Phosphorus, the essential element
Mineral elements are known to have many different functions in animal nutrition, and a range of macro- and micro-elements has been identified as essential. One of these vital elements is phosphorus, which is the second most abundant mineral in the animal body after calcium. Phosphorus plays a major metabolic role and has more physiological functions than other elements. It is, for example, involved in the development and maintenance of skeletal tissue (80% of the phosphorus is found in the bones), as well as in energy utilization and transfer, and in the maintenance of osmotic and acid-base balances.
The most common symptoms associated with phosphorus deficiency are: reduction in live weight gain caused by loss of appetite, leg disorders, reduced hatchability, reduced fertility and vulnerability to specific diseases. An adequate supply of phosphorus in the feed is, therefore, crucial to the health and optimal production of livestock.
