The importance of selenium (Se) supply to growing stud bulls.

March 8, 2023

Selenium is an essential micronutrient that plays a crucial role in the health and growth of animals, including growing stud beef bulls. Adequate selenium supplementation is necessary to prevent selenium deficiency, which can cause various health problems such as muscle weakness, impaired growth, and reproductive failure. Selenium also helps to improve immune function and reduce the risk of diseases. Therefore, it is important to provide growing stud beef bulls with sufficient selenium supplementation in their diets to ensure their overall health, growth, and development. However, it is important to note that excessive selenium supplementation can also lead to toxicity, so it is essential to provide the recommended levels of selenium to avoid any adverse effects.
