A low dose of trace minerals can pack a punch in poultry nutrition

Dr. Peter R. Ferket, Prestage Department of Poultry Science, North Carolina State University

Trace minerals, which originate from the earth, ultimately account for a relatively small portion of an animal’s diet, but they represent a critical component in animal nutrition and metabolism. Dietary trace mineral imbalances and deficiencies are commonly corrected by various levels of supplementation from inorganic or organic sources, depending on the animal’s minimum requirement and the trace mineral source bioavailability.

The Bellwether: Animal feed as an early indicator of global economic trends

What does animal feed tell us about the world's economic health? Quite a lot, says Alltech Chief Innovation Officer Aidan Connolly.
In the Middle Ages, farmers would put a bell around the neck of the lead ram (a wether) in a flock of sheep. The movements of the flock could be tracked by hearing the bell, even if the flock was not in sight. More than 1000 years later, we still use the term ‘bellwether’ to refer to an indicator or a predictor of something.
