Usually the first sign that a farm soil is mineral-deficient is when the livestock or crops, that depend on that soil, show the symptoms of mineral deficiency. The causes of these symptoms are often mistaken as physical or environmental but the truth is that they are nearly always down to a mineral deficiency.
It is easy to forget the importance of soil. A farm is not the animals, livestock, crops or buildings…..it is the patch of land, the soil. What you grow and how well it grows depends on that patch of land. Farmers know that their soil is minerally-deficient because they see deficiency symptoms in their crops, in their livestock and in their pastures and they most often address these issues by applying minerals directly to the crop or animal in question.
We have created a Mineral Deficiency Symptoms chart (click here or below) to make it easier to understand the causes of the problems experienced on farm and to which minerals they relate. The Field Science dressings utilise these minerals to restore the deficiencies in the soil.
