Poor trace element levels can have a negative impact on the coming seasons production, incalf rate, growth rate and general health.
No matter how much meal is given to a cow, if she is mineral deficient she will under perform.
It is common to find minerals being feed which do not match farm requirements. Deficiencies in trace elements cannot only result from limited intake of a specific element, but also form over supply of one mineral nutrient which can “lock up” other minerals resulting in deficiencies. This especially true for molybdenum which can bind with copper and result in copper deficiencies.
