AgroMag® feed additive is a magnesium hydroxide product used to compensate for magnesium deficiency among farm animals, which is observed during periods of intensive growth, adverse seasons and of high physical activity.

During these periods, it is necessary to supplement the reserves of magnesium in animals.

AgroMag® is a milled brucite mineral with a high magnesium content compared to other magnesium minerals; therefore, it is widely used as a source of magnesium in the production of feed and premixes for cattle, pigs and laying hens.

The recommended product in this area is AgroMag® 600 powder.
