Any calorie, vitamin, or mineral deficits from your forage ration can be made up from limited ingredient feeds, commercial feeds, and supplements.
Commercial feeds already have a vitamin/mineral mix added to balance most forage rations. If you feed less then the recommended feeding rate, you will need to add a vitamin/mineral supplement to the ration.
Limited ingredient products do not have a vitamin/mineral mix added. You will need to add a vitamin/mineral mix to balance your forage ration when feeding these products.
