Animals require a daily intake of calcium and magnesium. Lhoist offers a range of mineral products to help you create a balanced approach to animal nutrition.

Our products contribute natural calcium and magnesium as mineral additives for animal nutrition, either in pure form or as a component in mixed feed formulations.

Broilers and layers have different requirements relative to the size of mineral particles that supply their calcium needs.  This directly correlates to resultant eggshell quality and broiler performance. Therefore, it is necessary to use specifically prescribed nutritional supplements in every phase of growth for each particular animal category.  Lhoist offers customized solutions to this market in a wide range of particle sizes that target the proper utilization of calcium.

Following new production requirements in the animal nutrition market, it is necessary to have an appropriate supply of calcium to ensure high bioavailability throughout the production cycle and prevent metabolic disorders.

Our products have highly precise particle sizes that are obtained through a rigorous quality control process that is conducted from deposit extraction through final packaging. Innovative technologies in milling and classification ensure consistently controlled solubility.

Lhoist is also working with leading universities to investigate and better understand the calcium and magnesium requirements of the animal nutrition market.

In addition, our products have been certified as a food additive in dog and cat foods.
