Application of Diatomite in livestock and poultry industry
In the development orientation of the livestock industry in the world and Vietnam, the livestock and poultry industry aims to raise livestock on a large scale with clean and environmentally friendly technology, especially products used in livestock. raising meat, eggs, feathers, skin as well as food sources, veterinary medicine, and high standards of barns such as Global Gap and Viet gab.
Besides, it is to develop the livestock industry according to the trend of breeding according to Organic standards
Therefore, Diatomite is a new source of natural, non-toxic, environmentally friendly raw materials used in the livestock industry to be used through the two main product lines as follows:
- Feed animals additives.
With special physical substances, such as porosity, good adsorption, low density and thermal conductivity, small particle size and large surface area. along with other properties such as acidity, solubility, hydrophobicity, ion exchange function and absorption.
Due to its high absorbency and itself becomes an ideal product as an inert carrier and anti-caking and feed supplementation applications in feed.
In addition, Diatomite contains 23 macro and trace elements which are iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, manganese, copper, aluminum, zine, cobalt. Diatomite is a single natural mineral feed.
Therefore, Diatomite is blended in additive products and animal feed with the following main effects:
– Carriers, fillers and clumping of animal feed
– Anti-fungal animal feed (due to the mechanism of mycotoxin adsorption by mold)
– Preservation of animal feed
– Kill parasites in the intestinal tract and protect the digestive system of animals
– Improve the immune system, minimize pathogens.
Product quality standards of Diatomite in the animal feed industry
- Diatomite material in barn treatment
Besides the raw materials in animal feed additives. Diatomite also plays a role in dealing with odors in livestock and poultry farms.
Based on good moisture and air adsorption properties. Diatomite adsorbs impurities and bacteria into the diatomeae algae frame along with treating the humidity of the barn, handling odors caused by livestock waste. Especially, Diatomite mixed with other materials such as lime powder, sawdust, probiotics .. is the optimal biological cushion product for livestock barns.
With a cycle of 06, change the gasket once. The cushioning product is both an effective solution to help keep the environment clean, kill germs, improve resistance and prevent disease.
Biological buffers containing diatomite are also considered as a completely natural bio-organic fertilizer to improve soil and cultivate agricultural crops.
