Why choose Redmond?
Simple & Effective
Preferred by beef cattle
It is most common to offer free-ranging beef cattle free-choice access to minerals. When given the choice, they choose Redmond Premium Mineral Salt over any other salt or mineral offered which significantly reduces the intake of all the other products. Realizing their ability to seek what they need, it becomes very clear how powerful these natural Redmond products are and they usually become the bulk of the mineral program. This is often to the producer’s economic advantage as well.
Frequently asked questions
This is one of the most mineral rich sea deposits in the world. There are over 60 naturally occurring elements in these products in the perfect balance and proportion, so this is not just refined sodium chloride.
This is volcanic ash that fell into the sea water taking on those same properties. There are also over 60 naturally occurring elements in this, like the salt, but there is very little sodium and chloride. There are higher levels of all the other elements because of this.
Conditioner does not replace the salt because there is very little salt in the Conditioner. These two products are very complimentary to each other. Conditioner is volcanic ash. Having undergone the natural heat treatment, the minerals are very available. For example, Conditioner has 5% calcium whereas our salt has 0.05% calcium. Perhaps even of more import than the minerals is the fact that Conditioner binds toxins very well, cleaning up the digestive system so nutrients in the feed can be absorbed. In addition, it buffers the rumen and helps to utilize more of the free nitrogen that is prevalent in lush growing grass and other high protein situations. This is a 4 in 1 type of product that brings great results for an inexpensive price.
When given a choice, animals choose Redmond over any other salt or mineral program. Normally intake on any other mineral product is reduced significantly, especially if Redmond Conditioner is fed with the Redmond Salt. Depending on the soils and feed quality in the area, they may need a little extra of certain minerals. Leaving access to some kind of heavier mineral mix will show whether they need it or not. You can also use our products with added minerals like Selenium 90.
Yes. They will likely eat a lot less of the other minerals, however.
What they are saying about us
“Here at our feedlot, we use the Redmond Salt and the Redmond Conditioner all the way through from start to finish. We like what the Redmond Minerals do for the cattle. Our gains are good, but our yields are really great. In this business standard yields are 63 to 63.5%; we consistently get 64.5% or more all the time, and that increase is significant.”
“I had 87 fall heifers that had been on Kentucky 31 Fescue pasture that had been bred with bulls (no A.I.) and he had one open cow in all 87. In a second set of heifers, he had 1 open in 65. These cows get 25 lbs of alfalfa hay, but no grain or mineral except Redmond’s Selenium 90 with added vitamins A, D, E.”
“Redmond products have really been a blessing. I use Redmond #10 Fine Salt because we used to have lots of trouble with the toxicity and fevers that come during Fescue season. When we add 10 Fine into our ration, these problems never come. My animals’ body condition scores are the best he has ever had.”
“We have been using Redmond Salt and Condition for the past two years. We have found a noticeable difference in the health of our cattle. Our calves handle the weaning stresses much more readily without the sickness that used to plague us. In the winter the cows are more active and energetic since being supplemented with the Redmond salt and conditioner.”
