Mineral content of pasture is highly variable and largely dependent on geographical region, history of the land, surrounding oil and gas activity, grass species, and weather patterns. Both deficiencies and toxicities have negative consequences on cattle health, reproduction and when severe, can be life threatening. This presentation will discuss our preliminary results showing the mineral content of pasture in 9 different regions of the province, and how mineral levels change throughout the grazing season.
