limestone for feed grade

Status: Available
I. Introduction
Basic feeds often contain essential minerals, but the proportions are often inadequate. So that animals require dietary mineral supplements to maintain good health and production, especially if kept in confinement permanently. Adequate mineral uptake and food and water intake represent one of the basic requirements for successful animal production. Animal feeding practice uses numerous mineral supplements to provide calcium. Limestone is an additive that is the most widely used out of them all.

II. What is limestone for feed grade?
Limestone for feed grade is a nutritional feed supplement. Limestone is primarily used in stock feed as a calcium source. Limestone varies in composition and as such, available Calcium also varies. Calcium is the most abundant chemical in the body. About 98% of the body’s calcium is in the skeleton and teeth and represents about 2% of the animal body weight.

III. Roles of Limestone in livestock feeding industry.
Limestone is an essential mineral for the healthy growth and development of livestock and domestic animals. It plays an important role in the metabolic process, retention and conversion of nutrients and regulates cell activity. It also supports healthy bone and skeleton development in young livestock. Calcium is one of the main minerals needed by animals to grow, develop and produce.Different animals require different level or quantities of Limestone at different stages of their growth. It is always best to consult with a professional animal nutritionist to ensure the correct ratio for animal feed of livestock.Therefore, Limestone can be included in foods and diets for beef and dairy cattle, poultry, horses and sheep. Animals require Calcium for teeth and bone formation, transmission of nerve impulses, muscle excitability, cardiac regulation, blood clotting and activation of enzymes.
General inclusion rates per ton of feed vary from 5-15 kg dependent on calcium content and input from other ingredients. Calcium is supported in activity by Vitamin D as a transport agent. Calcium and Phosphorous are often grouped together in a common ratio of 2:1, however, ratios of 1:1 and 7:1 result in nearly equal performance provided the animals Phosphorous intake meets requirement.
It is vital that calcium levels are correct for the target species, calcium availability decreases when an animal intake exceeds its requirements, absorption declines regardless of calcium availability.
