Have you ever heard your veterinarian talk about giving an injectable trace mineral shot? If so, has this left you wondering what the big deal is?

Trace minerals such as Copper, Selenium, Zinc, and Manganese are important for reproduction, growth, and optimal immune function. When animals are stressed, such as during calving, at weaning, transporting, feedlot receiving time, or breeding, their levels of these minerals decrease. By giving an injectable form of these trace minerals we are able to rapidly increase the trace mineral status of the cow.

An example of a time we like to use an injectable trace mineral product is around 30 days prior to calving, when we are boostering our scours vaccine in the cows. This is important because the unborn calf is completely reliant on its mother for trace minerals at this stage of life. Trace minerals are critical for fetal development and immune function after birth.

Another example would be giving a trace mineral injection during vaccination. This decreases the risk of disease in the herd by increasing the percentage of animals that develop antibody to the vaccine. The reasoning behind this is when modified live vaccines are given, trace minerals are pulled from the body because they play an active role in different pathways of the acquired immune response. By giving an injection of trace minerals at the time of vaccination, you are driving the immune response for better health.

Did you know that approximately 1/3 of mortality in the first 3 weeks of life are attributable to failure of passive transfer? ๐Ÿค”

Failure of passive transfer is when the calf doesn't recieve the proper quality or quantity of colostrum to transfer the antibodies in the milk to the calf to be absorbed. Calves are different from other species in that they do not get antibodies transferred across their placenta while in utero, making proper colostrum intake very important. When a calf is first born, they have an "open gut" which allows them to to easily absorb the antibodies available to them in colostrum. But this "open gut" starts to rapidly shut down by 12-18 hours of life. For this reason it is extremely important to make sure the calf gets up and nurses within this window, the sooner the better. In some cases, colostrum replacement or supplementation is warrented. But remember, not all colostrum powders are made equally, consult your veterinarian! This is a critical part of long-term productivity and health of the animal. So moral of the story, colostrum is liquid gold!
