The Role of Trace Minerals in Dairy
nutrition plays a critical role in building and maintaining strong, healthy
feet. For example, zinc and copper are essential nutrients for developing
healthy claw horn tissue, while zinc and manganese play a crucial role in wound
healing. Research has shown that feeding a combination of trace minerals (Zn,
Mn, Cu and Co) in a highly available complexed form helps decrease both the
incidence and severity of common claw lesions.
