Smart minerals, smart nutrition, smart decision

Trace minerals support biological functions that are required for proper immune function, reproduction, and growth. They are present in forages and other feeds used in cattle, but supplementation is often needed to meet the needs of the animal. Stability and thus the availability of the trace mineral source differs a lot. Traditionally, minerals have been categorized as either organic or inorganic, but a newly defined category of trace minerals, known as hydroxy trace minerals. 

Selko® IntelliBond® is the first line of hydroxy trace minerals for use in animal feeds IntelliBond is proven to be an effective source of copper, zinc, and manganese for animals. The low solubility of IntelliBond at neutral pH results in less interaction in the feed/premix and in the upper gastrointestinal tract. This means more metal is available for use by the animal where it is needed most. Exclusive OptiSize® particle technology creates uniform particles, making IntelliBond non-hygroscopic.

Product application
