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 optimized pregnancy rate, calf weaning weight, and cow longevity—while reducing environmental impact.
