Strengthen Cow Production with MINTREX®

MINTREX® chelated trace minerals are recognized in the feed industry as a source of highly bioavailable trace minerals. Feeding MINTREX to dairy cows has been shown to promote productivity, enhance herd health and optimize trace mineral status.

  • MINTREX trace minerals are produced by reacting two molecules of HMTBa, found in ALIMET®
  • feed supplement, with one molecule of a specific trace mineral (Cu, Mn or Zn).

  • The molecules form four coordinate covalent bonds with the trace mineral, forming a stable
  • molecule.

  • Because of its stability, the molecule remains intact through the wide range of challenges found in
  • the digestive tract.

  • The four bonds are what give MINTREX stability, which ensures superior bioavailability.
