Diamond V XPC Yeast Use In Cattle Minerals From PurinaPosted: February 16, 2018 Posted by: Kent Ingram
In an effort to help our producers bring more, healthy calves to market, Ingram Feed & Seed is now keeping Purina Wind & Rain Storm Formula All Season 7.5 Complete Availa-4 Original XPC Cattle Mineral on hand. That is a terribly long name so we’ll just call it Availa-4 XPC mineral. This mineral could be very beneficial to your cow-calf operation this spring. We are teaming up two very strong non-antibiotic animal health boosters in this mineral. First let’s revisit Availa-4. This is a chelated mineral package from Zinpro that provides much higher availability of the key minerals Zinc, Manganese, Copper, and Cobalt. Zinpro Performance Minerals are the most bioavailable trace minerals on the market, which means more of the minerals are absorbed by the animal to deliver their full benefit. We have been utilizing Availa-4 mineral from pre-calving to rebreeding for many years. It offers improved colostrum quality, better calf health , shorter time for cows to return to estrus and just seems to improve animal health in operations that use it. IN ADDITION, this mineral carries Original Diamond V XPC yeast culture which also brings significant benefits to a calving operation. XPC can help improve forage digestion in the brood cows so that they get more value from every pound of feed you put out. XPC fed cattle have also been shown to have up to 16% more immunoglobulins in the colostrum. This leads to much higher success of passive transfer of immunity from the cow to the calf and further improves calf health. Finally, XPC fed cattle shed less E-Coli bacteria which helps reduce the exposure that your calves face daily. Trials have shown that the incidence of E-Coli shedding can be reduced by as much as 84% when feeding cattle with XPC!
We have visited with other Purina Dealers who have had producers using this mineral for several years now, and they have seen very good results. We are trying it on a trial basis and have brought in 6 ton of the product to get things going. We are in the midst of Purina’s Spring mineral promotion right now so you can save $30/Ton on minerals purchased in advance. We can also set this mineral up for a Mineral Trial and get you $80/Ton back with some record keeping of mineral consumption being required. Call or stop in today to find out more details.
