Description / QLF Springmag

QLF’s magnesium liquids use Magnesium Chloride which is the most bio available form of magnesium for the animal.  QLF Springmag has the highest sugar level of QLF’s magnesium products and hence offers the highest energy. Suitable for dairy and beef and sucklers, this product is a great way of supplementing magnesium where additional protein is not required. The product can be poured on, fed through a TMR or through QLF’s free access lick-feeders.

By combining Magnesium Chloride with sugar from molasses, Springmag brings with it the following advantages:

  • The sugars disguise the unpalatable taste of magnesium when supplementation is difficult, hence helping to maximise magnesium intake.
  • Grass staggers is known to be associated with energy deficiency. The sugar in Springmag provides extra energy to the animal.
  • Sugars increase the absorption of magnesium across the gut wall.
