Selenium plays an important role in beef cattle diets. This nutrient supports a healthy reproductive system, meat quality, and shelf life for beef products.

Sel-Plex is an organic form of selenium yeast, as it is presented in the same forms that are naturally present in plants. Organic selenium is more digestible than inorganic forms and better retained, which lets the animal build nutrient reserves against periods of increased demand without risking toxicity.
