Vitamin E

icon-animals-all.png
       

Vitamin E is an essential nutrient, performing a variety of vital functions in the organism that include various metabolic processes and the formation of antibodies.

It is also a well-known antioxidant that helps to suppress the autoxidation of vitamin A and unsaturated fatty acids.

Insufficient supply with vitamins can lead to disorders. While nowadays a truly deficient vitamin supply for farm animals is only rarely observed in agricultural practice, suboptimal vitamin supply or partial undersupply occurs more frequently.

Vitamin E for Dairy Cows

The milk yield of our dairy cows has continuously risen over the last five decades. Aside from this impressive gain in performance, the susceptibility for diseases has increased at the same time. This is where higher doses of vitamin E at the start of lactation can make an important contribution in improving animal health.

Vitamin E is the most important antioxidant of the animal organism and can capture free oxygen radicals, from which its main metabolic properties in the dairy cow can be deduced. In addition to safeguarding animal health by improving immunity, it is well-known for its positive impact on fertility and stress sensitivity to which dairy cows are very susceptible at the start of lactation in particular.
