IntellBond M

IntelliBond M contributes to healthy bone and cartilage, enzymes, immunity, and fertility. Key characteristics make IntelliBond trace minerals like IntelliBond M unique.

Palatability: IntelliBond M preferred over other Mn sources

Three mineral supplements were offered to beef calves containing either IntelliBond M, manganese sulfate, or organic manganese. Calves overwhelmingly preferred the supplement with IntelliBond M as the source of Mn. Calves prefer supplements with IntelliBond M over supplements containing either manganese sulfate or organic manganeses.

Bioavailability: Increased animal performance

Because IntelliBond M appears to be more bio- available than manganese sulfate (MnSO4), we can see an increase in animal performance. For ex- ample, increased hot carcass weight gain in pigs.

Digestibility: Improved nutrient utilisation

Improved sources of manganese such as IntelliBond M do not have a negative impact on organic matter disappearance in rumen fluid.


Traceability is the capability to follow the history of mineral to a specific lot. Micronutrients provides complete traceability for the manganese in IntelliBond M as part of the IntelliBond Quality Cycle.
