Optimins: Proteinated trace minerals are organic complexes

Zinc: Deficiency leads to reduced feed intake and lower efficiency of utilisation resulting in poor growth in young animals. Involved in bone and blood formation, development of the immune system, hoof and skin development (Keratin formation is Zinc dependent), thus resulting in healthy hooves and udder tissues (e.g. teat canal linings).

Copper: Deficiency gives rise to reduced growth rate, poor bone formation, anaemia, fertility (silent heat). A highly available source will help build up body stores.

Deficiency leads to impaired growth, defective bone formation, reduced fertility (adults), bone malformation (young stock), oestrous cycle disturbances and abortion (embryo viability).

Important for thyroid gland function and energy metabolism.
Selenium: Plays an important role along with Vitamin E in the immune and reproduction system. Protects against tissue damage e.g. White Muscle disease.

Cobalt: Required to produce B12. Deficiencies lead to unthriftyness and anaemia.
