The Missing Link – When it Comes to Mineral Licks

As most know, a mineral lick is a natural mineral deposit that deer and other animals are readily drawn to; they provide the essential minerals and nutrients that the animal needs for their overall wellness. Salt/mineral licks often occur naturally in an ecosystem, providing the sodium, iron, calcium, phosphorus and zinc that are all necessary when spring arrives to enhance bone, muscle, and more in deer and various other wildlife.

Animals will regularly visit mineral licks to consume all that’s available, instinctively knowing that they must supplement a poor diet with the nutrients and minerals that Mother Nature provides. In addition, the mineral licks are critical to the environment, itself. They offer diversity to the organisms that visit them and build up the habitat by providing good health.

However, even with all the studies that have – and are still – being done in regards to mineral licks, little is known about the actual dietary benefits they provide. There has been sufficient proof that mineral licks offer strong nutritional benefits to the animal, but there are many out there who will speak loudly when it comes to how well certain products on the market will substantially increase antler growth. And when it comes to claims such as these, it is important to separate fact from fiction.

What is fact, is that many studies have shown the mineral lick acts more like a multi-vitamin – providing that extra help to deer and other wildlife the same way a human multi-vitamin does.

In order for deer – and any other creature, in fact – to live up to its full potential, there is an additive that should be used in conjunction with the minerals and nutrients found in salt licks that will most definitely aid the digestive track and improve rumen function. That extra additive is yeast.

BioLogic, a leader in the industry of agricultural, wildlife and plant science, has worked on this specific issue for a long time. Beginning with their absolute dedication to managing white-tailed deer, BioLogic has made intensive research and managing deer herds, major priorities. By properly implementing a quality deer management program, they have worked diligently to create and produce the products that will not only keep a whitetail healthy, but will also allow the herds to reach their full potential.

The herd’s body weights and antler development are factors to be considered when it comes to the general wellness of a herd, but there is so much more. “Full Potential” is a product that is more than aptly named. In fact, it is the missing link when it comes to offering deer herds a full wellness program.

It’s all about the yeast. When the yeast is combined with that mineral lick multi-vitamin, the deer that’s receiving that good, healthy diet will now have the added ingredient that allows them to get the most out of the minerals and nutrients provided by the salt lick. Whether it be doe, buck or fawn, the yeast helps to improve rumen function; the nutrients are able to be better digested by the animal which improves their overall wellness. From allowing the doe to experience better milk production to increased body weights for fawn, buck and doe – this is the product that the whitetail realm has been needing for a long time

And…yes, with better digestion antler growth will increase, simply because the deer herd is finally getting what they need in order to reach their maximum potential.

(Now if only humans could find their missing link – everything would be solved!)
