|Framlingham dairy farmer shares her Multimin Challenge results
Since trialing the effect of Multimin 4 in 1 trace mineral injection on immunity and growth rates in her dairy calves, Victoria’s Renee Murfett has already seen some success when it came to disease reduction.Renee’s trial looked at the effect of injections with Multimin in 105 female dairy calves compared to a non-treated control group at birth, six weeks of age, and again at twelve weeks of age.
|At 84 days of age:
There was no longer a visual difference between the treated and non-treated animals which shows Multimin played a greater role when calves were of a younger age and more vulnerable to pick up disease during critical times such as weaning.Overall, this trial confirms the critical roles that trace elements play in immunity and animal health. The trial shows that immunity can be enhanced by use of Multimin, and that optimisation of trace minerals at high demand timepoints can provide improved animal health and productivity.For more information about the Multimin Performance Ready Challenge and ongoing results, click here.
