Dry Cow & Pre-Calver Minerals
The period of time from drying-off through the dry period, pre-calving period, and calving is a time of transition. The management, nutrition, and health practices implemented during this transition period will have a major effect on her productivity, fertility and health during the next lactation.
Poor fertility is often a result of insufficient attention to detail during the Dry Cow period.
Lactating Cow minerals are rich in Calcium. Dry Cow & Pre-Calver minerals are normally zero Calcium, and have a high level of Magnesium.
At DAIRY DIRECT we have a full and comprehensive range of Dry Cow minerals for your consideration. Dry Cow minerals require elevated levels of magnesium. High magnesium in a mineral (over approx 15%) can degrade levels of vitamin E. At DAIRY DIRECT we only use spray dried (protected) Vitamin E for all minerals with a magnesium content of 15% and above to ensure that your girls get the full requirement of vitamins and minerals, not only in their Dry Cow minerals, but in all their minerals.
Custom made or 'off the shelf, we’ve got the right mineral – at the right price.

“Buying my custom dairy mineral from DAIRY DIRECT has saved me money. Initially I did have concerns about changing to a supplier who saved me quite a few £/t but, here we are a few years on and the cows look great and are performing really well. There is a no fuss approach to ordering, I can even order by text if I want to. Laura my account manager is knowledgeable and helpful so, yes, I would definitely recommend DAIRY DIRECT.”
