WHY CHOOSE ZEOLITE?
Improved Weight Gains
The application of Zeolite overseas has resulted in improved feed conversion and weight gains. Rresearchers using Zeolite in the range of 2.5% to 4% of a ration showed weight gains of up to 5% over the ‘control’ groups and feed reductions of between 3% and 5%.
Allows greater Urea Tolerance
The ability of Natural Australian Zeolite to selectively absorb ammonium is reported to both reduce urea toxicity and improve rumen utilisation of urea supplied nitrogen. This is extremely important in farm-based feedlots where the cost of bought in protein supplements is very high and the safe utilisation of increased urea involves large cost savings.
Better Rumen Buffer at a Fraction of the Cost
Natural Australian Zeolite has also performed comparably with other rumen buffers such as Sodium Bicarbonate at a fraction of the cost and without increasing the Sodium loading on the feedlot site.
Improved Rumen Microbial Activity
Some researchers suggest that dietary Natural Australian Zeolite, by maintaining a more effective rumen buffer and an improved electrolyte balance, enable the rumen microbial populations to increase to more productive levels and therefore increase dietary fibre utilisation.
Reduced Acidosis (grain poisoning)
The cation exchange capacity (CEC) of Natural Australian Zeolite enables effective rumen buffering (pH) which can reduce the acidosis effects of excessive grain intake especially during the introductory phase of feedlot rations.
Increase binding of AFLATOXINS
Other researchers report the Natural Australian Zeolite binds aflatoxins and protects livestock from their ill effects. This can be very important in farm-based feedlots where grain storage may not be perfect.
