Overview: Mintrex® is a chelated trace mineral that optimizes key production parameters above levels obtained by other chelated mineral sources, directly increasing customer profitability. Only Mintrex® can improve your bottom line by increasing salable meat, decreasing mortality, improving feed efficiency and improving immune response.
Mintrex® chelated trace minerals combine Alimet® feed supplement with an essential trace mineral in a two-to-one chelated molecule. This protects the mineral from antagonists, allowing it to be more efficiently absorbed once reaching the small intestine. The result is greater bioavailability, digestive tract stability and a residual methionine effect that can reduce the required level of supplemental methionine per ton of feed.
