Increasing Reproductive Efficiency in Beef Heifers with MAAC

A trial has recently been conducted at a Novus International Research Farm in America with the objective of the study to evaluate reproductive development of beef heifers supplemented with MAAC chelated trace minerals provided at a reduced inclusion rate compared to heifers supplements with inorganic trace minerals.

The results identified that heifers supplemented with MAAC had significantly greater reproductive tract scores throughout the trial as well as showed higher blood concentration levels of progesterone. This showing a greater potential for heifers to reach puberty earlier. Heifers supplemented with MAAC had greater odds of cycling at the end of the study compared to heifers supplemented with inorganic trace minerals.

Here at Rural Supplements we work closely with Novus to implement these products into our production. We currently use MAAC in our molasses based products – Turbo Power, Multi Lik and Max Lik. The use of MAAC in these products has seen great fertility and calving rates for many of our clients.

2016 CQ Convoy

The 2016 CQ Convoy for kids took place on Father’s Day the 4th September. Rural Supplements had three of the trucks in the convoy with Swaggie, Jouster and the 401 with a special thank you to the drivers, Woody, Dally and Stu. Great to see Caitlyn, Mitchell and Hunter getting involved as well.dsc04815

The CQ Convoy for kids mission is to provide medical and other equipment that is not funded by the government, servicing our regional hospital’s pediatric and neonatal units and emergency departments with pediatric specific equipment. Also providing equipment to the smaller hospitals in the region where pediatric units have been closed down but still have seriously ill children attending for treatments.

Therefore a very worthwhile organisation to help out and a special shout out to all involved on such a great day!
