Minerals

Calcium and Phosphorus

  • Plays a key role in bone development
  • Adequate calcium and phosphorus are needed for healthy teeth and bones
  • Being the major mineral components of the skeleton, long-term deficiencies of either can cause bones to weaken and decrease weight gain

Magnesium

  • Proper enzyme and nervous system function
  • Efficient carbohydrate metabolism
  • Deficiency can result in nervousness and muscle tremors

Sodium and Chloride 

  • Salt is required for the regulation of body fluids
  • Chronic shortage of salt can lead to decreased appetite and water intake causing dehydration  

Sulphur

  • Component of amino acids such as methionine, cystine and cysteine, vitamins such as biotin and thiamine and many important body substances such as heparin, insulin, coenzyme A and chondroitin sulphate
  • Concentration of sulphur containing amino acids is highest in the hoof and hair, which contain the protein keratin. Keratin contains 4% sulphur and is necessary for the maintenance of the skin, hair and hoof, helping to give strength and hardness to these protein tissues.

Micro Minerals Cobalt 

  • Incorporated into vitamin B12 by micro-organisms in the gut
  • Primary deficiency symptom is loss of appetite and poor growth  

Copper

  • Required for connective tissue and iron utilisation
  • Copper deficiency can lead to anaemia as well as bone and joint problems
  • Deficiency can also cause dull, discoloured coats

Iodine

  • Essential mineral for function of thyroid hormones that regulate energy metabolism and growth
  • Iodine deficiency causes goitre (an enlarged thyroid gland), which shows up as a swelling of the throat

Iron

  • Primary component of blood haemoglobin
  • Iron deficiency causes anaemia, making the animals weak and listless

Manganese

  • Required for cartilage development and proper utilisation of other trace minerals
  • Manganese deficiency can cause cartilage and bone deformities in growing animals

Selenium

  • Antioxidant properties increase the animal’s immunocompetency (disease resistance)
  • Selenium deficiency can lead to white muscle disease in newborn animals and reduced reproductive performance in adult animals  

Zinc 

  • Component of many enzymes and important for healthy skin, bone, hoof, connective tissue and reproduction
  • Zinc deficiency causes reduced appetite and growth in young animals in addition to poor hoof and skin growth as well as reproductive problems
