Joint support in today's show pig and show steer is about the balance of strength and also mobility. Joint support strength is derived in very large part from the nutritional diets ability to balance calcium and phosphorus as well as supply said macro minerals in appropriate levels. Often times we will add supplemental oats or supplemental barley to a prepared complete feed. And, while that may well achieve our metabolic needs in terms of starches or protein modifications it now imbalances the calcium and phosphorus ratio and stresses the ligament/tendon growth. Additionally supplementing with any additional feedstock or simply reducing the total pounds offered to be less than the manufacturers recommendation dilutes the trace minerals so necessary for proper ligament and tendon strength. Royal Grand Frameworx and Marquee are two products that will help to re-fortify and rebalance. Frameworx and Marquee also will greatly enhance a feed program to super fortify the frame and connective tissue of the growing show pig and show steer. Both Frameworx and Marquee offer proteinated trace minerals for the highest absorption and assimilation. Zinc, Copper, Manganese and Cobalt are all in proteinate form. Additionally Frameworx and Marquee support joint soundness and mobility by adding Vitamin E (Alll Natural highly bio-available form) as well as Vitamin A and also higher levels of Vitamin D taking into account the show animal often is stalled indoors in climate controlled facilities for ideal health, hair and conditioning. Joint soundness in the showstock animal can also be enhanced with the supplementation of essential fatty acids in the form of milled flax seed and both Frameworx and Marquee also offer a generous amount of milled flax seed per serving. Frameworx is a dry flowable powder while Marquee is a crumbled pellet that delivers the nutrient package in a base of rice bran, flax, barley and soy hulls to help develop center body capacity and fill. The most critical time to feed these types of fortification powerhouses is in the early stages of receiving your show animals. But also whenever your changing gears with a growth promotant or simply asking more with energy/protein.
