Marks-Min® Copper Free
Injectable Trace Mineral
with Vitamin B12 for
Cattle & Sheep that don’t
need copper supplementation.

TRACE MINERAL INJECTION WITH VITAMIN B12 TO SUPPORT OPTIMAL HEALTH, PRODUCTION AND FERTILITY IN CATTLE AND SHEEP.

For sheep and cattle that don’t require copper supplementation, Marks-Min® Copper Free Injectable Trace Mineral with Vitamin B12 provides the benefits of both B12 and trace minerals in a single injection. Marks-Min Copper Free contains selenium, zinc, manganese and vitamin B12, which are required for optimal health, production and fertility. Sub-optimal trace mineral and vitamin B12status at parturition and mating has been shown to negatively impact production, reproduction and health. Using an injectable supplement can improve trace mineral and vitamin B12 status at these critical times, promoting a healthy immune system, which is important in resisting disease, and has a positive impact on reproduction.
