If it doesn’t say IntelliBond, then it isn’t IntelliBond: This article provides an overview of what makes IntelliBond such a unique, strong and dependable source of Copper, Manganese and Zinc in animal feed. It also draws attention to the indispensable role these trace minerals play in the fertility, growth and health of animals. And yet, when they are provided in the form of IntelliBond they only comprise approximately 0,75% of the cost of a high performance feed. Nutritional integrity that is not worth compromising.
IntelliBond hydroxy trace minerals are designed to maximize bioavailability, driving optimised animal health and productivity.
Trace Minerals and Rumen Microbe Function. Weak iconic bonds from sulfates cause dissociation of the metal when exposed to moisture (rumen fluid) and release free metal ions. The free metals have the ability to negatively affect microbe function.
Traceability is the ability to trace the history of a specific production lot. History of a production lot includes identifying the origin of raw materials, the processing conditions of the production lot, results of raw material and final product test analysis, source and origin of packaging, and the customers to whom the production lot was distributed
Trace Minerals and Preferential Intake. Weak ionic bond from sulfates causes dissociation of metal when exposed to moisture (saliva). Animals have evolutionarily developed an aversion to metallic tasting compounds due to their indication of plant toxicity. These free metal ions activate T2R bitter-sensing receptors.
