Most farmers supplement their animals with various major and trace elements through many mechanisms. These supplements are designed to take the place of elements that are lacking in pasture, to ensure the animal is going to be in the best health possible during times of growth and reproduction. Mineral deficits results in challenges to these, like grass staggers and milk fever.
Vitus is a blend of five ingredients designed to assist with making available a full range of minerals in a bio-available form. Three of these ingredients originate from the ocean. All ingredients are blended and bagged in their natural state, exclusively at the Paeroa plant.
As calcium and magnesium ratios, along with other trace elements, are brought into balance through ad-lib selection by the animal, excessive availability of elements such as potash are alleviated and the animal will spend less energy trying to metabolise through the unbalanced energy. It therefore requires less grazing time to uptake it's energy requirements.
Vitus is totally safe to use on pregnant animals and it also reduces overall animal stress. It delivers better overall health, better production, shinier coats, decreased mortality, reduced incidence of scours, decreased incidence of mastitis and helps with detoxifying heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, etc. The overall health and wellbeing of animals is greatly improved. Clients also comment that calves born to cows that have had access to Vitus are born in good health and are quickly up on their feet and suckling.
Farmer clients, using the product in lick troughs, have been able to completely stop drenching and pasture dusting for metabolic disorders on their dairy farms. This is due to Vitus having a component of calcium and magnesium which also has a calming effect on animals as well – a welcome effect.
1. Diatomaceous Earth
(Clients that have started newly-arrived horses on Vitus have observed that within a short time these horses start expelling dead tape worms in their manure, even though they had been regularly drenched in their previous environment).
2. Ocean Elements
3. Solar Salt
(The salt attracts moisture which helps to keep the final product moist).
4. Kelp Meal
Vitus should be offered ad-lib for free choice by the animal. Place into bins and leave in the paddock. Rain will not affect Vitus as animals tend to drink the rainwater that collects on top of the Vitus in the bins.
Vitus can be added to pelletised food.
We are happy to send you your Vitus order via courier however if you want more than 1 bag, you may wish to use a different freighting service. Please contact us for this (otherwise order away!)
