Real Amino Acid Chelated Minerals
Powered by Science
The science used in Tracer's amino acid chelated minerals was developed by our science-driven company that has assembled an outstanding team of engineers, animal scientists, and nutritionists. Our founder, Chris Schuetze, is passionate about animal health and the viability of the production animal industry. His research, along with many others', has helped develop this transformational technology that improves the health and profitability of your herd.

Top 5 Reasons that Amino Acid Chelated Minerals are the Real Deal
We make a superior product with only the finest ingredients. Lots of companies claim to sell a chelated product, but only Tracer's minerals have the unique chemistry required (and AFCO defined) 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.
Frequently asked questions
Why should I provide a mineral supplement in the first place? Aren't mineral blocks enough?
You need to provide a trace mineral supplement because most trace mineral blocks contain only around 4% trace mineral. Minerals help vitamins do their job and are recognized as the most important nutritional component. You have to have adequate trace minerals to obtain optimum health.
Why should I choose amino acid chelated mineral over regular mineral?
Amino acid chelated minerals, like the ones Tracer Minerals provides, are more completely absorbed than regular mineral supplements. With a more readily absorbed mineral you are getting more for your money. There are two causes of mineral deficiency: inadequate intake and lack of mineral absorption. You want to provide the mineral that is easiest to absorb.
What is an amino acid chelated mineral?
An amino acid chelate is produced through a patented technology. It is the process of stabilizing an ion by binding it to an amino acid. This process improves the absorption of the mineral. Chelated mineral is is the most readily usable form of mineral, meaning it is the easiest for the body to absorb.
What are some problems caused by mineral deficiency?
What are some areas that I can expect to see improvement after providing an amino acid chelated trace mineral supplement?
The three main areas that will improve are hormone function. immunity, and energy utilization. It will improve the health, performance, growth, development, and fertility of your animals naturally.
