I WILL TAKE
THE SALT I NEED
“Salt is an essential part of my nutrition, with an enormous impact on my health, production, appetite and fertility. But my individual salt need differs from the other animals in my herd. It depends on many factors such as production, weight and temperature. As long as I have access to salt, I will take the exact amount of salt I need.”
- Always the exact right amount of salt
- Highest quality Dutch purified vacuum salt
- Moisture proof, form-proof and contains no adhesives such as molasses

KNZTM BASIC 100
KNZTM BASIC 100 is pure salt with 99.9% sodium chloride. Can be used for all animals.
KNZTM UNIVERSAL is the ideal addition to the basic ration or TMR. In addition to salt and magnesium, it contains the essential trace elements magnesium, zinc, copper, iodine, and selenium.
KNZTM FERTILITY supports fertility by a high content of selenium, iodine, and vitamin E. Use of selenium yeast guarantees a better absorption of this element.
KNZTM BIOTIN helps to prevent claw diseases and can improve body condition and milk yield.
KNZTM ELEMENTS PLUS
KNZTM ELEMENTS PLUS contains extra copper and zinc. Excellent additions for grazing cattle that have a higher need for these elements.
KNZTM UNIVERSAL MULTI
KNZTM UNIVERSAL MULTI is enriched with iron. This salt lick is very suited to animals with a higher need of iron or with an increased production level.
KNZTM JUNIOR is specially composed with trace elements and vitamins for young, growing animals. It helps them to reach their growth potential.
KNZTM SHEEP is specifically developed for sheep. In addition to salt and magnesium, it contains essential trace elements like zinc, iron, iodine, and selenium.

Na+ CL - SALT (NaCl)
acid and fluid balance, digestion
Salt is an essential mineral. Among other things, it maintains a good acid and fluid balance. It also plays an important role in the functioning of the central nervous system and muscular contraction. Moreover, KNZ salt supports the intestinal flora, which results in a better digestion.
Mg - MAGNESIUM
nerve system, muscles and bones
Among other things, Magnesium ensures healthy nerve cells, strong bones, and good muscle formation.
I - IODINE
Iodine is essential for basal metabolism by producing thyroxin by the thyroid gland. It has a positive effect on growth and development.
Se - SELENIUM
Selenium plays an important role in fertility. Selenium is a component of the antioxidant enzymes, protecting against cell damage. It prevents muscle disturbances and enhances the effectivity of iodine.
Zn - ZINC
Zinc plays an essential role in many body processes, like enzyme systems concerned with metabolism, the healing process and disease resistance. Zinc is essential for skin and bone development.
blood, organs and tissues
Iron is a component of red blood cells and improves the functioning of organs and tissues. It also plays a role in oxygen transport.
Cu - COPPER
Copper is required for enzyme activity, plays a role in the central nervous system, and is associated with iron metabolism. To have enough copper in feed is also essential for strong bones.
Vit A - VITAMIN A
immune system, metabolism, reproductive function
Vitamin A is important for the maintenance of the immune system, metabolism and reproductive function. Vitamin A is especially important when little fresh grass is fed as the levels of vitamin A go down during feed storage.
Vit D3 - VITAMIN D3
bones, immune system
Vitamin D is important for strong bone development. Vitamin D also plays a role in cell growth and –division like in the immune system. A deficiency of vitamin D could lead to problems with calcium metabolism (e.g.milk fever), decreased feed intake, impaired growth, and deterioration of bones.
VIT E - VITAMIN E
muscles, liver and blood vessels
Vitamin E has a synergetic effect in combination with Selenium. It protects membranes and prevents muscle, liver and blood vessel degeneration. White muscle disease is a classic sign of a clinical deficiency of vitamin E.
Vit H - VITAMIN H / BIOTION
Biotin is a water soluble and nitrogen containing essential vitamin (Vitamin H or B7) which is restricted available in nature. It promotes hoof health by improving horn quality.
