Megastart Product Range

Most livestock are fed a forage based ration. Whether it is fresh or conserved the mineral content of such forages does not generally meet the animals’ minimum dietary requirement. Modern grassland management further represses the availability of minerals and trace elements therefore feeding supplements is an important practice to achieve efficient productivity from livestock.

An innovative range of pre-lambing/pre-calving products, designed to improve natural defences and colostrum quality in the productive animal. MEGASTART incorporates a unique single strain yeast cell wall material, rich in mannan-oligosaccharides (MOS) that works by inhibiting the binding of pathogens to the gut wall, thus enhancing digestive efficiency and decreasing pathogen pressure.

Megastart products are packed full of vitamins, minerals and trace elements that give the productive animal all the key nutrients needed to produce healthy thriving offspring.
