Game Block

It is almost impossible for nature to provide 100% in the needs of animals. Free ranging animals like game are exposed to environmental challenges and changes resulting in some shortage or imbalance in nutrient supply. This is reflected in condition, growth, production and reproduction changes throughout the seasons.

The nutrients Sodium (Na) & Chloride (Cl), found in Salt (NaCl), are essential for life. Salt supplementation is key to a balanced diet. Salt helps regulate blood pH, maintain acid-base balance, assist with digestion and nutrient absorption to keep animals healthy. Trace minerals are nutrients needed in very small quantities.

They play important roles in metabolic processes like, health, immunity, production and reproduction. The 7 critical Trace elements include, Iron (Fe), Zinc (Zn), Manganese (Mn), Copper (Cu), Iodine (I), Cobalt (Co) and Selenium (Se). More detailed information regarding their functions and role in the wellbeing and production of animals are available from Pecus.
