Important

Do not feed MAINSTAY to pre-calving cows, as it contains Calcium. It is recommended to feed BOLIFOR® Mag33 or BOLIFOR® MGP+ on its own during this time to ensure adequate magnesium supplementation during this crucial period. BEC Feed Solutions recommend magnesium supplement starts at least 3 weeks prior to calving.
