Mineral Optimisation

Trace minerals such as zinc, copper and manganese play an essential role in beef cattle development and metabolism. They support multiple essential functions in beef cattle’s physiology, including growth, immune competency and overall health.

How to recognise

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

The impact on the farmer

We encourage beef cattle rearers and nutritionists to provide a trace mineral source capable of consistently and cost effectively meeting the incremental needs of the animal. Continually delivering an optimised level of trace minerals is essential for maintaining a growing beef animal’s best performance and overall health and well-being.
