Trace minerals in fodders and concentrates



Trace minerals in fodders and concentrates



Indian J Veterinary Sci Anim Husband 36(3): 130-134



Different types of common feeds and fodders were analysed for their manganese, copper, cobalt and iron contents. On an average the contents of these minerals were high in concentrates. Compared to dry fodders, green fodders were rich in copper content having the average concentrations of 8.2 and 12.5 ppm respectively. Paddy, kodra and bavto straws were rich in all the trace minerals with a range of 61 to 91 ppm manganese, 9 to 11 ppm copper, 0.60 to 0.74 ppm cobalt and 27 to 40 mg per cent iron. Concentrates were good sources for copper and iron whereas they were comparatively lower in manganese except rice polish. Groundnut cake and cottonseed cake were fairly rich in all the minerals. The variations observed can be due to many factors like soil, climate, genetical and physiological make-up of plant, stage of growth or cutting and in the case of byproducts the mode of preparing and storing. It was observed that the chances of diseases occurring due to deficiencies of these minerals are meager if the animals are supplied with sufficient quantity of well-mixed feeds and fodders.
