Find minimum value different from zero

Hello,

Element1;23-10-2012;1,450;1,564;1,428
Element2;23-10-2012;1,448;1,565;1,427
Element3;23-10-2012;1,453;1,570;1,424
Element4;23-10-2012;1,428;1,542;1,405
Element5;23-10-2012;1,461;;1,453
Element6;23-10-2012;1,438;1,555;1,417
Element7;23-10-2012;1,458;1,575;1,450

Element9;23-10-2012;1,407;;1,377

and need calculate minimum value of colums 3,4 and 5

I use awk, in colum 3 work well
Code:
awk 'min=="" || $3 < min {min=$3;gaso=$3} END{ print gaso}' FS=";" file1.csv 
1,407

but in colum 4 not print any results because are rows with empty fields
how I can calculate the minimum value of column 4 without empty values​​?

thanks in advance

what you mean by first 10 rows and without last row ?

you want to check the minimum value in the first 10 rows ?

Yes, check the minimum value in the first 10 rows without empty values​​
the last row always has the minimum value
