Product Information

  • A meticulously formulated feed supplement combining Selenium, Vitamin E, Lysine, and Methionine, providing an all-inclusive nutritional solution tailored to support optimal livestock health, growth and performance.
  • By supplying essential amino acids Lysine and Methionine, the supplement promotes robust growth and development, ensuring your livestock are in peak condition for shows and sales and maximising profit margins.
  • A unique blend of Selenium and Vitamin E provides powerful antioxidant support, protecting your animals against oxidative stress, maintaining optimal immune function and supporting overall animal health.
  • This specially formulated feed supplement helps mitigate the physiological stress animals experience during high-performance periods such as pre-slaughter finishing, improving overall performance and productivity.
  • The unique formulation contributes to improved meat quality at slaughter, including marbling, colour, and oxidative stability, increasing the overall market value of the livestock and helping meet stringent industry standards.

Technical  Information

Livestock health and productivity are central concerns for farmers, breeders, and show competitors alike. Their approach lies in effective nutritional strategies, catering to the specific needs of the animals. These strategies are critical to supplementing crucial nutrients, including Selenium, Vitamin E, Lysine, and Methionine, essential in livestock development and preparation for shows and sales.

The Pivotal Role of Selenium and Vitamin E

Selenium and Vitamin E are indispensable in livestock nutrition. They serve as potent antioxidants, vital for protecting against oxidative damage. In addition, they play a significant role in maintaining optimal immune function and preserving muscle tissue, which is crucial for livestock’s overall health and well-being (Surai, 2006). Particularly during high-performance periods like pre-slaughter finishing or show preparations, these antioxidants mitigate the impact of physiological stress. Animals deficient in Selenium may suffer from muscular weaknesses or white muscle disease, affecting their overall appearance and mobility (Suttle, 2010). Similarly, Vitamin E deficiency can result in reduced growth rates, compromised immune response, and poor reproductive performance (Spears, 2000). It’s thus critical to ensure optimal levels of these nutrients in animals preparing for shows or sales.

The Promise of Lysine and Methionine

Lysine and Methionine, two essential amino acids, are critical for protein synthesis, influencing livestock growth, metabolism, and muscle development. Regrettably, these amino acids are often insufficient in standard livestock diets, potentially undermining the animals’ performance (Lobley et al., 2000). Conversely, dietary supplementation with these amino acids supports robust growth, metabolism and muscle development in livestock, priming them for peak performance in shows or sales (Kumar et al., 2019).

Deficiencies in these amino acids can lead to reduced growth rates, poor feed efficiency, and diminished animal performance. Insufficient dietary Lysine, for instance, can affect an animal’s physical condition, negatively impacting its performance and value. Likewise, methionine deficiency can result in reduced growth rates, poor wool or hair coat disease, and impaired immune function, negatively impacting an animal’s appearance and health status. 

Benefits for Cattle and Sheep

Supplementation with Selenium, Vitamin E, Lysine, and Methionine significantly benefits cattle and sheep. It enhances muscle growth and overall body condition for cattle, which is vital when preparing these animals for shows or sales. Additionally, it supports colostrum quality, ensuring calves’ health and robust growth, an essential aspect of maintaining a high-quality herd (Chen et al., 2016). For sheep, it aids in the growth and finishing of lambs, bolstering muscle development and weight gain. In addition, it plays a significant part in preparing animals for shows and enhancing meat quality at slaughter, contributing to a well-rounded, profitable flock.

In conclusion, ensuring a balanced and complete diet for animals being prepared for shows or sales is of utmost importance. Furthermore, regular supplementation, especially in the face of imbalances or deficiencies, can support animals’ health and well-being, leading to better performance and higher value during shows and sales.
