What it does
Supplementation of these essential minerals is usually carried out with the addition to the feed of Inorganic Mineral Salts in the form of chlorides, sulfates, nitrates, phosphates and carbonates.
However, the absorption of Inorganic Minerals in the bods of a horse is very low, and excessive amounts of minerals are fed to the horse. These unabsorbed minerals pass out of the horse in faeces and urine. The greater percentage of the administrated minerals and your hard earned money are wasted.
Now with the introduction of Mighty-Min Horse mixture it is possible to solve the problems presented when a horse is given essential trace minerals by the conventional use of Inorganic Minerals.
The Organic Minerals presented in Mighty-Min Horse mixture as Organically Stabilised Minerals may be highly absorbed in a living body such as the horse, a relativity small amount of Organically Stabilised Minerals when included in your horse’s feed stuff once a week, fulfills the metabolic requirements of Trace Elements.
Essential Trace Minerals provided by the Mighty-Min Horse mixture are stored in various organs (including the liver) of the horse thus creating a valuable reserve which the horse can draw upon as and when the need arises.
Where and when to use it
With your horse’s feed.
How often to use it
Once a week
This preparation contains both Selenium and Copper, both capable of toxic effects.
RECOMMENDED DOSES MUST BE ADHERED TO.
DO NOT administer at the same time with other preparations that contain Selenium.
DO NOT administer if grazing pasture plants are known to have a high Copper content.
Ensure animals have access to water.
Avoid stress to young or weak animals.
Check drenching gun for accuracy before & during use. Ensure drenching nozzle smoothness.
