    The nutrition effect and formulations application of trace elements
    Xingjia Bio-Engineering Co, Ltd
    Trace elements consist of Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, I, Se, Co, Cr etc, accounting for less than 0.01% of the total body weight only. As aminoacids and vitamins, the trace elements are the essential nutrition additives in feeds, especially Fe, Zn and Mn which are called "biological Metal". See Table 1-1, 1-2

Proper nutrition fundamental for strengthening sow offspring
Cassio Villela, Sr. Swine Marketing Specialist, Novus International, Inc.
  • Sows have been bred to increase litter size and milk production, as well as improve other productivity traits. With such successful selection, litter size has increased and, in general, piglet birth weight has decreased. Low birth weight piglets are less likely to pull through the competition of a crowded udder and have more chances of pre-wean mortality and poor performance, which ultimately leads to high economic losses.

Trace minerals and livestock: not too much not too little
Marta Lopez-Alonso, Department of Animal Pathology, Veterinary Faculty, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain
  • The new approaches of the animal production systems make managing the mineral nutrition a challenge. Versus the excessive, trace mineral supply in intensively managed livestock, well above the physiological requirements, is the no trace mineral supplementation of organic systems, which become highly dependent on trace minerals in the soil. Nowadays, in addition to the animal health perspective, trace mineral nutrition must be environment friendly and allow getting mineral-enriched animal products. We are in a new scenario, where a balance between animal trace mineral needs and limits is needed. This papers focuses on different aspects that will help us to enter a critical dialogue in relation to animal-human-environment.
