MINTREX® Trace Minerals
With superior bioavailability and absorption, these organic trace minerals continue to stand out against other trace mineral sources.
The ‘M’ in MINTREX® Stands for “More”
More mineral uptake with less inclusion. Strong bones and tissue from organic trace minerals. Robust chicks through maternal nutrition. Methionine value that counts.
Organic zinc, copper, or manganese are linked with methionine source HMTBa, providing value beyond traditional minerals. How? The methionine value means lower overall amino acid supplementation. Better bioavailability means fewer minerals fed and lower overall mineral inclusion in the diet. These factors impact the labor at the farm or the feed mill. Fewer minerals, lower supplementation, less labor equal better production efficiency/more money in your wallet.
MINTREX® Trace Minerals for Broilers
Over the past decade, live broiler weight has continued to climb. That’s one reason why bone density and meat quality matter in broiler production. Fortunately, for nearly 20 years MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals have demonstrated its worth on broiler farms. These minerals have shown to:
- Improve feed conversion ratio by 2-3 points and body weight gain by 2%
- Support skin and footpad health
- Decrease incidents of wooden breast and white striping
- Increase antibody titer responses working alongside other health management systems
- Fewer condemnations attributed to bone breaks thanks to healthier bones, stronger skin and tissue
MINTREX® Trace Minerals for Breeders
Building the birds of tomorrow is no small feat. Broiler breeders need all the support they can get to ensure those chicks grow up big and strong. Through maternal feeding / epigenetics we know the hen’s diet has an impact on chick development. Broiler breeders fed MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals see:
- Improved laying rates and hatchability
- Better chick quality with improved bone strength and gut barrier function
- Improved pullet uniformity
- Improved livability up to 12%
MINTREX® Trace Minerals for Layers
Eggs are a wholesome, nutritious food enjoyed around the world. It takes a healthy and productive layer to make a good egg… and keep making them.
Layers fed MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals show:
- Improved laying rate with 2-5% more eggs produced
- Better eggshell strength and quality
- Fewer dirty eggs
- Lower mortality rates
MINTREX® Trace Minerals for Turkeys
Turkeys need powerful minerals to support their growth and health. MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals have been shown to help reduce breast blisters and carcass condemnations while the minerals help improve bone and foot pad structural integrity.
In trials, turkeys fed MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals:
- Saw an 8-point improvement in feed conversion ratio
- Show better responses to vaccines for coccidiosis, Newcastle disease and inflammatory bowel disease
MINTREX® Bis-Chelated Trace Minerals
Changing regulations. Shifting perceptions. New goals and objectives. For poultry businesses to succeed, producers need the right health and nutrition solutions. How do they get them? Through intelligent nutrition.
