MegaTrace Livestock Mineral Supplement
Concentrated Chelated Trace Mineral Supplement For Livestock
MegaTrace is a unique formulation of organically protected high quality sea-based minerals in a Chelated, bio-available liquid form that is easily assimilated and absorbed by livestock. MegaTrace is specially created for animals to help address mineral deficiencies, therefore maximizing growth potential and optimizing production and performance levels.
MegaTrace is an easy to administer, complete, balanced mineral package. It can be used in almost any sort of application (in feed, in water or drench) to ensure that any deficiencies are met and productivity is optimized before it ever gets lost.
What is bioavailability?
In short, this basically means that the minerals can be readily absorbed or taken-up by the animal, so they can be quickly utilized to address deficiencies and sustain output.
When do I need to administer MegaTrace?
Research has shown that smaller, regular dosages of minerals (eg. Adding to feed or water supply) is better than large spasmodic “megadoses” (drenches). The most important thing however, is that the animals have sufficient access to the minerals, in order to perform. Set times of the year when feed quality is poor or demands on the animal are increased – (calving, foaling, lambing etc) – dosage rates may need to be increased to correlate with the higher stress on the animals.
What are Chelates and why use them?
One of the most versatile and easily utilized form of minerals, Chelates are fast becoming the most popular and effective way of administering minerals to livestock. The way Chelates work to protect nutrients from being lost while allowing maximum absorption make them a truly economical choice.

Deficiency symptoms include: Cobalt deficiency can be observed by weight loss, lack of vitality, extremely pale skin in sheep, rough coat in cattle, increased number of “poor doers”.
Copper is one of the main promoters of production for weight gain, strength, fleece growth & quality, reproduction & skeletal strength. Deficiency symptoms include: (a) IN SHEEP – harsh steely wool, scouring, pale skin, infertility, (b) IN CATTLE rough coat, losS of condition, loss of natural colour in coat, eg; black coat will show a rusty appearance, red coat will show a yellow appearance, scouring and reduced growth weight.
Manganese is very important for fertility and reproduction. Deficiency symptoms include: The first signs of deficiency is abnormalities in young calves and lambs, also in decreased conception rates. IODINE: Iodine directly affects thyroid gland secretions which to a great extent control heart action, nerve response, rate of body growth and metabolism. Deficiency symptoms include: Premature and still born calves and lambs.
Liquid Kelp gives an immediate response and adds extra natural trace element minerals for the benefit of the animal. MAGNESIUM: Essential for normal skeletal development, is a constituent of bone and functions as an enzyme activator in the glycolic system.
