Extract

Antioxidant mechanisms, immune responses, reproduction, thyroid metabolism are processes in which the trace element selenium (Se) is involved. In beef production with suckling herds, a Se deficiency could impair animal health resulting in reduced incomes. In Belgium the Se content in locally produced feedstuffs is low and thus, in beef farms where locally produced feedstuffs are fed for the entire year, symptoms of Se deficiency are observed. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect, of Se enriched fertilizers on the Se content of feedstuffs and on the Se status of cattle.
