Mineral Optimization

Trace minerals like zinc, copper, and manganese play an essential role in beef cattle’s development and metabolism. They support multiple essential functions in a supplemented finishing beef cattle’s physiology, including growth, immune response, and overall health.

How to recognize

Providing trace minerals in the wrong form and amount - either too low or too high - can negatively impact animal productivity. The impact can be seen in lower body weights, reduced feed intake, decreased feed cost efficiency and potentially, increased mortality.

The impact on the farmer

We encourage feedlot managers, cattle feeders, and nutritionists to work together to provide a highly bioavailable trace mineral source, capable of consistently and cost-effectively meeting the incremental needs of the animal. Continually delivering an optimized level of trace minerals is essential for maintaining finishing beef’s best performance, health, and well-being.

IntelliBond - the importance of trace minerals

Trace minerals support an array of biological functions that are required for proper immune function, reproduction, and growth. Trace minerals are present in forages and other feeds used in cattle diets and, with the exception of cobalt, meet the requirements of rumen microbes. However, supplementation is needed to meet the requirements of the animal.
