Animal Feeds, Supplements and Lick Blocks

In liquid in the GI tract fine ground CMZ finds application in products used in animal feed. CMZ is an aluminosilicate where 1 in 4 silicon molecules are replaced by an aluminium molecule. This generates a single negative charge on each of the ring structures inside the highly porous inner structure of the Zeolite. Each charged atom binds to a positively charged ion. In the GI tract of animals this is an ammonium ion from Nitrogen in the feed from the breakdown of Nitrogen compunds, protein or urea. High levels of ammonia are toxic to animals. Bound Nitrogen can be reabsorbed further down the GI tract. This is referred to as improved Nitrogen efficacy.

Other benefits of CMZ in feed, supplements and lick blocks are:

  • increases weight gain in all animals and birds;
  • assists in reducing malodour from faeces, urine or cloacal material in sheds, feed lots and transport vehicles;
  • may diminish ammonia toxicity and scours;
  • improves safety where urea is used;
  • aids in the delivery of essential minerals including trace elements; 
  • helps treat a range of metabolic syndromes;
  • may be used as part of a strategy to reduce mortality from ingestion of poisonous plants;
  • reduces flies; &,
  • firms excreta by binding up water and making it more manageable.

‘I am a 4th generation grazier, experience ranging from the dry tropics Qld Gulf country, to the New England Tablelands NSW. As a passionate believer in the fundamentals and drivers of soil health, particularly in fluctuating climate, to maintain the profitable production of nutrient dense pasture and beef, we are very impressed with the accumulative synergies of Biochar, Zeolite, and sea based products.'
