The trace elements are minerals available in animal tissues in very low concentrations. They are essential nutrients and play a fundamental role in the organic substance synthesis, like hormones, enzymes etc… In nature they are supplied by feeding, however their form might not be sufficiently available for proper&healthy animal nutrition.
The trace elements mainly used in animal feeding are as follows:
Manganese, which improves and stabilizes the reproductive parameters.
Zink, precious in the metabolic activities as component or enzymes activator.
Copper, for enhancing the immune defense system.
Iron, to prevent anaemia and increase blood hemoglobin.
If one ore more elements are not icluded in animal feeding, their health, growing and/or reproductive capabilities are reduced.
