Animal Fat
For energy, slick hair coat. Fat has 2.25 times the energy of carbohydrates

Biotin (water soluble)
B-Vitamin. Needed for enzyme components. Deficiency causes poor or decreased growth

Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)
Antioxidant to prevent fat rancidity.

Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)
Antioxidant to prevent fat rancidity.

Calcium Carbonate
Source of calcium which aids in bone and tooth development.

Calcium Iodate
Organic source of Iodine. Iodine constituent of thyroxine which regulates energy metabolism. Also assists in controlling foot rot and soft tissue lumpy jaw (helps prevent goiter)

Calcium Pantothenate
B-Vitamin (pantothenic acid). Functions as a co-enzyme essential for synthesis and breakdown of fats.

Casein (Dried milk protein)
Primary milk protein in milk (excellent amino acid profile)

Choline Chloride
B-Vitamin (Choline). Essential for fat metabolism and nerve impulse transmission. Aids in digestion and absorption of phospholipids

Citric Acid
Antioxidant and acidulant

Cobalt Sulfate
Source of Cobalt- part of Vitamin B12. It is needed for growth of rumen microorganisms. It helps prevent anemia. Deficiency symptoms include failure of appetite, and rough hair coat.

Copper Sulfate
Source of Copper. It is needed for manufacture of hemoglobin. Enhances iron absorption. Deficiencies may result in severe diarrhea, abnormal appetite, poor growth, coarse bleached or graying hair coat, and osteomalacia.

Dicalcium Phosphate
Source of phosphorus and calcium. Phosphorus is vital in bone formation and utilization of energy.

DL-Methionine
Essential amino-acid

Dried Milk Albumin
Lactalbumin is the primary protein in whey (excellent amino acid profile)

Dried Plasma
FSpray dried plasma that has been seperated from red and white blood cells by chemical and mechanical processing. Milk Products uses only plasma of porcine (pig) origin.

Dried Skimmed Milk
Protein, lactose (milk sugar - carbohydrate of choice for baby mammals) and minerals

Dried Whey
Protein, lactose, and minerals remaining after cheese manufacturing

Dried Whey Product
Protein, lactose, minerals concentrated by removal of part of the lactose component

Dried Whey Protein Concentrate
High protein (about 34%) modified whey product obtained through fractionation of whey via ultrafiltration

Ferrous Sulfate
Source of Iron. Is part of hemoglobin and prevents anemia.

Folic Acid
B-Vitamin. Required in enzymes that are involved in simple carbon transfer.

Lecithin
Stabilizer and emulsifier; enhances digestion of fat. Has nutritional value (contains phospholipids)

Magnesium Sulfate
Source of Magnesium, an activator of many enzymes, ATP, Energy metabolism. Helps prevent irritability, tetany.

Niacin (water soluble)
B-Vitamin. Functions as a co-enzyme in many oxidation-reduction reactions.

Riboflavin Supplement
B-Vitamin. Functions as a co-enzyme in many reactions related to the release of energy from protein.

Sodium Selenite
Inorganic source of selenium to prevent white muscle disease. Synergistic with Vitamin E.

Sodium Silico Aluminate
Enhances free flowing characteristics of dry powder.

Soy Flour
Heat processed, finely ground soybean meal (50% protein)

Soy Protein Concentrate
Specially processed soybean protein with the water soluble carbohydrates and hulls removed. (67% protein)

Soy Protein Isolate
Isolated protein of soybeans with carbohydrate fraction removed. 90% protein, suspendable in water, fiber free

Thiamine Mononitrate
B-Vitamin (Thiamine). Helps body utilize carbohydrates for energy.

Threonine
Essential amino-acid

Tryptophan
Essential amino-acid

Vitamin A Supplement
Stimulates the immune system. Essential for normal vision, cellular function and maintenance of epithelial linings of respiratory, reproductive, and digestive tracts. Helps prevent night blindness, skin problems, and blind, deaf and weak calves.

Vitamin B12
B-Vitamin. Needed for methyl group synthesis from simple carbon units or precursors. Helps prevent pernicious anemia.

Vitamin D3 Supplement
Source of Vitamin D3. Normal bone growth, absorption of calcium of phosphorus; mobilization of calcium and phosphorus. Helps prevent rickets and osteomalacia.

Vitamin E Supplement
Source of Vitamin E. Augments the immune response. Is an antioxidant, functions synergistically with selenium.

Zinc Sulfate
Source of Zinc. It is needed for protein, carbohydrate, fat and nucleic acid metabolism. Deficiencies may cause decreased weight gains, lowered feed efficiency, poor hair coat, skin problems, slow healing wounds and listlessness.
