Rock salt provides sodium supplementation to cattle.

Pack Size: 25kg

Feeding Directions

  • Basic recommended allowance/cow/day is 0.4% Sodium/KgDM/day.
  • Dose cows at 40g/Salt per day to give 16g sodium.
  • Common salt may be added directly to the main water supply at the rate of 1g/litre of water.
  • Assuming the lactating cow will consume 30L/day she will gain 12g sodium /day which is sufficient for animals grazing low sodium mixed pastures.
  • Care should be taken in providing sodium supplements as excessive intakes can be toxic. An adequate water supply is essential.
  • Sodium supplementation should not be undertaken pre-calving without sound evidence of its necessity.
