Environmental losses of micronutrients
Animals have a requirement for micronutrients (zinc, copper, manganese, selenium,…) in order to maintain metabolism, body processes and optimal production. However, depletion of global resources and accumulation in the environment as a consequence of losses through manure are of high concern. Orffa has invested for many years in development of mineral sources that can tackle part of this problem. Hydroxy Trace Minerals are the third generation of products developed with an increased bio-availability, improving mineral retention by the animal and lowering losses to the environment.
The world’s rare selenium resources need to be managed carefully! Reducing wasteful excretion is therefore of prime importance!
