At the beginning we must talk about the advantages of bone meal:
- High level of digestible phosphorus and calcium
- Natural and safe origin
- Contributes to sustain livestock production (recycling/ reuse of P)
- Low in heavy metals, dioxin and radio-activity During the digestive process in the gut , calcium and phosphorus are released at the same time and in the correct ratio for optimal absorption.
This makes B.M very suited to help to restore or help to prevent weak leg and bone problems, like osteoporosis (quite common among laying hens); or to replenish Ca and P in the skeleton after a period of a negative balance like during the startup of the milk production of lactating cows. B.M is also used in humans to help prevent osteoporosis with good results.
TRI-CALCIUM PHSPUTE Digestible P (% of total P) 87 Available P (% of total P) 100 These digestibility figures for phosphorus have been concluded from a trail done with poultry at the WUR institute (Netherland) , following the new WPSA1,2 protocol.
Nutritional data (indicative and as is) g/kg Moisture 50 Crude protein 100 Calcium 300 Phosphorus 130 Digestible P poultry 113 Available P poultry 130 ME poultry 2.7 MJ/kg Additional nutritional value the TRI-CALCIUM phosphate is still present in its original hydroxy-aptote matrix. The remaining protein (10% in the product) is collagen and represents and additional nutritional value. B.M is produced at Elephant Complex, according to the current EU feed law. B.M is permitted to be used in feeds for non-ruminants (pets – poultry – pigs). Dedicated feed mills or production lines are therefore necessary
