Maximize the benefits of feeding trace minerals
SQM™ protected minerals and vitamins from QualiTech help your swine improve performance in a variety of important ways including optimal growth, immunity, hoof health and reproduction. QualiTech products also provide essential components for your animals’ enzymes, hormones and cells.
SQM Protected Minerals™
The innovation and increased bioavailability of SQM protected minerals™ can have a direct impact on swine performance.
But QualiTech has gone well beyond swine nutrition. SQM protected minerals™ are well aligned with swine physiology to optimize mineral use within the animal and maximize the benefits of feeding these highly available trace minerals.
SQM protected minerals™—and our proprietary PolyTransport™ technology—are designed to support key factors that are critical to pork production including: maximum feed conversion, healthy, high-performing pigs, skin condition, hoof health, optimal reproductive efficiency, number of pigs per litter, and time from birth to weaning.
QualiTech innovation has created an effective way of protecting trace minerals in their challenging journey from feed processing to absorption by the animal.
That’s the power of SQM protected minerals™.
SQM™ 4 Swine
Formulated especially for swine, SQM™ 4 Swine contains polysaccharide complexes of four important trace minerals: zinc, manganese, iron and copper. The proven bioavailability of SQM™ protected trace minerals helps ensure that these trace minerals are protected until they reach the site of optimal absorption in your swine.
SQM™ 4 Swine nourishes and strengthens dairy cows in key performance areas including: optimum overall animal health, robust reproductive performance, excellent hoof health, and strong immune function.
SQM™ Copper is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
Copper is an essential trace mineral for all stages of production throughout an animal’s life. Critical functions of copper include reproduction, immunity, bone formation and maturity, iron metabolism, cellular respiration, hair and wool pigmentation, and lipid metabolism.
To keep animals healthy and productive it is necessary to ensure they are able to consume and absorb enough copper from the diet to meet the needs of these critical functions. The proven bioavailability of SQM™ protected trace minerals helps ensure that the copper you provide your animals is absorbed and used.
SQM Iron is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
Iron has been recognized as a required trace mineral since ancient times, and iron deficiency is probably the most common deficiency disease affecting swine. Although iron deficiency is not of any real concern in other livestock species, it is required in the diet to maintain bodily functions. Many biochemical reactions in the body require iron, particularly those involved in electron and oxygen transport. In addition, iron plays a key role in two of the enzymes that breakdown peroxide molecules, thus helping the animal stay healthy.
The proven bioavailability of SQM™ protected trace minerals helps ensure that the iron you provide your animals is absorbed and used.
SQM™ Magnesium is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
Magnesium is the only macro-mineral product produced by QualiTech. Magnesium is one of the most abundant elements in an animal’s body and is found largely in the bones and teeth. However, in addition to these structural roles, magnesium is necessary for many of the enzymes involved with energy metabolism, protein synthesis, muscular contraction, immunity, and possibly even reproduction.
A common disease resulting from magnesium deficiency is grass tetany. This can occur even when a high magnesium supplement is fed simply because the animal does not consume the supplement due to the bad taste associated with magnesium oxide. Replacing some of the magnesium oxide with SQM™ magnesium can help to alleviate this problem.
The proven bioavailability of SQM™ protected trace minerals helps ensure that the magnesium you provide your animals is absorbed and used.
SQM™ Manganese is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
Manganese is considered a dietary essential for all animals, and deficiencies have been noted in swine, poultry, and ruminants fed diets formulated with normal feed ingredients. While the dietary requirement for manganese may seem low, it plays a vital role in many physiological functions including, but not limited to: reproduction, immunity, bone growth, enzyme activity, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
Keeping your animals healthy and productive is your goal. The proven bioavailability of SQM protected trace minerals™ helps ensure that the manganese you provide your animals is absorbed and used.
SQM™ Zinc is approved for use in all classes of livestock, pets, and aquaculture.
One of the most extensively studied trace minerals over the last 30 years, zinc is associated with over 300 metalloenzymes 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. The proven bioavailability of SQM™ protected trace minerals helps ensure that the zinc you provide your animals is absorbed and used.
FEEDBUDS® Flavor Systems
Feedbuds® flavor systems are custom formulated QualiTech sweetener products using ingredients proven to increase the palatability of animal feeds. Feedbuds® are complex mixtures of attractant and masking compounds that provide appropriate aroma and flavor at optimal levels.
Feedbuds® help you address a variety of concerns including early weaning of young animals, maximized feed intake, increasing or maintaining consumption of milk replacers, standardizing feeding rations, and making high quality feeds more acceptable to your animals.
Feedbuds® flavor systems are best for dairy, beef, equine, swine, poultry, pet and aquaculture.
