Marks-Min ZMSC with B12 is a trace mineral injection for cattle that contains the trace minerals zinc, manganese, selenium and copper along with vitamin B12, which are required for optimal health, production and fertility.
Optimising trace mineral and vitamin B12 levels at critical times, like calving, mating and drying off, can have a positive impact on growth, the immune system and reproduction in livestock.
Marks-Min ZMSC with B12 provides trace minerals and vitamin B12 in one convenient rapidly-absorbed injection, ensuring essential trace minerals for optimal health are available together with vitamin B12, which is critical for energy production, to help support the best response to trace mineral supplementation.
PART 1: The health benefits of trace minerals
If you intend to raise calves for future herd replacement, then you need to watch our 4-part video series on setting calves on a path to become future, high producers - hosted by Dr James Laidlaw, Technical Services Veterinarian from Boehringer Ingelheim (NZ). In this video we discuss the benefits of supplementing trace minerals.
PART 2: Important growth and development
Think of calves as growing athletes. The higher the performance demands and expectations, the greater the need for trace minerals. This is particularly evident in young, rapidly growing calves and heifers in their first lactation. Watch Dr James Laidlaw, Technical Services Veterinarian from Boehringer Ingelheim (NZ) explain how young, rapidly growing animals will have the highest demand for trace minerals - and why it’s so important to supplement them.
PART 3: Supporting the immune system
Productivity demands support from a strong immune system. For calves it’s crucial in their journey to becoming future, high producers. In this video Dr James Laidlaw, Technical Services Veterinarian from Boehringer Ingelheim (NZ), explains how supplementing trace minerals is a key part to building robust immune systems in calves - and why it’s so important when they’re to become valued contributors in your future herd.
PART 4: The importance of B12
There’s been a lot of talk about vitamin B12 lately and for good reason. Vitamin B12 is essential for the energy required to support the growth, immunity and reproduction, which ensure productivity in young cattle - hugely important if those animals are to be part of your future herd. Dr James Laidlaw, Technical Services Veterinarian from Boehringer Ingelheim (NZ), explains in this video why B12 is so important in developing future, high producers.
