Right Now Mineral
Agribrands Purina introduced Right Now Minerals, a line of minerals available to beef producers in 2008. It is a unique form of mineral that is nutritionally formulated and colour coded to correspond to the seasonal changes in our forages. The large particle size and water resistance result in a reduced losses and improved cow intake resulting in higher fertility and healthier calves. Beef producers are seeing firsthand the benefits of the Right Now program in their herds.
