Combating Fescue Toxicity

Apr 11, 2022

We are coming into cows going out on pasture. If you have fescue in your pasture, you need a true fescue mineral. Don’t be fooled by competitors who only sell fescue mineral that just lowers body temp! Kent and Hubbard have a fescue binder that binds the fescue toxin and removes from the cow so she gets breed.

Kent’s 365 product “is a free-choice, loose mineral supplement formulated for beef cattle grazing on tall fescue pasture or consuming tall fescue hay. It features a 2 to 1 calcium to phosphorus ratio is ideal for cattle on pasture, which tend to be deficient in phosphorus. It’s formulated to exceed NRC recommendations for trace minerals, helps overcome antagonists, and support optimal animal health and performance.”

Hubbard’s Stockmaster product “is highly fortified with trace minerals that are provided in biologically available forms and in a ratio appropriate for cattle consuming fescue forages. Copper and selenium deficiencies are often found in beef cattle grazing fescue. STOCKMASTER Fescue mineral contains the proper balance of copper, zinc, and selenium to meet these trace mineral deficiencies. STOCKMASTER Fescue Mineral contains 8.0% phosphorus to supplement phosphorus intake when fescue forages are being fed.”
