Your Best Shot at Strategic Trace Mineral Supplementation

Supports immunity and successful transitions

Multimin® 90 (zinc, copper, manganese, and selenium injection) is a proven, one-of-a-kind solution to provide trace minerals known to support cattle health and reproduction. Trace mineral supplementation with Multimin 90 compliments a well-balanced oral program to support both cow and calf immune systems1 and provide four key trace minerals during the transition period.2
Multimin 90 Immunity
Supports both natural immunity and vaccine response1
Transition Cows
Optimal trace mineral supplementation during times of peak demand2
Milk Quality
Supports udder health3 and aids in the management of somatic cell count4

Why is trace mineral supplementation necessary?

Inadequate trace mineral status in cattle leads to suppressed immune function, lower fertility, and decreased growth.5 For this reason, a strong oral nutrition program is a necessary management tool for all dairy producers. However, every oral mineral program comes with challenges:
  • Close-up period challenges such as feeding anionic salts, which increase antagonist exposure and decrease palatability, and further depress intakes beyond typical reduction immediately prior to calving
  • Variation in intake between cattle in the group
  • Stressful production events increase mineral demand and lower trace mineral status. Oral trace minerals require more time to replenish these increased needs

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.6,7 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?

Trace minerals reach peak plasma levels within 8–10 hours after injection6
Since it’s an injectable, trace minerals bypass antagonists that may be present in the rumen6,7
Supplements every animal injected
Can be used to strategically supplement four key trace minerals during high demand periods, such as transition, vaccination, and reproduction

Research results from trace mineral supplementation with Multimin 90:

  • Reduced somatic cell counts2
  • Reduced clinical mastitis8
  • Reduced metritis cases9
  • Reduced incidence of stillborn calves9
  • Increased vaccine response1
  • Tended to increase the colostrum quality in heifers when used with a scours vaccine10

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
