IntelliBond in Broilers
IntelliBond hydroxy trace minerals represent the latest in trace mineral technology and are an advanced source of nutrients for broiler feeds: providing excellent bioavailability and productivity while driving optimized animal performance.
Why Copper, Zinc & Manganese?
Copper, zinc and manganese are essential trace minerals for poultry production. Copper functions as a component in many critical enzyme systems, and hydroxy sources of copper have been shown to optimize growth performance and feed efficiency when fed at higher nutritional concentrations.
Zinc helps to optimize immune function, skin and bone integrity, reproduction and bird growth and efficiency. Zinc accomplishes these objectives by meeting the physiological needs of the bird following its absorption in the intestinal tract.
Manganese supports - among other things - structural development and integrity and nervous system function.
What Makes IntelliBond the Smart Choice?
IntelliBond has unique properties and, due to its crystalline structure and low water solubility, has been proven to maintain feed stability, bioavailability and broiler performance - even at lower inclusion levels - compared with other trace mineral sources.
Benefits in Broilers
IntelliBond's unique crystalline structure limits interactions with antagonists in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, minerals are protected and more are available for use by the animal.
• Compared to sulfates, IntelliBond is designed to have ideal reactivity to avoid destructive interactions and promote availability, driving optimized bird performance and productivity
Benefits for Broiler Performance
IntelliBond C and IntelliBond Z significantly support feed conversion and body weight, positively affecting bird productivity. IntelliBond M provides a highly available source of manganese supplementation to the bird.
• IntelliBond Z can help zinc's delivery to the bird to support skin integrity, feathering and paw quality
• IntelliBond can support feed conversion and gut function during periods of high productivity or environmental stress
Benefits in Feed
Avoids Negative Interactions with Other Nutrients in Feed
• IntelliBond minimizes degradation (oxidation) of essential nutrients, such as vitamins and fats
• IntelliBond avoids binding with other critical feed constituents such as Ca, P and amino acids
Feed Mill Handling and Mixability
• Exclusive OptiSize® particle technology creates uniform particles to make IntelliBond easy to handle and blend while reducing dust
• IntelliBond is non-hygroscopic - no clumping
