Minerals in grass animal feed

AppNote XRF1552: analysis of minerals in grass animal feed

Background

The mineral content of animal feeds is carefully blended and monitored to ensure optimal animal health and quality of product. Grass-fed dairy cattle require the optimum balance of the major minerals calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus, as well as the trace minerals copper, manganese and zinc. Proper mineral balance ensures optimum milk quality and production. To meet the industry need of monitoring the mineral content Rigaku offers the NEX QC+ EDXRF analyzer for the fast and simple measurement of grass and other animal feeds.
