Both! All Riomax® formulas include a complete protein & mineral package. Think of it as a 2-in-1 product... there's no need to supplement any additional protein or mineral with Riomax®.
One thing to note is that we do protein just a little differently... through something called Indirect Supplementation Technology (IST) instead of using direct fed protein. IST helps cows to meet their protein requirements more efficiently and saves you money. CLICK HERE to learn more about it.

This is because of something in our tubs called ForageBalancer Technology. It allows cows to self-regulate on the tub... if the forage quality is good, they will self-regulate and consume less of the tub. If the forage is not so good, they will self-regulate and consume a little more of the tub.

All our formulas have the key ingredients to help you through all stages of the cow-calf lifecycle: breeding, weaning, wintering, and calving.

Our guaranteed consumption range is between 1/8 and 1/3 of a pound per head per day. If they consume outside of that range, you're backed up by our COSTGUARD90 Consumption Guarantee!
