ITAU Animal Feeds Lick Supplements


Lick Supplements


The Itau Supplement Range supplies the ruminant with essential nutrients that might be in deficit on natural or planted pastures. We aim for better production, reproduction and therefore better profit margins.

At Itau Animal Feeds we strive towards creating a healthy rumen environment for the ideal microbes to multiply to increase digestibility and therefore let all ruminants function to their optimal genetic capabilities. A specific mineral and vitamin pack is added to all our products to address possible micro nutrient and vitamin shortages.

Special attention is given to phosphate inclusion throughout the year as this mineral plays such an important role and is always in deficit in South Africa, throughout the year.
