SALTS FOR LIVESTOCK USE

In agriculture, salt is used both for nourishing animals and plants, and as a preservative for fodder.
Vegetable feeds, intended for breeding, are almost free of salt.
In the production of food supplements, thanks to the presence of natural trace elements, salt has a fundamental role together with that of feed, both simple and compound.

Thanks to our products, it is possible to cover the salt needs of both farm animals and wild animals.
- Feed salts
- Iodized salt for zoo technical use
- Blocks from salt enriched with minerals
- Natural rock salt mines

The integration implemented through the placement of blocks of salt allows the animal to freely acquire the salt, according to its needs, and without risking an excessive intake.

Salt is a preserving agent used in salting fodder that protects the fermentation and decay of hay, preserving its nutritional qualities, with particular attention to the legumes and grasses energy qualities, protecting their organoleptic characteristics of color and taste.

Sodium and chlorine cover important functions to maintain the necessary osmotic pressure of the cells in the tissues, the acid-base balance and the exchanges through the cell membranes; chlorine also forms the hydrochloric acid of gastric juice.Sodium and chlorine cover important functions to maintain the necessary osmotic pressure of the cells in the tissues, the acid-base balance and the exchanges through the cell membranes; chlorine also forms the hydrochloric acid of gastric juice.Sodium chloride is essential for intestinal absorption of sugars, amino acids, and also in the transmission of nerve impulses.This substance is lost in large quantities from the animal through:

  • Milk transfer (there are 2,5 grams of salt for 1 Liter of milk)
  • Sweat
  • Excrement

Farm animals in general are unable to receive enough of these two substances in their diet, with the risk of having less growth consequences, less milk production, lack of appetite, fertility problems and less resistance to heat and disease.To supplement this deficiency generally sea salt and rock salt are used, in sea salt there are substances such as sodium chloride and other mineral principles useful for livestock such as potassium, iodine and magnesium
