New organic supplement launched
To celebrate Australian Organic Awareness Month Performance Feeds launched a new organic mineral supplement last month.
Certified by Australian Organic, OrganiPro® is an organic mineral supplement that contains agolin to help reduce methane in grazing cattle.
Performance Feeds national sales manager Peter Cush said he was excited to launch OrganiPro® onto the market.
“Organic producers should have access to an organic nutritional supplement that will boost profitability and production in their livestock and OrganiPro® is that supplement,” he said.
He said the loose-lick nutritional supplement was formulated to boost livestock production systems and contained key ingredients to achieve this.
“To promote frame growth in cattle, it is important to maintain their intake of phosphorous for energy metabolism,” he said.
OrganiPro® contains phosphorous, calcium and magnesium, critical macro minerals that will promote frame and bone growth.
Supporting the macro minerals are trace vitamins and minerals that will boost productivity and reproduction.
Keeping these vitamins and minerals in balance year-round will assist producers to achieve high results and a consistent line of breeding stock.
“Performance Feeds works to develop and implement nutritional products for producers that will increase their production and profitability,” Mr Cush said.
“OrganiPro® is another example of this. Tailored to organic producers, organic cattle can now benefit from a nutritional supplement that won’t compromise their organic status and will increase profitability for the producers.”
To optimise the rumen function and reduce methane output, agolin has been added to OrganiPro® as a key ingredient. Agolin will also improve feed efficiency and weight gain when supplemented to cattle.
OrganiPro® has been certified as a Certified Allowed Input by Australian Organic and can be used on properties certified to the National Standard for Organic and Biodynamic Produce standards.
Allowed inputs can be used by organic cattle producers as a supplementary tool to ensure producers are operating a balanced farm program.
Australian Organic Awareness Month is an opportunity to celebrate Australia’s organic producers and the technological developments that are allowing producers to achieve competitive results that will boost their profitability.
