The absorption of bioplex-trace minerals
An experiment was conducted to examine the effects of bioplex or inorganic Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn supplementation of a mineral-deficient broiler diet on bird performance on deep litter and on absorption site and digestibility. A deficiency of trace minerals severely depressed feed intake and growth rate, but did not adversely affect FCR. Supplemental organic (Bioplex) sources of trace minerals significantly (P<0.01) improved zinc absorption in the ileum.
