There are twenty-one minerals considered to be nutritionally important. They can be grouped into major minerals and trace (minor) elements. Of the major minerals calcium, phosphorus, sodium, chlorine, potassium, sulphur and magnesium are considered important. Important trace elements are copper, cobalt, iron, iodine, zinc, manganese and selenium.

Mineral deficiencies, and in some cases imbalances, can cause metabolic disturbances and can produce specific deficiency diseases. Fertility, and hence calving percentage, can be affected. Milk production is obviously dependent on the health and the well-being of the dairy cow and any metabolic disturbance will affect milk production.

Mineral and dietary supplements within the AHD Limited product range include Stock Iodine, Calf Oral Electrolytes, Reload Copper capsules, Vitamec D3, Vitamec AD & E and Selenium.

If you have specific questions relating to mineral and dietary supplements please contact your Farm Consultant or Veterinarian for specific recommendations for treatment and prevention.
