FEEDING FOOD GRADE FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR DIATOMACEOUS EARTH TO LIVESTOCK
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) or Fossil Shell Flour is so pure that the Food and Drug Administration has given it a "food-grade" designation. The governments of the United States and Canada recognize that fossil shell flour is safe to use in animal foods. Fossil Shell Flour prevents "clumping" of feed particles by keeping them separate, so there is improved flowability, mixability and handling of the animal feed. This in turn, creates two big advantages to the animals who consume fossil shell flour in their recommended feed ration. First, acting as an anti-caking agent to prevent "clumping" of feed particles, the surface area of feed exposed to the digestive processes - both bacterial and enzymatic - is increased and therefore more feed is actually digested and utilized. Secondly, fossil shell flour contains a small amount of 14 trace minerals. Thousands of animal owners and livestock breeders have discovered that adding fossil shell flour to their animals' rations has produced a number of incredible benefits.
Given to cows, milk production increased 25%. Mixed with the feed of sheep, 8-year-old ewes were soon springing around like young Iambs. Hogs stopped chewing their wood feeding troughs. Tumors and cysts disappeared, and flies in the farmyard were practically eliminated."
