Bringing you new products is what we like to do at Specialist Sales and this one will not disappoint!

All new Marks-Min Injectable with Vitamin B12 for Cattle is a trace mineral injection for cattle that contains the trace minerals copper, manganese, zinc and selenium along with vitamin B12, required for optimal health, production and fertility in your livestock.

As producers know, minerals and vitamins are a valuable component of your herd’s nutritional program. Although the amount of minerals and vitamins required per beast  is quite small, they are an incredibly important factor to consider when planning the nutritional health of your herd. 

Minerals and vitamins play an important role in the growth, development and fertility of your livestock by supporting proper animal function, including bone development, immune function, muscle development, and nervous system function. Cattle growth and reproductive performance is optimised when a good mineral and vitamin program is in place.

Beef cattle require at least 17 different mineral elements in their diets. These minerals are classified as either macrominerals (major minerals) or microminerals (trace minerals), based on the quantities required in beef cattle diets. Macrominerals are required in larger quantities than microminerals.

Macrominerals include calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, chlorine, and sulfur. Microminerals include chromium, cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, nickel, selenium, and zinc. 

Nutrient requirements of specific mineral elements vary, depending on the animal age, weight, stage of production, lactation status, breed, stress, and mineral bioavailability (the degree to which a mineral becomes available to the target tissue after administration) from the diet.

The beauty of Marks-Min Injectable Trace Mineral With Vitamin B12 For Cattle is that it optimises trace mineral and vitamin B12 levels at critical times, including calving, mating and drying off and can have a positive impact on health, immune status and reproductive capacity of your livestock.

Marks-Min Injectable Trace Mineral With Vitamin B12 For Cattle combines trace minerals with vitamin B12 in one convenient rapidly absorbed injection, ensuring essential trace minerals for optimal health are available together with energy provided by vitamin B12 to help support the best response to trace mineral supplementation.
