Right Now Minerals
Right Now Minerals
Right Now® minerals are formulated to allow you to match the mineral feeding program to the growing seasons, forage conditions and nutritional needs of your cattle. This program supports healthy weaning rates, heavier calves, and reduced feed costs.
Each color-coded product is a special formula, because beef cow nutrition is not a black-and-white issue. The four formulas meet the ever-changing health and breeding requirements of specific herds. We even balance our macro and trace minerals by region to supplement available forage at different times of the year. And with our color-coding, a quick glance in your mineral feeder tells you if you’re feeding the right formula.
Ask your Cargill Animal Nutrition consultant how Right Now Mineral can help. You’ll get answers that go far beyond black and white. Select a product name to learn more:
Cut losses with Superior All-Weather® Technology
With weatherized mineral, you can better manage intake and cut losses
Cargill’s innovative Superior All-Weather® Technology in our mineral formulas keeps mineral from clumping due to rain and humidity and prevents wind from blowing the mineral out of the feeder.
Cattle cannot get the full benefit of minerals when moisture from rain and humidity causes those minerals to clump or wind blows them out of the feeder. Cargill’s innovative Superior All-Weather Technology in mineral formulas like Right Now Mineral helps make sure that more of the mineral is available to beef cattle.
With weatherized mineral, costs from mineral loss and decreased productivity are reduced and intake is measured and managed more accurately. You can be sure that the mineral fed to your cattle actually does its job.
Compared to non-weatherized mineral products, using a Right Now Mineral product formulated with Superior All-Weather Technology is worth $120 to $180 per ton of mineral product fed due to direct costs from mineral loss. Superior All-Weather Technology also can help reduce indirect costs from losses in cattle productivity due to insufficient mineral consumption.
Better manage mineral intake
Most often, mineral intake is measured and managed through determining the amount of mineral that remains in the feeder, and lost mineral is often mistaken for intake. By using one of the Right Now Mineral products containing Superior All-Weather Technology, more mineral remains in the feeder and available to your cattle. This gives you a more accurate residual measurement for improved intake management. You can be sure that the mineral you feed actually goes into your cattle.
