The individual trace mineral status of an animal can be a rate limiting factor determining animal performance. If trace mineral levels are less optimal, production may suffer with processes such as growth, reproduction and immune defence not functioning to their capacity.
Optimising trace mineral and vitamin B12 levels by using feed or oral supplements may not be successful as there is variation in individual intake, low absorption from the digestive system and competition with other dietary components. This can limit the success of a supplementation program. Using injectable mineral supplementation can avoid these variables by being rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream and made readily available to support optimal health and production. Minerals not immediately required are stored in the liver and mobilised as required.
Managing trace mineral levels to ensure there is adequate supply, especially during high demand periods, is an important part of maximising production potential and managing animal health.
Marks-Min provides elements that support growth by aiding bone, joint and muscle development and function (Copper (Cu), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Selenium (Se)) and energy metabolism (Vitamin B12)
Marks-Min provides elements that support reproduction by aiding the development of male and female reproductive systems, the process of fertilization and also the maintenance of pregnancy (Cu, Mn, Zn, Se)
Marks-Min provides elements that support immune defence by aiding function of the immune system and white blood cells that help resist establishment of infection
Vitamin B12 plays a key role for the production of energy in livestock. Energy is required for all body processes and it is the backbone of all production
