Topics will include oxidative stress, its impact on cattle performance and the role of trace minerals in immunity and cattle health. The webinar will also cover the current complexities of oral supplementation including absorption and mineral antagonism, along with offering up to date information on the latest innovation to boost trace mineral availability during high demand periods in the production and breeding life cycle.
Delivered livestream by James Husband, an RCVS specialist in cattle health & production, at 8pm on Wednesday 20th November, the webinar will also be available to view for a further 6 months.

Oxidative Stress : Its Effect on Calves and Weanlings
It has been well documented that the new born calf’s mineral status and antioxidant capacity is highly correlated with the maternal source. Significant mineral transfer in the last trimester leads to liver levels which are typically higher than the dam’s levels at birth.
Oxidative Stress : Its Effect on Cattle and the Role of Trace Minerals
Reactive Oxygen Species or Free Radicals are constantly formed during normal aerobic cellular metabolism. Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive oxidants that can remove an electron from another compound leaving it oxidised.
