Item Information

Beef cattle minerals in a cooked molasses tub that is designed to correct the mineral deficiencies of the available forage in a highly palatable, weather-resistant form. The Purina Wind and Rain Mineral Tub is designed for cow/calf and seedstock operators that need a free-choice mineral supplement to assure that their cattle are getting the proper levels and ratios of all of the 14 essential minerals cattle need for health, growth and reproduction. The Purina Wind and Rain Mineral Tub provides these benefits in a cooked molasses formula and is packaged in a non-returnable plastic tub. This gives the producer a mineral that is the ultimate in weather resistance, palatability and consistent consumption, all in its own mineral feeder.
Balanced Mineral Nutrition: Wind and Rain minerals contain the proper balance and ratios of all 14 essential cattle minerals. Matching the correct product for the cattleman's available forage assures cattle receive the mineral nutrition they need for health, growth and reproduction.
Consistent Consumption: Research tested and field proven, Wind and Rain minerals are formulated with high quality, coarse textured ingredients that helps assure proper palatability. That means cattle will consume what they need, when they need it.
Convenience and Safety: Wind and Rain Mineral Tubs conveniently come in their own mineral feeder, a non-returnable plastic tub. Since they are non-returnable, there is no risk from the spread of disease from one farm/ranch to another.
Provides optimum levels of trace minerals at a 4 to 8 ounce consumption rate: Supports fertility, immune function, and overall health.
Weather Resistant: Wind and Rain Mineral Tubs offer the ultimate in weather resistance. It is not affected by wind or rain.
Diamond V: Better palatability helps maintain consistent feed intake. Better feed digestibility helps make more nutrients available to the animal for absorption, performance, health and production.
Availa 4: Availa 4 aides in the improvement of reproductive performance for 1st and 2nd calf cows versus inorganic trace mineral sources. In addition Availa 4 aids the immune system of stressed cattle by rapidly replacing diminished trace mineral stores.

Feeding Directions:
1. Feed one tub per 25-30 head of cattle to ensure adequate intake.
2. Place tubs within 100 feet of where animals congregate (loafing, grazing, feeding and watering areas).
3. Feed tubs continuously along with plentiful sources of forage and fresh, clean water.
4. Cattle will consume approximately 1/4 to 1/2 pound of this supplement per head daily.
This tub provides a free-choice mineral delivery system that reduces producer costs associated with labor and equipment. This mineral supplement has the flexibility to provide partial to complete supplementation of minerals and vitamins, based upon animal requirements. This is achieved through proper management of tub intake which will range from 1/4 to 1/2 lb./head/day.

Purina Wind and Rain Mineral Tub, 125 lb. is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the ‘red tub’ you’re thinking of! This item didn’t look anything like this when we went to pick up. It’s in a small white bucket... a quarter of this size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consistent intake I like that the intake of the tub is consistent with the recommended intake on the label. My cows would not eat enough of the loose mineral. Now I know they are getting what they need.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Misleading picture of product The tub is great but the picture of the product is misrepresenting. The red tub which is pictured is actually a 225lb mineral tub which is what I was expecting to get. Instead I got a small tub yes it was 125lb. The smaller tub is cream and short... the red tub is the larger. The picture completely thrown me off and so I thought I was getting a deal but I’m reality I paid more for the smaller product. Also because it’s out of season they had to order 4 to get it sent to the store so of course I had to buy all 4 of them.

Does this product contain IGR "fly control"

Asked by: Aaron4477
Per Purina: If the Wind & Rain tub has fly control, it would also have listed ALT for Altosid. This particular one is not medicated with the Altosid.

This product can be left out in the pasture and won't be damaged?

Asked by: Bill52
Yes, this is designed to be fed in a pasture setting. Here are some usage tips: INTRODUCTORY PERIOD: During the first week of use, place tubs within 100 feet of the loafing and/or watering areas. As animals become accustomed to the presence of the tubs, some repositioning may be necessary. Move the tubs closer to increase consumption, further away to decrease consumption. DO NOT PROVIDE STARVED ANIMALS FREE ACCESS TO THIS SUPPLEMENT. Consumption rate depends on location of the tubs with respect to loafing, grazing, feeding and/or watering areas. Also consider animal condition, forage quality and quantity and seasonal weather condition. If over consumption occurs for more than two weeks despite tub repositioning, remove tubs and evaluate the overall feeding program.
