Minerals used in the production of animal feed industry
Minerals play a very important role in livestock life, especially in concentrated livestock using industrial feeds. So minerals have also become one of the areas of interested in high-quality livestock development strategies. However, not all feed manufacturers are aware of the importance of minerals and mastered the technique of mineral supplementation in the production of animal feed. It can be asserted that in addition to the nutritional components of the food, the use of trace minerals is one of the key technological secrets that determine the quality and competitiveness of the product.
I. The role of minerals in livestock productivity and health
The function of minerals in the body of animals in general is extremely diverse. These include structural functions in some cells to a range of regulatory functions in other cells in the body. Ration requirements of the animal are very important for some minerals including: Calcium, Phosphorus, Chlorine, Iodine, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Sulfur and Zinc.
II. Minerals need supplement
1. Calcium and Phosphorus (Limestone powder)
Calcium and Phosphorus are the two leading minerals in the multivitamin board, which are found in limestone, bone meal, and very little in plant foods.
Ca and P play a major role in skeleton formation and perform many other physiological functions. Ca's role is also expressed in blood clotting and muscle contraction, the role of P with energy exchange. In the production of food to have the appropriate amount of Ca and P need to rely on three factors:
- The adequate supply of minerals in digestible form in the diet.
- There must be a suitable ratio of Ca and P digested in the diet.
Particular attention should be paid to the appropriate amount of Vitamin D, which is essential for the assimilation of Ca and P in the body.
2. Sodium (Na) and chlorine (Cl).
Sodium and chlorine are abundant in table salt. These two elements play a role in stabilizing alkaline acid levels in the blood, keeping the osmotic pressure of blood and tissue. Involves the cushion of blood, stabilizing the heartbeat and breathing. Especially the ingredients of HCl (Acid Clohydric) in the stomach help digest the protein.
3. Iron (Fe)
Iron has a significant amount in plant foods, iron is a component of hemoglobin in red blood cells, contained in muscle myoglobin, in serum transferin, in placental uteroferrin, in milk's lactoferrin. Iron involved in the xytochrom. Iron joins to create muscles, skin and hair.
4. Zinc (Zn)
Zinc (Zn) is an important constituent of many metal-containing enzymes in the animal body including synthetase and transferase DNA and RNA, enzymes that are digested and linked to insulin hormones. Thus, it plays an important role in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. In the production of food when zinc supplementation should choose the zinc compounds in sulfate, carbonate, chloride because it is very easily absorbed.
5. Manganese (Mn)
The function of Manganese is as a constituent of some enzymes involved in the metabolism of starches, fats and proteins. Manganese are essential for the synthesis of chondroitin sulfate, a component of mucopolysaccharide in bone organic matter.
Copper is needed to synthesize erythrocyte hemoglobin, synthesize and activate some oxidative enzymes for metabolism in the body. Simultaneously maintain skin pigmentation, feathers, muscle fibers, maintain tissue tissue respiration, stimulate growth.
