Are magnesium supplements always needed in spring ?
Are magnesium supplements always needed in spring with young grass as feed source (when livestock are put out to graze or given green fodder)?
Young grass has lots of water, which speeds up transit, but has low sodium and potassium ratios, thus reducing magnesium absorption. As a result, magnesium and sodium supplements are strongly recommended.
