Anmax Himalayan Rock Salt 25kg
New Zealand soils are deficient in Sodium Chloride (salt), Selenium and other trace elements that are extremely beneficial to livestock. Livestock like us humans require salt in their diet in order to carry out basic body functions and to be able to survive.
The further you get away from the coast the levels of salt in our soils diminish and especially once you get up into the hill and high country of New Zealand they are even lower or non existent
The rock salt that Anmax New Zealand sources directly out of the foot hills of the Himalayas in Northern Pakistan is some of the purest in the world and rich in 84 minerals and trace elements such as Iodine, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Selenium that have been naturally compressed into hard rock over 250 million years of immense geological pressure.
It is vital that we supplement our livestock with salt not only for the health of our animals but there are substantial benefits to the financial balance sheets of your farming operation.
For dry, hill and high country beef and sheep farming the average farm working expenses for animal health, weed and pest control, fertiliser and feed and grazing at 40-44% of the overall working expenses on the farm. By introducing salt into the diet we can improve better utilisation and decrease these budgets on farm.
Sodium is critical to maintain nerve impulses and deficiency affects every aspect of an animal’s performance. Growth, fertility and reproduction, and milk production decline when sodium is lacking in the diet. Without salt livestock simply don’t perform to their genetic potential.
The benefits of feeding Anmax Himalayan rock salt
Cattle and Sheep
By feeding Anmax livestock rock salt this will increase weight gain through increased appetite, with the inclusion of rock salt, feed conversion will increase reducing feeding costs. Cattle for instance require 35grams per day of salt to function with an average cost $7.15 to $8.13 per head per year making it a very economical option.
Just some of the direct benefits you will see from introducing Anmax rock salt into your farming operation.
