Animate® Anionic Mineral
Animate nutritional specialty product is fed prepartum to support the health and performance of transition cows and may help reduce the incidence of hypocalcemia.
Readily consumed without significantly depressing prepartum dry matter intake, leading to higher postpartum dry matter intake and, ultimately, increased milk yield.
One of the most concentrated commercially manufactured anionic products on the market. When fed in a fully acidogenic prepartum diet (urine pH from 5.5 to 6.0), Animate feeding rates are typically half the rate of other anionic products. This allows for more ration space and easier diet formulation.
Uniquely formulated to provide effective levels of chloride and sulfur, plus other key nutrients such as magnesium and phosphorus, which are necessary for a proper negative DCAD diet formulation.
Our DQA® program is not just about testing ingredients. It is our promise to produce only the highest-quality products — from sourcing of raw materials and our manufacturing process to industry-leading expertise and technical support. It is this commitment to excellence that helps us ensure that our products are safe and effective for your animals.
