A specially formulated mineral for camelids.
Camels require minerals and trace elements for optimum performance and health. Providing a daily mineral supplement such as Vital Ngamia will maintain homeostasis and immune system function, ensuring the animal remains in good health. It will also enable optimum milk production by providing the essential calcium and phosphorus needed to support lactation. Minerals also help to increase fertility by optimising heat expression and conception rates. Without minerals, animals are unable to perform to their full genetic potential.
Often camels do not show clinical signs of mineral deficiencies until they are severe; however, deficiencies can have effects on many different bodily functions long before this. Mineral deficient animals will have a depressed immune system, meaning they are more susceptible to illness. Mineral deficiencies can also cause an increase in lameness and a stiff gait; this is especially common in calcium deficient animals. Fertility also suffers when minerals are not provided at sufficient levels; for example, low levels of selenium in the diet will compromise reproductive efficiency. Vital Ngamia provides all the minerals that camels need for optimum health and productivity. The product is carefully formulated and provides an excellent supply of all essential minerals and trace elements. It has been developed especially for Kenyan conditions and is produced from high quality ingredients at or above the levels required for 100% of a 700kg animal’s daily requirements. Vital Ngamia should be used at a rate of 50-100g per head per day depending on animal size.
Nutrition is one of the most critical elements in farming today. Farmers using improved genetics require better nutrition to achieve the full genetic potential in milk yield or growth potential.
