What happens when animals don’t get Mineral supplements

The animal experiences decreased urine production as the body attempts to conserve trace elements like sodium and chloride. This also leads to loss of appetite and weight loss.
The animal’s ability to utilize nutrition from feed decreases, meaning that it takes more feed to meet nutritional needs if the animal is still eating.
Animals develop a craving for salt. You may even see them eating or licking things like wood, barn dirt, rocks, and places where they or other animals have urinated.
In this case, the animal is simply trying to meet needs for sodium and other minerals.
There is decrease in milk production and fermentation process in the rumen doesn’t happen properly.
For a lactating cow, salt must be given. Sodium helps control the blood’s pH levels, and chloride helps in digestion and keeps the blood acid levels balanced.
In conclusion, when cows do not get enough mineral supplements, they may suffer milk fever, weak bones, taking long to get on heat hence delay in reproduction and even deaths may occur. Farmers can avoid this by ensuring they feed at least 150 to 200 grams/per cow/ day of mineral supplement. VINEMILK LICK is one such mineral supplement.  It is enriched with protein, energy besides well balances Micro and macro nutrient they require for milk production, being healthy and reproduction.
