Poultry

Minerals are only of value to the animal if they are available for utilization. Because of their smart bonds, IntelliBond products provide a source of essential minerals that are consistently available for use by the animal. Efficient mineral utilization equals increased bird growth rates, improved feed efficiency, increased carcass yield and quality, improved egg production, fertility, and bird well-being.
