Multi-Min 90 Questions
« on: September 27, 2013, 08:06:40 AM »
How many folks are now using multi-min 90?  I searched the topic and found a few results, but thought that I'd start a new thread. 

If you are using it, when do you see as the most beneficial times?

Are there any stages when it is not recommended?

Can it be given a few hours after birth when processing the new calves?

Thanks for any thoughts.

We use it twice a year spring/fall on cows bulls everything.. I pretty much follow the label.  I try to give it to what baby calves I can catch. We even give it to show calves. We think it works... Or it make us feel better? I know on them black cows with the red tint behind the shoulders will go away? I do not think it is a cure all for a poor mineral program but it has its place. Hope this helps great topic!

We doctored a weaned calf this summer and I went ahead and gave him a mineral shot.....seems like it was a weird blue color. I got a bottle of it.
People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.

We use Multimin before the breeding season and just before calving and have had a great deal of success with it.  Our AI conception rates have improved and we also give it to our recips before setting them up.  Really helps when they are getting all of the trace minerals they need.  Works good on goats too to prevent White Muscle Disease.

I agree it is not a replacement for a good nutrition program.

We are pregging next week so I will know what kind of conception we have.  I made two changes this year and saw a big difference in return to heat time and condition.  1 was Multi Min and the other was Long Range wormer.  I will use it again next year pre-breeding when we go to pasture.  I don't see any need to use it in the fall right now.

We used it on calves and for some reason I think I was not as impressed as with BoSe.  I spent too many hours in the combine and the dusty baler to see straight or remember details. Didn't really think I would say the hay is too dry and dusty at 7 PM in Illinois on September 27.  We are very selenium deficient so we see a good response to BoSe on our calves in spite of the fact our cows do not run out of mineral.

I would ask your vet to be sure but I am not aware of a time not to use it.

We used it on our recips this spring, not sure if we had a difference in conception. I plan on using it on all of our planned recips this fall, next month, when we do our vaccinations and herd health checks. That way it has a good 30 days to be in the system before we put eggs in. We will see if I notice a difference.
Oh, and I am giving it to a cow we are flushing too.

Thanks for all of the replies. 

We've used it on a limited basis so far, but thinking of incorporating it more.

I've been using it for several years on my cowherd for AI/ET. I give it to them one month before breeding. I think it does improve heats and conception, but I can't say for certain but I will continue using it.

I also give it to calves that are weak at birth along with a B-complex shot.
