Agrisea Seaweed is a New Zealand native
seaweed species (ecklonia radiata)

Seaweed is one of the most complex materials known to man.  Ecklonia Radiata, has a range of minerals and trace elements that are vital for animal health including zinc, iodine, cobalt, copper and sodium.  Agrisea Animal + is a powered combination of Animal Nutrition and Zeolite  (a recognised toxin binder).   Agrisea Animal + is an excellent way of providing trace elements that is palatable, easily assimilated and absorbable.  The probiotic effect of Animal + provides good stimulation for rumen/gut development and the supply of essential vitamins.

Sodium and Production

Salt is lost in milk, urine, faeces, sweat and saliva. And it is not insignificant – a cow milking 20 litres/day can lose the equivalent of 35g of salt in the milk each day. Pasture can be low in sodium and bulk feeds are often deficient. The benefits of sodium supplementation have been demonstrated in NZ and overseas.

Animals have a strong appetite for salt but individual salt needs will vary. Factors influencing needs include:

  • Sodium and chloride levels in the pasture
  • Sodium and chloride levels in the water
  • The production cycle – growth, reproduction and lactation will increase requirements
  • Temperature/humidity – sweating will increase sodium requirements
  • Potassium levels in the diet – animals will try to balance high potassium feeds with additional salt to maintain fluid balance
  • Low sodium levels in bulk feeds
