Some recent developments in the mineral nutrition of farm animals



Some recent developments in the mineral nutrition of farm animals



Feedstuffs 19(10): 32-33



Although studies have shown a great deal about the mineral requirements of farm animals, these data are still incomplete. One difficulty of making such studies is that the requirement varies with the age of the animal. Preg nant gilts have been shown to increase requirements of Ca and P as gestation period became later. Cockerels have higher Ca and P requirements than pullets of the same body weight. Mineral balance should be kept and large excesses of minerals are to be avoided since the presence of one element in excess will often immobilize another. Vitamin D is often helpful in aiding the use of minerals that would otherwise be of little or no value.
