Zinc has probably been one of the most extensively studied trace minerals over the last 30 years or more. Zinc is associated with over 300 metalloenzymnes with functions throughout the animal’s body. Zinc is also intimately associated with a number of hormones, thus playing an important role in both the male and female during reproduction. In addition, zinc is necessary for proper growth, skeletal formation, skin and wound healing, and immunity. Because zinc has so many diverse roles, it is imperative that animals consume enough zinc daily to meet their body’s needs for growth, reproduction, and immunity. Check your diets and ensure that your animals are getting all the zinc they need. Spending a little now can make you more in the future.
SQM Zinc is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
