A primary zinc, manganese and/or selenium deficiency probably occurs in Southern Africa on sandy and leached soils. For this reason MULTIMIN Se Sheep & Angora Goats contains all three of these elements. If you have any doubts please contact your veterinarian.
Zinc, manganese and/or selenium deficiencies cause impairment of fertility, however there are many other causes of reduced fertility and professional advice should be sought. Skin lesions such as loss of hair and thickening of the skin may occur with a zinc deficiency.
Black hair, particularly in young animals, which shows a rusty brown discoloration, could be an indication of a manganese deficiency. In young animals, skeletal abnormalities such as enlarged joints, stiffness, twisted legs, weak hocks and general weakness may be due to a manganese deficiency.
Nutritional muscular dystrophy particularly in young animals, which is also known as selenium responsive myopathy, is associated with low levels of selenium in animal tissues and glutathione peroxidase in the blood, but lack of enhancing substances like vitamin E, may be involved in precipitating the clinical disease.
In breeding animals early embryonic losses and the birth of weak offspring have inter alia been associated with a selenium deficiency. The incidence of retained placentas has been considerably reduced by selenium treatment.
