Optimal vitamins and minerals for an efficient dairy and beef production

The right formula of vitamins and minerals in feed for ruminants is essential to optimize the performance in your professional production.

Vitamins and minerals represent only a small part of the feed for ruminants, yet these nutrients are essential to achieve top productivity. Vitamins facilitate most biological processes while minerals act as building blocks. Minerals build tissues and are furthermore essential for enzymes and biological processes.
