Your Best Shot at Cattle Health and Reproduction
Why is trace mineral supplementation necessary?
- Antagonists such as sulfur, iron, and molybdenum in water and/or feed can bind minerals in the rumen, limiting absorption
- Variation in intake between cattle in the group
- Stressful production events increase mineral demand and lower trace mineral status. Oral trace minerals cannot quickly meet these increased demands
How does Multimin 90 work?
Multimin 90 is designed to complement an oral nutrition program. When used strategically during periods of high demand, studies demonstrate Multimin 90 rapidly increases the status of zinc, copper, manganese and selenium in cattle.1,7 These four key trace minerals are used for important biological processes, including physiological structure and function, immunity, and reproduction.
Multimin 90 is delivered by subcutaneous injection, reaching peak trace mineral levels in the blood within 8–10 hours post-injection. Within 24 hours, injectable trace minerals are transported via the bloodstream to the liver where they are stored and can be mobilized and released into the bloodstream when needed by the animal.
What are the benefits of strategic trace mineral supplementation with Multimin 90?
When should Multimin 90 be used?
- Last trimester of pregnancy
- 30 days pre-breeding or at CIDR insertion (11 days before AI)
- 90 days post weaning
- 45–60 days prior to breeding season
- Branding/first vaccination
- At processing
How should Multimin 90 be used?
- Consult your veterinarian. Always read and follow label directions. Do not overdose
- Multimin 90 has a 14-day preslaughter withdrawal and 0-day milk withdrawal
- Determine the weight of the animal and calculate the correct amount of product based on label directions
- Maximum volume per injection site is 7 mL
- Always follow Beef Quality Assurance guidelines (www.BQA.org) to perform a proper tented technique for subcutaneous injections using the middle of the side of the neck
- Minimum distance between injection sites is 4 inches. Inject Multimin 90 on the other side of the neck if multiple products are injected
- Do not inject Multimin 90 behind the shoulder
- Use clean needles and replace often. Do not inject cattle in wet weather or cattle with muddy/dirty skin. Injecting cattle during wet weather increases the potential for carrying a contaminant into the injection site
