5QUESTION 2:2.1Micro-mineralsare the minor mineral elements present in the animals feed ration, classified according to thequantitative dietary requirements, being less than 50mg/kg of feed. They are referred to as trace minerals asthey are present at low levels in the body, or are required in smaller amounts in the animals’ diet. They are Iron, Copper, Zinc, Iodine, Selenium, Manganese, Cobalt, Chromium, Sulphur and Fluorine.Micro-minerals provide the essential nutrients animals need for metabolic functions such as growth and development, immunity and reproduction.2.2Metabolic wateris water generated from metabolic processes such as respiration. It is formed by a type of metabolism called catabolism in which complex molecules are broken down to release their stored energy, with water as a by-product. 2.3Non-protein Nitrogen (NPN) are nitrogen-containing compounds that are not polymers of primary amino acids that are present in feed. They contain nitrogen that is not derived from true protein, but usable by rumen microbes to build microbial protein. NPNis a term used in animal nutrition to refer collectively to
