Feed for sheep and goats

Feed for sheep and goats

Generally, the potassium requirement of sheep and goats is met by their basic roughage feed.

 

However, there may be a deficiency of magnesium, as the magnesium content of farm-grown basic feed may vary strongly, depending on origin and plant composition. Particularly in young, non-variegated grass pastures, the magnesium content may be very low. Specifically gestating and lactating sheep and goats, as well as dairy animals may develop magnesium deficiency after being fed potassium-rich basic feed.

 

The magnesium-rich KaSa Mag98® may therefore be used as a high-grade magnesium component in the feeding of breeding and dairy animals. KaSa Mag98® contains sulphatic magnesium, which is more easily absorbed than magnesium oxide (MgO) and, in comparison to magnesium chloride (MgCl2), represents less risk of cauterising stomach and intestinal mucosa.
