Feed additive

Zeolite Feed Additive

Increasing the pace of agriculture and the restoration of lost positions in agricultural production led to an increase in demand for zeolite-containing additives, which are actively used in cattle breeding and animal husbandry.
Mineral supplements based on zeolite are a source of useful micro and macro elements, representing a biologically active multicomponent mixture of active minerals. Acting as a catalyst, zeolite-containing products are actively used as the primary product of the hygiene of the internal environment of the animal organism, to which it supplies a complete set of essential trace elements.
Zeolite-based mineral additives contain clinoptilolite, opal-cristobalite-tridymite, montmorillonite, calcite and quartz, components that are deficient in feed for farm animals. These nutrients make up more than 90% of the weight of the zeolite rock, making it the most popular product in the diet of cattle and birds.



Opal-cristobalite-tridymite belongs to the family of silicic rocks, consisting of minerals of the silicon oxide group. They not only improve the sorbing properties of the zeolite, but also significantly increase the list of sorbed components.

Clinoptilolite is a naturally occurring zeolite mineral that has unique adsorbing properties. Zeolite is an ion exchanger that works like a "molecular sieve" that cleans the gastrointestinal tract, improves the absorption of nutrients and normalizes digestion in animals.

Montmorillonite is a clay rock that has pronounced sorption properties and has a tendency to strong swelling. The component binds harmful toxins into a chain and removes them from the animal's body, stimulating ion exchange processes.

Fattening of cattle

By introducing 4% zeolite into the diet of cows, goats and other cattle, the following results were achieved:
• increase in the live weight of offspring by 7-15%;
• improvement in the birth rate of healthy offspring by 10%;
• decrease in feed consumption by 2.4%;
• improvement of blood parameters;
• increased lactation of cows;
• increase in the intensity of redox processes in the body.

Camel breeding

In this segment of the agricultural industry, the introduction of the mineral into the feed composition had a positive effect on the following indicators:
• increase in weight gain of young individuals by 6-10%;
• increase in safety of newborn camels by 10%;
• increase in milk yield by 13%;
• improvement of the chemical composition of milk;
• reduced feed consumption;
• reducing the amount of waste.

Sheep breeding

By adding a mineral additive based on zeolite to sheep feed, it was possible to:
• significantly increase wool yield;
• to increase the growth of live weight of young animals;
• increase the health of individuals.
Using a feed additive based on zeolite in the recommended doses (2-6% of the weight of dry food), side effects and effects in animals are not observed.

Dairy farming

When breeding cattle for the purpose of obtaining milk, the introduction of 4% zeolite into the feed composition gives the following results:
• improvement of the chemical composition of milk;
• reduced feed costs for 1 liter of milk;
• decrease in the number of individuals incapable of breeding;
• improving the immunity of cattle;
• increase in brood and the number of healthy offspring.

  • The effectiveness of using zeolite as an additive in feed for farm animals and birds has been repeatedly confirmed in real tests, in which the leading poultry farms of Russia and Belarus took part. Tests were carried out at such enterprises as AK BARS, Niva Tatarstan, Sotnikovskaya poultry farm and others.
    As a result of a positive influence on the course of physiological and biochemical processes of the bird, there is an increase in the growth of winged energy, the number of sick offspring decreases, and blood parameters improve. The mineral component zeolite is used as an adsorbent for poultry farm waste, reducing their pollution with waste products by 15%. This not only improves the health of the birds, but also improves the working conditions of poultry workers.
    As a result of scientific and economic experiments on the use of zeolite as an additive in animal feed, with the introduction of a share of 2-4% of the total weight of the feed, the following results were obtained:
    • increase in bird weight by 5-10%;
    • increase in the number of reproduced eggs by hens by 7-12%;
    • reduction of feed cost by 2-3%;
    • reduction of waste products of birds by 15%;
    • reduction of feed consumption by 3-5%;
    • reduction of morbidity among birds by 10%.
    Zeolite-based animal feed additives have become more widespread due to the emergence of large and stable suppliers of natural minerals at affordable prices, which were previously absent on the domestic market.
