Minerals & Protein Tubs
In addition to quality grain and forage, your horses, cows, sheep, pigs, and goats may need additional supplementation of protein, vitamins, and minerals. At The Cheshire Horse, we carry an extensive selection of loose mineral supplements and protein tubs to make it easy to provide your livestock with quality nutrition which meets their dietary requirements. With options from trusted livestock feed mills including Kalmbach Feeds, Redmond Agriculture, Purina Mills, Natural Vet, and SweetPro, you can be assured you are giving your animals what they need.
Loose minerals can be served in a tub or top-dressed over your livestocks' daily grain rations. They provide bioavailable minerals, particularly salt, which your animal needs for bodily functions. Easy to feed and easy for your herd to ingest, they are popular among many livestock owners. If you own sheep, look for one specifically formulated without copper to avoid complications.
If you keep more than one livestock animal out on pasture, mineral and protein tubs are an easy and convenient way to ensure that your herd is getting the essential nutrients that they need to thrive. Simply place the block or tub in a central location and allow your livestock to choose the amount that they require. Full of vitamins and minerals in addition to essential amino acids, these licks allow your animals to self-regulate their diets depending on their individual needs and circumstances.
Please note: Due to the size and weight of these products, many may incur additional shipping charges. All online orders are also eligible for free in-store pickup at our Swanzey, NH, flagship location.
If you have any questions about integrating minerals and protein licks into your feed program or would like to set-up a complementary nutrition consultation, we invite you to reach out to a member of our knowledgeable sales staff.
