AGMA FG85

(Calcined Magnesite)

AGMA FG85

(Calcined Magnesite)

Magnesium deficiency also known as hypomagnesaemia, causes grass tetany or staggers in cattle. It is a particular problem for beef and dairy cows grazing lush grass in the spring and autumn. As these animals cannot store Magnesium, it is critical that they are fed a daily supply.

Agma FG85 is a Spanish produced Calmag with proven high bio-availability to the ruminant. Early studies at Glasgow University demonstrated that particle size is the single biggest factor influencing magnesium availability from calcined magnesite. Agma FG85 contains a high proportion of fine material.

A more recent study in The Netherlands showed that Mg absorption from Spanish Agma FG85 was higher than a Chinese source of calcined magnesite.

Agma FG85 is supplied in bulk, IBC’s or 25kg bags.
