Animal nutrition applications

Animals require a daily intake of calcium and magnesium for the vital balance of their organism. At Lhoist, we offer a range of mineral products to help you create a balanced approach to animal nutrition. 

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

Broilers and laying hens require different particles size from their calcium source. This directly influences their resultant shell quality and broiler performance. It is therefore necessary to use the right prescribed products in each phase of growth for each specific animal category. At Lhoist, we offer 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, an appropriate supply of calcium is needed to ensure high bioavailability throughout the production cycle and prevent metabolic disorders. 

Our products are selected through a rigorous quality control process, conducted from deposit extraction through final packaging. Innovative technologies in milling and classification ensure consistently controlled solubility. 

We are 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 feed additive in pet food.
