The influence of minerals on the stability of premix and feed components

There are many forms of mineral complexes available in the marketplace for use in animal nutrition but very little information is available comparing the potential antagonisms, which can occur between different mineral sources and enzymes within animal feed.

It is important that diet formulators pay greater attention to the influence of minerals on the stability of premix and feed components, in order to minimise the financial costs associated with negative interactions.
