Iodine Combo High Selenium
Iodine Combo Hi Selenium drench contains a range of essential trace minerals required by sheep and goats to reach their reproductive and growth potential. Iodine deficiency is a common problem resulting in goitre and low survivability in new-born lambs and kids.
Iodine deficiency is a common problem in sheep and goats as a result of iodine deficient soils or as a consequence of feeding brassicas with a high goitrogenic content that can interfere with iodine metabolism. Goitre in ewes will lead to a low reproductive performance and low survivability in new-born lambs. Animals grazing brassica crops should be supplemented with iodine.

Each litre of concentrate contains:
Iodine - 504.9 grams
