Kelp Meal - Animal Feed Supplement

 KELP MEAL

ANIMAL FEED SUPPLEMENT

Accepted in Organic Agriculture

INTRODUCTION

Kelp Meal is an animal feed supplement made from the seaplant Ascophyllum nodosom. It is harvested from the seaweed from the cold, clean waters of the Maine coast. The live plant is quickly dried at a low temperature to preserve its valuable vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids, and alginates. Kelp meal  is a naturally balanced supplement containing over 100 micronutrients. It fulfills the requirements in animals for trace elements that are often lacking in land-grown feeds and pastures (due to erosion or leaching), and standard mineral mixes.


Kelp Meal AS A SUPPLEMENT

Kelp meal is a rich and dependable source of 60 minerals and elements including iodine, 21 amino acids, and 12 vitamins (including A, C, B12, thiamin, and vitamin E or tocopherol). Because the minerals are in plant tissue they are easily digested and assimilated. Many of the trace minerals contained in SeaLife are essential for producing enzymes which in turn promote healthy body functions.

At the recommended feeding rates kelp meal is highly economical to use – one to two percent of the feed ration translates to pennies per day. Our processing techniques and packaging help to maintain product integrity over time.


AVAILABLE SIZES:

50-lb bags

25-lb pails with resealable lids


BENEFITS OF KELP MEAL - Technical research and farmer and breeder observations indicate a variety of benefits from the consumption of kelp meal – all evidence of good health and productivity.

Beef Cattle, Horses, Swine, Sheep, Goats, Poultry 

  • Improves feed utilization  
  • Excellent source of iodine which helps regulate metabolism  
  • Improves overall production (e.g., milk, weight gain)
  • Reduces or eliminates breeding problems  
  • Reduces internal parasites in pigs  
  • Reduces the incidence of white muscle disease in lambs  
  • Prevents wool shedding and increases wool quality in sheep

     

Dairy Cows

  • Increases milk butterfat levels with fewer fluctuations
  • Increases iodine content in milk  
  • Reduces the incidence of mastitis
  • Significantly reduces milk fever  
  • Reduces or eliminates breeding problems (e.g., reduces the number of services required for conception, increases the rate of conception)

     

Chickens

  • Increases egg production and iodine content  
  • Darkens yolk and skin color  
  • Strengthens shells

     

Pets

  • Enhances the flexibility and sheen of the skin and coat in dogs, cats, and horses – a good measure of overall health

     


Feeding Rates

Recommended feeding rates are generally 1 to 2 percent of the feed ration or 40 to 50 pounds of SeaLife to 1 ton of feed.

Dairy Cows and Beef Cattle: 2 - 4 oz. per day

Heifers: 2 - 4 oz. per day

Calves: 1 – 2 oz. per day

Range Cattle: free choice at two parts meal to one part salt mix

Horses: ½ oz. per day

Goats: 2% of ration

Sheep: 2% of ration

Swine: Free choice or 50 lbs to 2000 lbs of complete ration

Chickens, broilers or layers: 1% of total feed pre-mixed

Turkeys: 1 to 2% of total feed pre-mixed

Dogs (standard size): 1 teaspoon per day

Cats: ¼ teaspoon per day
