Alltech did some myth busting at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Cattle Industry Convention & Trade Show with regards to the latest strategies and newest technologies in trace mineral supplementation.

A panel discussion including Dr. Vaughn Holder, ruminant research director with Alltech, conducted a forum where they busted five mineral myths relating to ruminant nutrition. Holder said producers should get help when determining the correct mineral balance for their cattle.

“Work with your nutritionist. Ask the questions that you need to ask about quality versus quantity of trace minerals. Talking about using a lot less of something of high quality than a lot more of something of low quality. These are important concepts,” said Holder.
