    Relative Bioavailability of Trace Minerals in Production Animal Nutrition: A Review

    Simple Summary

    This is a comprehensive review containing the most up-to-date information on the relative bioavailability of selected trace minerals (copper, iron, manganese and zinc) used in ruminant, poultry and swine nutrition. Inorganic and organic forms of the trace minerals are included, and the differences between the product types are highlighted. Building on previously published tables and data, this review incorporates studies on newly developed products and concepts not previously discussed. Extensive data tables are included, providing a valuable reference guide. Methods to calculated relative bioavailability of the minerals are discussed and reasons for potential variance are noted. Detailed background information on uptake mechanisms to aid understanding of mineral transport is also contained in the current review.
