Why not inorganic trace minerals?Inorganic trace minerals are unprotected and exposed to numerous antagonisms and interactions in the animals’ digestive tractThe mineral is often bound by these antagonisms,preventing absorption resulting in low digestibility(<10%)This results in typical overfeeding of inorganic trace minerals, spending more money than necessary.
Why organic trace minerals are betterOrganic trace minerals (OTM) are a more bioavailable source of mineral for the animalOTM molecules stay intact through a range of pHs effectively to deliver minerals to the intestinal receptorsitesOTMs can more easily overcome antagonisms in the diet because of their high bioavailability.
MINTREX® chelated trace minerals can optimize production
SummaryImprovements in somatic cell count and conception rates have been seen in dairy cows receiving MINTREX® at half commercial levels throughout lactations (Tables 1 & 2).A boost in immunity was observed in dairy cows who received MINTREX®.In a commercial beef herd a significant increase in percentage of heifers pregnant at the end of the breeding season was seen in heifers receiving MINTREX® in addition to inorganic trace minerals.
