  • Beta-adrenergic agonists

    -mimic epinephrine or adrenaline; decrease fat, increase lean
    -Ractopamine (paylean in pigs, optaflexx in cattle)
  • Somatotropin 

    -Posilac for dairy cows

  • Chemotherapeutic agents

    -copper sulfate, arsenicals, zinc oxide
  • Chromium

    -improves sow performance
    -repartitioning agent
Macro-Minerals (mg/d - grams/d)
  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Phosphorus (P)
  • Sodium (Na)
  • Chloride (Cl)
  • Potassium (K)
  • Magnesium (Mg)
  • to a certain extent Sulfur (S)
Micro-Minerals (micrograms/d -mg/d)
Trace
  • Copper (Cu)
  • Iodine (I)
  • Iron (Fe)
  • Manganese (Mn)
  • Selenium (Se)
  • Zinc (Zn)
Ultra-trace: B, Cr, Co, F, Mo, Si
Calcium Function: Bones, teeth, regulation of nerve muscle, blood clotting

Deficiency: Rickets, osteomalacia, osteoporosis, milk fever

Toxicity: rare, seen with high vitamin D

Sources: limestone, dicalcium phosphate, bone meal, fish meal

-most abundant mineral in the body

Generated by Koofers.com
Phosphorus Function: bones, teeth, ATP, phosphorylated intermediates, nucleic acids
Deficiency: rickets, osteomalacia
Toxicity: rare, hyperparathyroid, demineralization
Sources: dicalcium phosphate, fish meal, bone meal
-controlled by vitamin D and parathyroid hormone
-plants typically contain P, but in seeds it is in the form of phytic acid
(phytic acid binds divalent metals resulting in reduced digestibility)
Sodium Function: main cation in extracellular fluid, nerve and muscle function

Deficiency: unknown on typical diets, secondary to other issues

Toxicity: unlikely, hypertension in some humans

Sources: salt

Potassium Function: main cation in intracellular fluid, muscle and nerve function

Deficiency: secondary to other issues

Toxicity: unlikely, IV injection causes cardiac arrest

Sources: usually sufficient amounts in grain, KCl sometimes added

Chloride Function: electrolyte balance

Deficiency: secondary to vomiting, renal disease

Toxicity: unlikely 

Sources: Salt

Generated by Koofers.com
Magnesium Function: bones, teeth, enzyme cofactor, ATP metabolism

Deficiency: secondary to malabsorption, grass tetany, anorexia, hyperemia of extremities, bone weakening in pigs

Toxicity: decreased feed intake, diarrhea

Sources: usually sufficient amounts in grain
-absorbed from ileum
Milk Fever
  • Symptoms: listless, staggers or weaves when walks, lies down in a characteristic pose, decreased plasma Ca, no actual fever
  • Treatment: IV Ca solution
  • Prevention: feed low Ca diet in dry period
Ca Toxicity
  • High dietary [Ca] results in decreased absorption (self-regulation)

  • High dietary Ca may create deficiency of other divalent metals (Fe, Zn, Mg, Mn) or I

  • Vitamin D toxicity may cause calcification of soft tissues
Animal agriculture and the Environment Nitrogen and Phosphorus
-ammonia
-Eutrophication (excess nutrients into water causes excess algae growth)
Generated by Koofers.com
Bone Composition
  • Wet Bone (most to least)

    -Water
    -Ash
    -Protein
    -Fat
  • Dry, fat-free bone

    -Inorganic, organic
  • Ash: PO4, Ca, P, other
Macro-minerals supplementation for livestock
  • Ca (common) = limestone
  • P (common) = dicalcium phosphate [expensive]
  • Mg (almost never) = MgSO4
  • K (almost never) = KCl
  • Na (common) = salt
  • Cl (common) = salt
Iron
  • Ferric (+3) -- enzymes
  • Ferrous (+2) -- oxygen transport
  • Function: mostly hemoglobin and myoglobin; other storage forms in liver and spleen; or bound to other enzymes
  • Deficiency: anemia (microcytic or hypochromic)
  • Toxicity: Chronic = diarrhea, reduced growth rate
    Acute = acidosis, death
Cobalt
  • only known function of cobalt is as part of vitamin B12
  • deficiency results in B12 deficiency symptoms
Generated by Koofers.com
Chromium
  • related to insulin action and glucose metabolism (glucose tolerance factor)
  • extremely low levels needed to meet requirement
  • Organic forms shown to: increase lean and decrease fat; improve reproductive efficiency in sows; chromax product
Iodine
  • Only known function is as part of thyroid hormones
  • Deficiency: decreased metabolic rate; reproductive problems; dry skin; enlarged thyroid gland (goiter); prevent with iodized salt
  • Toxicity: rare, water soluble and cleared
Zinc
  • Highest levels in liver, kidney, bone
  • Primary function as a cofactor for enzymes

    -alkaline phosphatase
    -digestive enzymes (carboxypeptidase)
    -synthesis of skin keratin and collagen
  • Deficiency: decreased growth and intake; decreased bone growth; decreased wound healing; abnormal epithelial cells
  • Toxicity: chronic high levels may reduce growth, result in bone problems; used as topical wound ointments
