Vetmec Mineral Mix – 4 Major Trace Elements
ESSENTIAL FOR GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT, HEALTH AND REPRODUCTION OF SHEEP AND GOATS.
Copper– Copper is important for the growth of bone and wool. As well as for pigmentation, nerve fibers and white blood cell function. Severe production loss can occur in deficient animals.
Cobalt – Cobalt is a precursor for Vitamin B12. B12 is important for metabolising energy and amino acids (protein). Signs of cobalt deficiency in livestock include ill thrift, poor production and anemia.
Iodine – Iodine deficiency is common throughout Australian soils. This can lead to goitre in lambs, therefore poor lamb survival rates. In addition to improving lambing percentage, preliminary data suggests that this form of iodine supplementation can also aid in reducing the prevalence of foot abscess in sheep.
Zinc – Zinc is an important component of a large number of enzymes. Especially ones involved in protein synthesis, immunity, as well as skin, hair and hoof health.
Trace elements are present in a special chelated form. Compared with other forms, chelates are highly soluble and more readily available to the animal.
