CONTAINS 4 MAJOR TRACE ELEMENTS. THESE TRACE ELEMENTS ARE ALL ESSENTIAL FOR GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT, HEALTH AND REPRODUCTION IN SHEEP AND GOATS. VETMEC MINERAL MIX CONTAINS:
Copper– Copper is required for body, bone and wool growth, for pigmentation, for nerve fibres and white blood cell function. Severe production loss can occur in deficient animals.
Cobalt – Cobalt is required by the grazing animal for the synthesis of vitamin B 12. Vitamin B 12 is required by the animal to metabolise energy and amino acids (protein). Ill thrift, poor production and anaemia are seen in deficient animals.
Iodine – Iodine deficiency will cause goitre and poor lambing percentages due to deaths soon after birth. Iodine deficiency is common throughout Australian soils. Preliminary data is suggestive that this form of iodine supplementation can aid in reduction in the prevalence of foot abscess in sheep.
Zinc – Zinc is an important component of a large number of enzymes affecting protein synthesis, immunity and skin, hair and hoof health.
Each of these trace elements are in a special chelated form which are highly soluble and readily available to the animal compared with other forms of these trace elements. For a highly effective mineralised sheep drench, place your order online with us today.
