Trace Element Testing

Trace element testing is performed by collecting samples of liver and blood from a varied selection of animals in the herd. The benefits of trace element testing allow for us to identify where individual animals or the overall herd are lacking and to get ahead of this before important dates of the year such as pre-mating, pre-calving and pre-dry off.

The ability to rectify deficiencies means that your cows can operate at optimum performance year-round meaning better production, better reproduction rates and better overall animal health.

Trace elements tested for are:

  • Cobalt/B12

  • Copper

  • Iodine

  • Selenium

  • Zinc
