I received three different products from the Frank Lampley company; Vitamix, Lampley’s A-Z, and External Rub . I will be reviewing and breaking each product down so this will be a lengthy but educational review. I do not have cattle so therefore my review will be from a horse owners perspective.

First up is Frank Lampley’s Vitamix:
A concentrated blend of Vitamins A,E,C, Folic Acid, B Vitamins, Chelated Minerals and Electrolytes. Provides Direct Fed Microbials.
For cows & horses: Feed 1 scoop, (two ounce measure) per 1000 to 1200 lbs. body weight, up to 6 times daily at least 1 hour apart. Call for instructions to administer by top dressing or in TMR mix.
For calves: Feed 1 level TEASPOON twice daily in milk for all newborns (weighing an average of 100 lbs.). Measure according to body weight. If needed, give up to 4 additional doses per day between feedings at least 1 hour apart. Call for additional instructions. If they are on any kind of medication, call BEFORE starting them on Vitamix. (Stop all medications before starting Vitamix.)
Active Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Yeast, d-Calium Pantothenate, Choline Chloride, Niacin, Para Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA), Zinc proteinate, Potassium Amino Acid Complex, Copper proteinate, Calcium proteinate, Vitamin A, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), Amaferm, Inositol, Magnesium proteinate, Biotin, Iron proteinate, Vitamin E, Selenium, Pyridoxine HCL (B6), Riboflavin (B2), Manganese proteinate, Folic Acid, B12
Active Saccharomyces Cervisiae Yeast: The main reason horses are fed yeast is to increase vitamin B intake, and some believe yeast aids equine digestion.
d-Calium Pantothenate: What is D calcium pantothenate made from? Vitamin B5 is commercially available as D-pantothenic acid, as well as dexpanthenol and calcium pantothenate, which are chemicals made in the lab from D-pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid is frequently used in combination with other B vitamins in vitamin B complex formulations.
Choline serves among other things as building blocs of acetycholine, Lecithin, and Ceramides.
The list goes on of all the wonderful and very much needed supplements in Frank Lampley’s Vitamix; but, as it contains added copper DO NOT FEED TO SHEEP.
You may think that your animals are getting the vitamins and minerals required from their hay, feed, etc. I can assure you most likely they are not. You just have to add one scoop (appox 43g) per 1000lb animal. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to call them they are more than happy and willing to help with any questions or concerns. 1-800-327-0727

You can also use this to do a sweat (below the knee) What is a sweat you ask? Leg sweats are used to help injured legs, as the sweating compound will help reduce inflammation. Sweats also bring added heat to an area and are best used on older injuries.
If you have never performed a sweat on your horse, please do your research.
