Minerals – AI’s Hidden Ally
by Ed Haag
Dale ZoBell, Utah State University professor and Extension beef specialist, says today’s livestock nutritionists are faced with a dilemma when it comes to researching the role minerals play in the well-being of beef cattle.
“The problem with any mineral study is that there are so many interrelationships,” he says. “It is really difficult to attribute a result to a single cause.”
He adds that this impediment applies to every aspect of mineral research, including reproduction.
