Agrimin Ltd is a specialist UK manufacturer and distributor of sustained release mineral, trace element and vitamin boluses for ruminants. The Company has been marketing this patent protected range of nutritional supplements to farm supply companies and veterinary surgeons in the UK and through a network of distributors overseas since 1978.
New products have been developed with the help of Glasgow University Veterinary School and Agrimin have established themselves as leaders in their field gaining a reputation for technically advanced products backed by a high quality service.
Agrimin specialise in sustained release nutritional boluses for cattle and sheep. A bolus is similar to a large vitamin tablet and it is given to the animal orally. It then becomes lodged in the stomach of the animal (this technology only applies to ruminants) and starts to dissolve over an extended period (in some cases for up to 12 months) giving the animal a consistent supply of nutrients.
For dairy cattle, dry cows and youngstock this technology offers considerable advantages over the more traditional means of supplementing animals with certain nutrients. Boluses are labour-saving devices and are becoming valuable management tools for forward thinking dairy farmers in a number of markets.
Agrimin boluses deliver a range of nutrients such as trace elements, vitamins and minerals. We have developed products specifically for some export markets and are now exporting these products to over 20 countries including most of Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
