendations per mineral: zinc, iodine, selenium, copper, phosphorus and molybdenum. These results steer your feeding and ration calculations, enabling you to find the right balance between investment and health.
