Superior Bioavailability with MINTREX® in Breeders

Choosing a trace mineral source with superior bioavailability can help reduce production costs as well as promote sustainability and your flock’s performance. MINTREX® bis-chelated trace minerals from Novus International, Inc. provide a highly bioavailable source of trace minerals for breeders. The unique 2:1 chelate structure delivers superior quality over other mineral sources.

Novus developed the REDUCE AND REPLACE™ program for MINTREX® trace minerals to describe the concept that current trace mineral levels in rations can be reduced and then replaced with MINTREX® in significantly lower levels. This results in much more value for your investment.


Studies show that MINTREX® trace minerals support mineral deposition in the hen needed for optimized hatchability1 and egg production2. Due to proper nutrition, hens fed MINTREX® can produce 3 more eggs per hen over their lifetime compared to hens fed inorganic trace minerals2.
