Industry Background  

Feed micronutrients are vital animal fodder additives that are added to the feed of the animals that are unable to obtain adequate vitamins and nutrients from the regular traditional feeds for enhancing the milk yield, growth and animal health. They help in the prevention and cure of diseases and to improve digestibility in animals. They are gaining wide popularity mainly due to increased applications as a growth promoter with positive results for improving digestibility, maximizing reproduction rate and prevention & cure of diseases. Trace minerals are metallic ions required to resist against major diseases. Superoxide dismutase, Reductase, Glutathione, catalase, thioredoxin reductase, glutathione, ceruloplasmin, and peroxidase act as an oxidant neutralizer. Micronutrients including vitamins, minerals, enzymes play a significant role against the chemical agents produced under diverse processes and contribute to cattle health by improvising their growth and immunity level. Feed micronutrients further enhances the gut absorption and reproductive system among the ruminants.
