Zinc (ZN) is an essential trace element which is responsible for many functions of animal organisms.
As component of many enzymes, it contributes actively to the functioning of the immune system, fertility, muscle growth, milk production, egg shell quality, etc. Its contribution to health and integrity of skin and hooves is well known.
The bioavailability of Zn from chelate or organic compounds is significantly bigger that the one of inorganic salts (such as Zn oxide and Zn sulphate).
Sufficiency of high bioavailable Zn is extremely important in times of stress, such as:
the period before and after the animal birth (transition period),
the period of high milk production, due to the high participation of concentrated feed in the diet which often leads to subacute ruminal acidosis (SARA),
the period of heat stress.
It is worth mentioning that the administration of Glymet ZN is, together with the administration of sufficient bioavailable copper and biotin, one of the most important nutritional means in the control and treatment of the various diseases that cause claudication, both infectious (digital dermatitis or Mortellaro in cows and infectious pododermatitis in small ruminants) as well as keratinization disorders (foot bleeds, foot ulcers, white line disease).
Our company exclusively has Glymet ZN by Norel, a source of highly bioavailable zinc in an organic (chelated) compound with methionine.
Glymet ZN is administrated in all animal species during pregnancy and lactation.
Its dosage is determined by the technical consultants and nutritionists of our company according to the needs of each rearing, as it depends on the production stage, the amount of food consumed while also taking into account the health status of the animals.
It is available in bags of 25 kg or mixed in mixtures of vitamins, macro and trace elements according to the needs of each rearing.
