Seashellgrit No. 4
Seashell grit is a natural and useful calcium source for poultry. Calcium is absorbed completely, but gradually into the bloodstream. This results in a higher and more constant calcium level, even during the formation of the eggshell. The administering of sea shell grit to the feed of older laying hens in particular has a direct result.
During the productive life of them, the need for calcium is enormous. The amount of calcium in the eggshell is so high that it must be able to absorb a great deal of calcium in a short time. With older laying hens, the efficiency and speed with which they do so deteriorate. This is the reason why older laying hens get problems with the calcium supply, as a result of which the quality of the eggshell deteriorates. Seashell grit is a useful source of calcium, which helps to prevent this problem.
The use of sea shell grit in laying hens has been known for years. However, there are also good opportunities for using sea shell grit in broiler farming. Seashell grit has a positive effect on the construction of a sturdy skeleton. Furthermore, the coarse grit provides a better grinding of the feed. This leads to fewer feed disorders.
Influence on feed conversion:
Seashell grit has a coarse structure. As a result, the animal can take it selectively, as required. Research shows that this has a positive effect on feed conversion; grit prevents overfeeding.
Seashell grit is a natural product from the sea. It contains, in addition to calcium, other minerals and metals. We produce the seashell grit according to strict regulations. The products are washed, dried under high temperature and then sieved.
