Right Now® Minerals
Right Now® minerals are formulated to allow you to match the mineral feeding program to the growing seasons, forage conditions and nutritional needs of your cattle. Our effective program helps improve weaning rates, produce heavier calves, and reduce overall feeding costs. And unlike many other mineral products, the nutrient formulations of Right Now® minerals are specific to different regions of the country, based on local forage analysis and cow-calf production systems.
Right Now® minerals meet the changing health and breeding nutrition requirements; provide macro and trace minerals to supplement seasonal, regionally available forage; and are color coded for ease of use. Select a product name to learn more:
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 Right Now® 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 Right Now® Mineral product 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 the Right Now® Mineral products 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.
