What are the effects of chelated trace elements on animals

What are the effects of chelated trace elements  on animals?

1. Application effect of amino acid chelate  in cattle raising

Numerous studies have found that feeding calves and crossbreed finishers with zinc methionine and manganese methionine significantly increases growth rates, increases cow conception rates by 15%, and increases calf weaning weight by 5%. happened.

Feeding trace element amino acid chelate to dairy cows can increase the milk production of dairy cows and reduce the occurrence of diseases. Experiments show that heifers supplemented with amino acid chelates (iron, manganese, copper, zinc, etc.) have significantly lower peri-glandular fibrosis rates than control heifers, improve ovarian function, and reduce embryo mortality. The apparent absorption rate was measured after adding zinc to the dairy cow feed. According to the milk production and the zinc content in the milk, the appropriate addition of zinc methionine was about 20 mg/kg.

2. Application effect of amino acid chelate in fish farming

Trace element amino acid chelate is an ideal nutritional additive that meets the nutritional needs of fish. It has a significant effect on promoting fish growth, improving feed conversion rate and fish survival rate. Studies have shown that the use of trace element amino acid chelate to raise fish is compared with inorganic feed, the growth weight is increased by about 18%, the bait coefficient is improved by about 9%, and the absorption rate of elements is increased by about 25%.

3. Application and effect of amino acid chelate in pig raising

Piglet anemia is a major problem to be solved urgently in the breeding industry. Piglets need 7mg of iron per day, but only 1mg can be provided in breast milk. Usually, piglets develop anemia on the 40th day after giving birth, resulting in yellow and white diarrhea, high mortality, and increased mortality. Heavy slow. Feeding of amino acid chelated iron to sows prevents iron deficiency anemia in suckling piglets through placenta and breast milk transfer to piglets. Studies have shown that rations of iron glycinate (containing 150 mg/kg of iron) for sows 2 weeks before and 3 weeks after birth, and piglets without any iron supplementation after birth, can achieve the same weight gain as intramuscular injection of iron dextran. and anemia effects. At the same time, the study found that replacing ferrous sulfate with methionine chelated iron in the diet of sows increased the conception rate of first-class sows by 7.2% on average, the number of live litters increased by 0.73, and the stillbirth rate decreased by 2.1%. Weaning to postpartum The estrus breeding interval was shortened by 1.35d on average.

4. Application effect of amino acid chelate in chicken raising

Feeding laying hens with amino acid trace element chelate can significantly increase egg production rate, increase egg weight and improve egg quality. Analysis of eggs laid by laying hens fed with amino acid chelate showed that the eggshell structure was tighter than that of the inorganic salt group, and the content of trace elements in the yolk was higher than that of the inorganic salt group, and the iron content was 122% of that of the inorganic salt group. Not only does this reduce egg breakage rates by 5%, but it's certainly a great way to produce highly nutritious eggs.

Adding amino acid chelate to feed can promote the growth of broilers, reduce feed consumption, improve feed conversion rate, and reduce skin diseases such as soft leg disease and buttock crusting in chickens. Feeding broilers with amino acid chelated manganese and zinc instead of inorganic sulfate can increase daily weight gain by 6.6%, reduce feed consumption by 5.7%, and reduce the incidence of leg disease by 9.94 percentage points.
