Dear All,

How are you! I do agree with Aziz Sacranie that Alltech is the leader in regards to producing quality organic trace minerals for meat production. I have series of research during my PhD program using Bioplex Minerals especially Bioplex Zn for growth development, tissue mineral content and carcass quality of chicken particularly skin quality of the chicken. Some of our research findings already published in Avian Biology research, British Poultry Science and Biological Trace Element Research Journals. I do believe, that publication are informative and helpful for the researchers as well as for the industry.

Have a great day!
