Top 5 Reasons that Chelated Minerals are the Real Deal
We make a superior product with only the finest ingredients. Lots of companies can claim to sell a chelated product, but only Tracer's minerals have the unique chemistry required to maximize effectiveness in your herd.
Due to our uniquely chelated minerals, these products are more easily absorbed into the bloodstream. Most products are broken down in the stomach, giving them a very limited window of opportunity to be utilized in the start of the small intestine. Our products use amino acids to carry them past the stomach and throughout the intestinal tract for maximum absorption opportunity.
When utilized on a regular basis, our products help your herd build up innate immunity. Instead of reacting to illness and infection in your herd, treat them proactively with Tracer's affordable products to avoid expensive treatments later.
4. HORMONE FUNCTION
Animals on our products are proven to have higher success rates with reproduction because of the healthy hormone function that happens as a result of better nutrition.
5. ENERGY UTILIZATION
Without chelated minerals, your herd can only utilize so much of the energy they are eating in their feed. By adding our products, you can maximize their energy utilization to get the most out of your bunk time.
How Do We Stack Up?
Compare amino acid chelated minerals with the inorganic alternative and there is no dispute about which is absorbed faster.
As published in the Journal of Applied Nutrition.
Iron = 490% Greater Absorption
Copper = 580% Greater Absorption
Magnesium = 410% Greater Absorption
Calcium = 421% Greater Absorption
Manganese = 340% Greater Absorption
Other Resources Regarding Chelated Trace Minerals
This research explains the effects that chelated trace minerals have on the animal's energy utilization.
This research performed by Kansas State University shows the improvement in pregnancy rates using chelated mineral.

"Stocker cattle when orally drenched with 11cc of the staring fluid, they go find water and go back on feed."
"I have a reduction in the amount meds we have to give just by using starting fluid as a pretreatment."
Better Absorption Explained by Science
Normal trace minerals only have a few feet of intestinal space to absorb into the bloodstream before they are broken down and converted to waste. However, chelated amino acid minerals are chemically formulated to withstand digestion so that your animal has significantly longer lengths of its intestines that can absorb the trace minerals.
