VITA-PHOSCAL is a well balanced formulation of minerals, trace elements and vitamins.
Phosphorus and calcium
They are required for the synthesis of the bone. They also play an important role in the nervous system, blood clotting and muscle contraction. Both minerals are very important during periods of increased requirement - for example during egg laying - or periods of nutritional deficiency.
A magnesium deficiency in laying hens results in a rapid decline in egg production, hypomagnesemia, and a marked withdrawal of magnesium from bones. Egg size, shell weight and the magnesium content of yolk and shell are decreased.
A deficiency of manganese in the diet of immature chickens and turkeys is one of the potential causes of perosis (slipped tendon), and also the production of thin-shelled eggs and poor hatchability in mature birds.
In young chicks, signs of zinc deficiency include retarded growth, shortening and thickening of leg bones and enlargement of the hock joint, scaling of the skin, very poor feathering, loss of appetite, and in severe cases mortality. Zinc deficiency can reduce egg production in aging hens because it is essential for the formation of the eggshell in the shell gland.
