Trace minerals are critical for sexual development in bulls as well as sperm motility and morphology.
Your bulls may not be getting the trace minerals they need due to:
By injecting MULTIMIN® 90, the trace mineral status of bulls can be elevated to coincide with:
"With MULTIMIN® 90, 3% more of our yearling bulls passed their breeding soundness exam."

Trace minerals are vital to overall cow and heifer reproductive performance.
Prior to breeding, cows will have exhausted their trace mineral reserves through pregnancy, calving, and lactation.
Once heifers have their first calf, their system is depleted of nutrients. They are also lactating for the first time while they are still growing themselves. This age group has been found to be the most difficult to return to estrus and get rebred.
MULTIMIN® 90, being an injectable, rapidly improves trace mineral status of cattle with no antagonistic interference. Every animal treated is supplemented.
Research indicated a possible benefit of a compressed calving distribution1:
More calves born 20 days earlier gaining 2.5 lbs/day = Additional, heavier calves at weaning = More revenue + added value of more replacement AI calves
