[Nutritional biochemical aspects of the significance, of the utilization, of metabolism and of the administration of vitamin E and of selenium in sheep (review)].
A review is given on the significance, availability, metabolism and application of vitamin E and selenium in sheep. Vitamin E deficiency commonly occurs in spring. Selenium deficiency occurs in certain areas where the selenium content of plants is low. A further factor is the low availability of selenium as a consequence of reduction reactions in the forestomachs. When the supply of vitamin E and selenium is suboptimal, activity of the immune system and growth are impaired.
