Vitamins are trace organic substances necessary for the normal growth, reproduction, production and maintenance of the animal body, and a type of low-molecular organic compounds necessary for the maintenance of normal metabolic functions. He is one of the important nutrients for animals. When the animal itself cannot be synthesized or the synthesized quantity cannot meet its own needs, it should be added from the feed in time.
The role of vitamins in animals
mainly plays a catalytic role, promoting the synthesis and degradation of some nutrients, thereby regulating and controlling the body's metabolism. Although the amount of vitamins required is small, when the animal's body is lacking, the growth and development and reproductive function of the animal will be affected, and special diseases may appear in severe cases. Generally, vitamins are not easy to lack when eating a large amount of fresh forage. Under intensive feeding conditions, animals are prone to vitamin deficiency when they eat processed and stored forage. Therefore, we should add its dosage appropriately to ensure the health of the animals and better serve the people.
Classification of animal vitamins
Vitamins can be divided into fat-soluble vitamins and water-soluble vitamins according to their solubility. Fat-soluble vitamins include vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K; water-soluble vitamins can be divided into group B vitamins, vitamin C, niacin, pantothenic acid, choline and so on.
Things to pay attention to in vitamins
Different animal species, breeds and growth stages, different feeding methods and conditions, meat production, egg production or milk production and other production purposes, require different standards for vitamins. Many vitamins are destroyed during feed processing and storage, which is caused by the instability of vitamins. For example, vitamins A, E, and D3 are easily oxidized when exposed to light. During the production process, they are not made into crystalline powder and leave the factory. Instead, they are wrapped in a liquid state with starch or the like as a carrier to make small particles.
There are many limiting factors. Vitamins are indispensable in feed, and small amounts have a great effect.More about:Cholecalciferol(VD3 Crystal)40Miu/g
