Cut Losses With All-Weather® Technology
With weatherized mineral, you can better manage intake and cut losses
Cargill’s innovative All-Weather® Technology in our mineral formulas keeps mineral from clumping due to rain and humidity, and prevents wind from blowing the mineral out of the feeder.
Cattle cannot get the full benefit of minerals when moisture from rain and humidity causes those minerals to clump or wind blows them out of the feeder. Cargill’s innovative All-Weather® Technology in mineral formulas like Nutrebeef® Mineral, Right Now® minerals and Cattle Grazers® Mineral helps make sure that more of the mineral is available to beef cattle.
With weatherized mineral, costs from mineral loss and decreased productivity are reduced and intake is measured and managed more accurately. You can be sure that the mineral fed to your cattle actually does its job.
Compared to non-weatherized mineral products, using a mineral formulated with All-Weather® Technology is worth $120 to $180 per ton of mineral product fed due to direct costs from mineral loss. All-Weather® Technology also can help reduce indirect costs from losses in cattle productivity due to insufficient mineral consumption.
Better manage mineral intake
Most often, mineral intake is measured and managed through determining the amount of mineral that remains in the feeder, and lost mineral is often mistaken for intake. By using one of Cargill’s minerals containing All-Weather® Technology, more mineral remains in the feeder and available to your cattle. This gives you a more accurate residual measurement for improved intake management. You can be sure that the mineral you feed actually goes into your cattle.
