Dutch to English translations [Non-PRO]
Livestock / Animal Husbandry / pig feed
Dutch term or phrase: vitaminen en mineralenkern
This comes up in some pig regulations, specifically the section about home mixing of feed.

Bereiding voer door zelfmengers [home mixers or on-farm mixers]

De varkenshouder, die voor eigen gebruik mengvoeders met voormengsels of mengvoeders met toevoegingsmiddelen bereidt, is daartoe geregistreerd bij het Productschap Diervoeder.
Deze norm is van toepassing op de zelfmengers. Zij kopen alleen enkelvoudige grondstoffen [straight ingredients] om deze te mengen met een **vitaminen en mineralenkern.**
Voor bedrijven die concentraten (voor b.v. 30%, 60% of 70% bijmenging) aanvoeren van een mengvoer leverancier geldt deze norm niet.

I’m wondering if it could be a vitamin and mineral premix or perhaps vitamin and mineral supplements.
