Discover the value of organic trace minerals

Why not inorganic trace minerals?

  • Inorganic trace minerals are unprotected and exposed to numerous antagonisms and interactions in the animals’ digestive tract
  • The 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 better

  • Organic trace minerals (OTM) are a more bioavailable source of mineral for the animal
  • OTM molecules stay intact through a range of pHs effectively to deliver minerals to the intestinal receptorsites
  • OTMs can more easily overcome antagonisms in the diet because of their high bioavailability.

    Summary

  • Improvements 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.
